Member of Parliament for the Abuakwa South Constituency, Samuel Atta Akyea is rooting for the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to take over the baton as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer in the coming 2024 general elections.

Some prominent names such as the Trades Minister, Alan Kyerematen, Agric Minister, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong, and former Railways minister, Joe Ghartey have popped up as the next to lead the NPP when President Akufo-Addo end his 8-year office as president.

But speaking on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana monitored by A1 Radio, Mr. Atta Akyea believes the perfect match for the NPP to break the 8-year mantra is for Alan Kyeremantan to partner Dr. Bawumia in the next polls.

“A lot of people are saying that let’s compensate Alan for the troubles he’s gone through. Well, that’s a way to also bring together one factor, there is one from the north, eminent person partnered with somebody of Ashanti or Fanti background, it is a perfect ticket. At the end of it, you will realize that Dr. Bawumia will come out as the first person who is making the bid to become a president with an economics background.”

Many critics including Hopson Adorye have said the NPP is an Akan party and the will no way the vice president, Dr. Bawumia will be voted as flagbearer if decides to contest the party’s flagbearership.

But Mr. Atta Akyea believes electing Dr. Bawumia as the party’s flagbearer will unite the party towards the next election.

“It is going to give a face also, that NPP is a national party. The history of NPP should change. The history of the NPP should look like it is a national party. We don’t want to give anybody the impression that we are users. Let’s use the man to the point of nothingness and dump the person. He [Dr. Bawumia] is a competent man and he reflects the unity of the party. Let’s get somebody like Alan to partner him.”
