Suspended member of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has said Energy Minister designate Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh will be a perfect match for Dr. Bawumia ahead of the 2024 elections.
In his submission on Ekosiisen on Asempa FM, the social commentator said NAPO has the potential to assist Vice-President Bawumia in his political career.
According to Uncle Allotey, Dr Opoku-Prempeh delivered on his mandate when given the nod as the Education Minister in Akufo-Addo’s first term in office making the Education Ministry an enviable one.
He is of the greatest conviction that the two can give the New Patriotic Party (NPP) a resounding victory should they be given the green light to lead the party.
“I can see a potential in the two of them. Sit down and do a critical analysis of the two. But that is not what we are doing in Ghana now. We are doing fanatic politics in Ghana. We are not sitting down to critically analyze that this individual is he fit for purpose.
“We are having some kind of new political phenomena in our political arena. I’ve told the NDC that if they do not have somebody of Bawumia’s level they should forget it. If the NPP also does not field Bawumia in 2024, they will lose the elections. But if they bring Bawumia and they get the Ashanti factor to back him…I’ve been watching NAPO and his style of politics and his handling of the Free SHS at the Ministry, the guy is a running mate material and the future Vice President”.
“As a politician, I will wish Bawumia is made the flagbearer of the NPP because he’s now the kid on the block. All of a sudden from 2008… We had more of him in 2015/2016, then 2018 to 2020 he was a different person all together. He is somebody you should wat ch.”
