Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has picked up his nomination forms to contest the presidential primary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The Vice President was represented by former Vice Chairman of the NPP, Fred Oware, and former National Organiser Sammy Awuku.
Dr. Bawumia on Monday informed New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters in the Volta Region that he would contest the primary.
Addressing NPP supporters during an informal meeting in Hohoe over the weekend, Dr. Bawumia said “I want you to know that I appreciate your support. We are going to break the 8. First of all, we are going to file for the flagbearership which I’m going to do, win the flagbearership, break the 8, and go to Jubilee House. That is what I’m going to do,” he noted
The party had refused to all the former to a group known as the ‘Bawumia Fan Club’ on May 26.
The group led by its founder, Ntim Jakari said Dr Bawumia deserves to be given the nod to lead the NPP.
They argued that he is the only candidate that can help the elephant family break the 8-year-jinx.
