2024 elections: We’re looking at someone who hasn’t been president before and one who has been – NPP’s Amoakwa-Boadu

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia (Left) is flagbearer of the NPP while John Dramani Mahama is for the NDC

A member of the communications team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who is also a private legal practitioner, Kinglsey Amoakwa-Boadu, has stated that the 2024 election is between a person who has never been President before and another who has.

He explained that the flagbearer of the NPP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is yet to become president whilst the flagbearer of the NDC, is former President John Dramani Mahama.

He says Dr Bawumia will have 8 years to develop Ghana if he wins the elections, but Mr Mahama will have only four years.

Out of the two, he said, Dr Bawumia is best placed to win the elections.

“We are looking at someone who has not been there before and his vision as against someone who has been before and has for four years.

“The contest is about the future,” he said on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday, May 4 while responding to a comment by the National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi who has accused Dr Bawumia and President Akufo-Addo of engaging in corruption and coverup for corrupt officials.

The discussions centered on the Office of the Attorney-General’s advice to the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) not to initiate any move to investigate money laundering in the dealings of the former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah.

Upon a request for advice by EOCO on the matter, the Attorney-General’s office, in a letter dated April 25, 2024, and copied to EOCO, said it found that the OSP did not submit the report on its collaborative investigation to EOCO.

Additionally, the office noted the OSP has not responded to EOCO’s request for its findings.

According to the Attorney-General’s office, the docket presented to EOCO only contains the OSP’s letter transmitting the docket, the diary of action, statements taken during the investigation, and letters written by the OSP to other institutions like the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and banks for inquiries.
