The Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Godfred Yeboah-Dame, has endorsed Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer position.
He described him as a man of integrity, intellect, and experience to break the eight-year jinx of power in Ghana.
Speaking to journalists after casting his ballot, the Minister opined that Dr. Bawumia is the only candidate who can lead the NPP to victory in the 2024 presidential election.
“Bawumia has the integrity, he has the intellect, he has the experience, and he has the vision to lead the NPP to victory in 2024 and to break the eight,” Yeboah-Dame said. “He is the only candidate who can do it.”
In his view, Dr. Bawumia has been part of the several achievements of this administration.
Dr. Bawunia is number two on the ballot paper and has expressed strong optimism about winning the race and representing the party in the 2024 general elections.
“I’m reasonably confident of winning,” Bawumia said after casting his ballot at the NPP Headquarters, adding, “But it’s in God’s hands.”
The other candidates are Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, former Agriculture Minister Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and former Mampong MP Francis Addai-Nimoh.
Over 200,000 NPP delegates across the country are voting on Saturday to elect a presidential candidate for the 2024 election.
