Majority Chief Whip in Parliament, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, has asked his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to pair Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Trade Minister Alan Kyeremateng as Presidential candidate and Vice, respectively, for the 2024 general elections.
In his view, this is the best bet for the governing party to continue staying in power in 2024 and beyond.
“Been advocating for this ‘heavenly’ pair for a while, I am pretty sure it shall crystalize eventually… Lets give it a deeper reflection. It’s our surest bet, patriots!” Mr Annoh-Dompreh who is also lawmaker for Nswam-Adoagyiri tweeted.

Although they are yet to officially declare their intentions to contest for their flagbearer position of the NPP, supporters of both Dr Bawumia and Mr Kyerematen have started campaigning to get their preferred candidate elected.
President Akufo-Addo had also called for a transparent process in electing the flagbearer for the party ahead of the elections.
“We should have a transparent, credible, acceptable process for choosing our next flagbearer.
“The same way as I came out of such a process, it should be my responsibility to make sure that the process for choosing the next leaders of the NPP will be equally free of doubt or machination or manipulation and for me that is absolutely key.
“I’m hoping that a level playing field that allows us to elect our next presidential candidate, will also bring us a candidate who can unite our party,” he said in a radio interview.
