As the New Patriotic Party (NPP) prepares for the election of its flagbearer ahead of the 2024 general elections, the men are gradually being separated from the boys.
So far, five stalwarts of the NPP have made public their intentions to lead the party.
Some names tipped to run for the NPP flagbearer position when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s tenure ends include Vice President Dr. Bawumia and Minister for Trade and Industry Alan Kyerematen.
Others include the Minister of Agriculture Dr. Afriyie Akoto, former Energy Minister Boakye Kyerematen Agyarko, and former Railway Development Minister Joe Ghartey.
A presidential hopeful of the party, John Alan Kyeremanten earlier said it is his time to lead the party to victory in the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.
Alan Kyerematen stated that he made sacrifices in the past for a contender, hence must be paid in the same vein.
