I Haven’t Endorsed Bawumia Nor Any Other NPP Flagbearer Aspirant – Ex-President, Kufour

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia is not John Agyekum Kufour’s choice to lead the NPP in 2024, according to the former president, John Agyekum Kufour.

Per a report by, for the upcoming party primaries, he has not endorsed anyone to become flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party.

John Kufour asserts inaccurate media accounts of his support for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia at the Peduase Valley Resort Father’s Day luncheon.

The former president clarified that his comments about Dr. Bawumia are not recommendations.

Speaking at a celebration for father’s day over the weekend in the Eastern Region, Kufuor claimed that Bawumia has grown to resemble a son to him ever since he entered politics.

The former president said he was not being political when he called the vice president “a loyal son.”

“In the upcoming NPP Flagbearership race, in order to achieve party unity and sustain it thereafter for victory of the party in the 2024 elections, what President Kufuor expects from the party and political hierarchies are fair and un-engineered systems and processes that would lead to a fair selection of our next NPP flagbearer.

“This should be devoid of coercion and machinations so that the eventual selected nominee, coming out of the uncompromised freewill of the voting delegates, can easily command the support and respect of all party faithfuls, and indeed, other Ghanaians sympathetic to our cause towards ‘breaking the eight’,” the statement clarifying issues stated.

“Let me single out one person; he is also a father, but I can claim that he happens to be my son too, and that’s the Vice-President sitting right by me,” the 83-year-old said. “In your narration, you said when the planners decided to invite the Vice-President, you learnt he had gone to the North for some duties, and you even doubted whether he would manage to come.”

“But you phoned him, and with his signature giggling, he said ‘if it’s JA Kufuor, I’m coming’. That’s so touching, very touching, but probably that’s how a son should behave towards a father. Sheer coincidence, but you may not know that I started being a father in 1963, and that happened to be the year the Vice-President was born.
