The Quest for a Running Mate for Bawumia



In the intricate tapestry of Ghana’s political sphere, the selection of a running mate holds unparalleled significance, capable of charting the course of a political party’s destiny. Amid names like Ursula Owusu, an Akyem, Kyei-Mensah Bonsu, a northerner from mother’s side, and Matthew Opoku Prempeh another Akyem from mother’s side, one candidate emerges as a towering figure — Ing. Kwabena Agyapong. Here’s why he stands head and shoulders above the rest:

Profound Roots in Kumasi

Kwabena Agyapong’s deep roots in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region, provide a strategic advantage. His familiarity with the region can be a catalyst in securing more votes, especially from the grassroots.

*Popularity with Grassroots*

Agyapong’s immense popularity among the grassroots is a crucial factor. Connecting with the local population is fundamental, and his resonance in Kumasi can significantly contribute to this, ensuring a substantial vote bank for the party.

Dedication and Commitment

Agyapong’s long-standing membership and active role in the NPP signify unwavering dedication. His commitment since the party’s inception demonstrates a rare loyalty that can enhance the cohesion and strength of the party.

*Campaign Involvement* Active participation in campaigns for notable NPP candidates, including Albert Adu Boahen, John Kufuor, and Nana Akufo-Addo, showcases Agyapong’s wealth of experience. This experience can be invaluable in shaping and executing effective strategies for the party.

Political Arena Engagement

Agyapong’s prolonged involvement in Ghana’s political arena is a testament to his understanding of the complexities and dynamics. His seasoned perspective will greatly contribute significantly to navigating the intricate political landscape.

Press Secretary Role

Serving as the Press Secretary to President John Kufuor from 2001 to 2006 showcases Agyapong’s capacity for high-profile roles. This experience brings a unique skill set to the table, particularly in communications and public relations.

I will not bore readers with an entire biography. In short, the strategic pairing of Dr. Bawumia with Kwabena Agyapong has more potential to break the eight-year cycle than any other combination. Make no mistake, Kwabena is 10x more popular than the next best person!
