Dr. Bawumia Cannot Guarantee Victory To The NPP In The 2024 General Elections-Ken Kuranchie Asserted.

A Ghanaian journalist and the Managing Editor of the Daily Searchlight Newspaper, Mr. Kenneth Agyei Kuranchie has expressed skepticism regarding the political capabilities of the flag bearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party, asserting that Dr. Mahmud Bawumia lacks the driving force needed to secure victory for the party in the upcoming 2024 general elections.

Mr. Kuranchie compared Dr. Bawumia’s political engine to that of a pick-up truck, contrasting it with President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo’s metaphorical “Albion Engine”, that propelled the New Patriotic Party to success in the 2016 general elections.

He likened the currents president candidacy to a force of nature, capable of overcoming any obstacle in its path. Howbeit, Mr. Kuranchie revealed that, Dr. Bawumia political engine lacks the same level of power and momentum, suggesting that it would require the support of numerous smaller engines, represented metaphorically by popular parliamentary candidates to drive the party to victory on December 7, 2024.

Speaking on the Saturday’s edition of the “Citizen Show” on Accra 100.5 fm on May 11, 2024, the managing editor of the Daily Searchlight Newspaper, Mr. Kuranchie, who previously contested unsuccessfully for the NPP in the Okaikwe North Constituency and is now running as an independent candidate, vehemently critisized the party’s decision making process during its primary elections. He lamented that the party prioritised expediency over selecting candidate who could garner widespread support from the electorates.

Mr. Kuranchie, made mention of the fact that, the importance of adhering to the party’s rules and regulations, suggesting that, deviating from these guidelines had resulted in the selection of candidates who may not be able to effectively support Dr. Bawumia’s candidacy. His remarks underscores concern within the NPP about its electoral strategy and the perceived strength of its leadership ahead of the 2024 general elections.
