Former Minister for Works and Housing and MP for Abuakwa South, Hon. Atta Akyea has revealed that, presenting Bawumia and Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen as NPP Presidential and Vice candidates for the 2024 election is the sure bet to break the eight-year cycle.
Mr. Atta Akyea who was speaking on Ekosii sen on Asempa FM on Thursday, August 17, made the remarks when the host asked for his preferred candidate for the upcoming internal election.
According to remarks made by the lawmaker prior to the interview, he insisted on his stance of having Bawumia-Alan ticket as he believes that will save the party fierce internal wrangling and builds unity towards the 2024 general elections.
” I still hold on to my beliefs (Bawumia-Alan) ticket. I believe all those vying to be presidential candidates qualify to lead the party, but looking at where we stand as a party, I believe it’s best to present Bawumia -Alan”
The lawmaker stated that, while he’s not against competition in the party, it is his belief that encouraging unwarranted competition would not be good for the party.
“I don’t believe in unbridled competition in the party, where we stand now, we are in a position where we need to take strategic decision which have beneficial consequences for the party.”
Mr Atta Akyea touted the achievements and successes the country enjoys when the New Patriotic Party is in power and the need for the party to work hard to maintain power for the benefits of the country.
“We will have a reversal of fortunes if NDC are to come to power, because it’s known that whenever NPP is in power they bring policies that benefits the country and this is why I am passionate about my call for Bawumia-Alan ticket.”
He believes that, the NPP led by Bawumia stands a huge chance of beating Former President John Mahama should NDC present him as a candidate again.
