As Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo’s two terms in office come to an end in 2024, Ghana is expected to elect a new president. The New Patriotic Party and the opposition National Democratic Congress are the candidates for the election.
Oliver Barker-Vormawor, organiser of the non-partisan and non-political Ghanaian youth civic movement, #FixTheCountry has noted that it is difficult to convince citizens to elect Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia as Ghana’s next president.
In a Facebook post, the activist wrote that “Selling Bawumia to the electorate is like trying to convince people that Kokonte is fried rice.
The ruling NPP is fielding the current Vice President as one of the other potential candidates for the upcoming presidency. While for the NDC, there is growing support for former President John Dramani Mahama.
