The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has a damaged corporate reputation. Additionally, with the Vice President being recently elected as flag bearer, the chances of the NPP winning the 2024 election are slim to none. This is according to Dr. Jonathan Asante Otchere, Political political analyst.

Dr. Asante Otchere made the comments when he spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show today, Monday, November 6, 2023. 

On Saturday, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia was elected as the flagbearer to contest on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 presidential election.

He polled 118,210 of the 192,446 valid votes cast, representing 61.47, to beat his closest competitor, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, in the keenly contested election.

Mr Agyapong, MP, Assin Central, garnered 71,996 votes, representing 37.41 per cent ahead of two other contenders: former Minister of Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, 1,459 votes, translating into 0.76 percent, and former MP for Mampong, Francis Addai-Nimoh, 781 votes, representing 0.41 percent.

A total of 193,346 votes were cast; 900 were rejected.

Dr. Asante Otchere explained that the NPP may just have befuddled its chances. 

“The NPP did not position itself strategically to avoid controversy. Going with Dr. Bawumia is the wrong strategy. Dr. Bawumia has more questions to answer than he answers. The NPP as a party is corporately damaged. As a corporate entity, it is damaged. It doesn’t have good will. It doesn’t matter who leads them, but I think the electorate could have been easily confused by the presence of the likes of Kennedy Agyapong and could easily have believed.”

“As it stands now, believability and trustworthiness when it comes to Dr. Bawumia is almost close to zero,” he said.
