Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is exploiting government resources and staff, according to Yaw Buaben Asamoa, a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) communications director and spokeswoman for Alan Kyerematen’s campaign.

In the race to lead the NPP into the 2024 general elections, Dr. Bawumia is ahead of the former Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen and MP for Assin Central Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, according to a survey of NPP delegates by Global InfoAnalytics and Citi TV/Citi FM.

Dr. Bawumia is in the lead with 34.8% of the vote, followed by Kyerematen with 27.9% and Kennedy Agyapong with 12.5%, according to the poll.

In a run-off, Alan Kyerematen is ahead of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, according to the poll, 38% to 37% of the vote. In the event of a run-off, 16% of the delegates were unsure, and 9% did not want to say who they would support.

On Thursday, Mr. Asamoah gave a statement during an interview with Eyewitness News on Citi FM in Accra.

“Anyone who claims the vice president is not running for office is not being truthful with you. He sends out government appointees to distribute rewards. They are the ones being threatened with the consequences. There are people to whom various things are being promised.

Teams of government appointees and party leaders are constantly and frequently working on his behalf as they travel the nation. Therefore, it is not about him; instead, he is actively campaigning across the nation with the help of government workers in an effort to win over delegates, the speaker said.

Mr. Buaben added that because of the grassroots campaigning being conducted in favor of the Vice President, participants felt compelled to support him.

“All of this is a result of the influences you notice in the polling. According to the folks, it will be safer for me to tell it that way rather than the other way if I am asked. So, he said, “Things are happening on the ground.
