Kweku Boahen, a former Deputy National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed criticism of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s bid for the flagbearer position in the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
During a panel discussion on UTV’s Adekye Nsroma on November 2, 2023, he stated that the NDC would celebrate with a feast if Bawumia secures the NPP’s flagbearer slot.
Boahen went on to describe the vice president as the “worst candidate” among the quartet vying for the position and claimed that he doesn’t measure up to NDC’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.
“Can he even speak now? When he went campaigning, was he able to list just one particular thing that he could do as a president?
“Have you seen him being able to engage the media, because he is afraid that the media will ask him questions? If Bawumia wins, we will kill a very fat cow because he is the one, we are looking for.
“He is the worst person who cannot compete with John Mahama, which is why he has been engaging in tribal politics in the north,” he said.
