A former Communications Director for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa has expressed concerns about the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential primary, suggesting that the delegates were not given the freedom to choose their preferred candidate.
He mentioned three factors influencing the appeal for voting for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, including countering the perception of the NPP as an Akan party, addressing the NDC’s fear of Bawumia, and leveraging Bawumia’s connection with the Muslim community and Zongos.
“The import of skewing the election is that there wasn’t a genuine choice. Delegates were not given the room to select a person of their choice… it means that the person that the party has brought may not necessarily reflect the choice of voters in Ghana,” he said.
However, Buaben Asamoa believes these factors do not align with the desires of the Ghanaian people, and he remains confident in Alan Kyerematen’s chances in the general election.
“That is why I am convinced Alan will win this election. Because voters have evolved faster than the NDC and NPP. What they need is not the messaging coming out of these parties.”
