Why Alan Kyerematen Should Consider Becoming Bawumia’s Running Mate: Insights From Osei Nyarko
In a recent statement, Kennedy Osei Nyarko, the Member of Parliament representing Akim Swedru in the Eastern Region, has made a compelling case for Alan Kyerematen to explore the possibility of joining forces with Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as the dynamic duo for the NPP’s 2024 electoral campaign.
Nyarko argued that it would be a strategic move to nominate Vice President Bawumia as the presidential candidate and position Mr. Kyerematen as his running mate.
According to Osei Nyarko, Alan Kyerematen’s bid for the presidency might face considerable challenges after he secured the third position in the Super Delegates Conference. The political spotlight now appears to be firmly fixed on Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Kennedy Agyapong.
“If I were advising Mr. Alan Kyerematen at this critical juncture, I would strongly encourage him to engage in negotiations for the running mate position, effectively closing the door to potential competitors,” Nyarko expressed on his official Facebook profile.
Nyarko continued, “None of our aspirants has held the office of Vice President, except for Dr. Bawumia. It’s essential for him to ascend, while others explore the role of Vice President. This partnership has the potential to foster unity within the NPP and provide a competitive edge in the 2024 general elections.”
The recent New Patriotic Party’s Super Delegates Conference saw four presidential candidates successfully secure their positions among the top five flagbearer aspirants. However, an unexpected tie between two candidates necessitates an additional round of decision-making to finalize the fifth candidate.
Notably, Vice President Bawumia emerged as the frontrunner, securing an impressive 68.15% of the total votes cast, closely followed by Kennedy Agyapong, who garnered 15.03% of the votes.
In conclusion, Kennedy Osei Nyarko’s recommendation for Alan Kyerematen to explore the running mate slot alongside Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has sparked an intriguing conversation within the NPP. As the party navigates its path towards the 2024 general elections, this suggestion could play a pivotal role in shaping the political landscape.
