Mahama has no chance against Bawumia in the 2024 elections – Nana Akomea

Nana Akomea, the Deputy Campaign Chairman for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has said that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer would triumph in the 2024 general elections.

I stand by my ‘incompetent Mahama’ comment – Bawumia

He said former President John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress would be rejected again by Ghanaians.

Nana Akomea contends that Mahama’s participation in the race is an advantage for the NPP rather than a threat, contrary to the perspective held by some in the NDC. He asserts that pound for pound, one-on-one, Dr. Bawumia is a superior candidate to Mahama.

“Our candidate Dr Bawumia pound for pound, one-on-one against John Mahama, we believe that he will be a better candidate. And we are also boasted by the simple fact that our main opponent, former President Mahama, is a tried entity. He’s not a new quantity. He is not a threat, but a strength to us, he failed when he was tried.


“I’m not the one saying it, his rejection at the polls in 2016 by the ultimate judges, the Ghanaian voter, shows that when he was tried, he didn’t perform to their expectations, and was rejected. He’s meeting Bawumia who has not been tried. Whatever you say or do, the simple fact is that you have two people vying for one position.

“One of them has been tried before in that position, he failed and was rejected. The other one has never been tried,” Nana Akomea asserted on Face to Face on Citi TV, hosted by Umaru Sanda Amadu.

Asked if he believes in the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t know, he stated, “It’s a cliché, it’s a saying. We believe that nobody is going to give the devil a chance. Once you know is the devil, nobody.”

“Former President Mahama has the longest first term of any President. And the results are there for every Ghanaian to see,” he said.

Nana Akomea rejected assertions that Mahama has more experience in politics than Bawumia.
