Dr Richard Amoako Baah has issued a caution to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regarding President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s involvement in campaigning for Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s presidential bid.
Amoako Baah argued that the president’s declining popularity could have a detrimental effect on Bawumia’s chances and potentially fuel public discontent.
He emphasized that there is a considerable amount of anger and bitterness directed at the president by the citizens.
Amoako Baah warned that if the president actively campaigns for Bawumia, any negative sentiments held against him might transfer to the Vice President, potentially hindering Bawumia’s campaign and electoral prospects.
This caution underscores the complexities of political dynamics and public opinion in Ghana.
“Nana Addo was saying he will campaign for Dr. Bawumia to become president, that is not true…if they claim I am against the NPP for now, I am just advising them. If they include Nana Addo in their campaign, they should forget it because he is no longer popular, people are really angry with him, so if he goes and campaigns for Bawumia, the bitterness people hold against him will be transferred to Mahamudu Bawumia.
“That is the truth, so, anything people hold against him will be transferred to Bawumia if he campaigns for him. So, it is not a good thing for them to be saying that Nana Addo is going to campaign for Bawumia.”
