Barring any unforeseen changes, Dr. Bawumia is expected to submit before the party National Council the name of the energy minister as his nominee to become the Vice Presidential Candidate of the NPP for the 2024 election.

As part of the tour of the Ashanti Region, final consultations and briefing about the choice of Napo will be laid before key opinion leaders and influencers of the region including Chiefs, key queen mothers and party elders in a series of close door meetings arranged for the NPP flagbearer, this portal was told.

There are however grave concerns by some party insiders against the nomination of the Manhyia Royal as Running Mate, concerns which are yet to resolved or addressed.

His critics, some of whom hail from his home region of Ashanti say they cannot work seamlessly with Manhyia lawmaker as he is “polarizing and domineering”, a trait they claim is unhealthy for the ticket.

He has also been accused of arrogance by some persons which has led to friction between him and some of his colleagues at the highest level.
