A member of the campaign team for Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Mr Alex Tetteh, has vehemently opposed the possibility of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia winning the flagbearership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the 2024 elections.
Mr Tetteh, who also happens to be the founder and leader of pressure group, Citizen Eye Ghana (CITEG) revealed that the present vice president of Ghana has lost touch with the core grassroots of the party.

In an interview on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia morning show, Mr Tetteh went as far as saying if Bawumia gets the nod ahead of his boss Kennedy Agyapong, he will kill himself by ingesting poison.
He believes that the vice president has failed to look out for their interests and is merely trying to pay his way through the election, thus NPP delegates have made it their mission to vote against him.
“The day that you see that delegates have elected Bawumia… I will drink poison and die. You will not hear me speak on the radio again.
Let the time come and we will see. You think you can just give someone money and go sit somewhere after four years then you come back to them? See how dejected NPP delegates have become despite their party being in power. It is as if they are rather in opposition,” he stated.
He noted that Kennedy Agyapong will win the NPP flagbearership due to his record of promoting delegates’ welfare and fidelity to the party.
