He said no one qualifies to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2020 election to retain power adding that giving Bawumia the opportunity will help the party.

In an interview on 21 Minutes with KKB, Bentil said "On my own assessment, I believe presently, if you look across the political scene the best person to take over after President Nana Addo will be Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia."

Bentil believes Bawumia will have it easy replacing Nana Addo when he retires.
