Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has opined on the flagbearer election of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) this weekend.
In his latest epistle, Martin Amidu argued that President Akufo-Addo is rooting for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to win the election to continue rule.
Martin Amidu believes that President Akufo-Addo has made the Vice President his preferred candidate because he wants to use him as a surrogate to serve a third term as president.
“Mahamudu Bawumia is a safe pair of hands to give Nana Akufo-Addo the third term in office he seeks using a surrogate. Whether Nana Akufo-Addo will succeed in actualizing his long game with Mahamudu Bawumia at the 2024 elections will unfold after his nomination on 4th November 2023. Nature’s justice will ultimately determine the final verdict,” Martin Amidu who formerly served as Attorney General said in his release.
Martin Amidu in his release said nature’s justice has been the only obstacle reminding President Nana Akufo-Addo and his family and friends that in all things, man may propose, but nature also disposes.
He said in spite of the razor-thin victory in the 2020 Presidential elections resulting from manipulations of the electoral and constitutional system, Nana Akufo-Addo has learned no lesson that man succeeds only when the variable of nature allows him.
Ahead of the NPP’s flagbearer election, Martin Amidu argues that although Assin Central MP Kennedy Ohene Agyapong may be a grassroots preference of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo cannot trust him sufficiently to hand over power to him in the agenda to break the 8.
According to him, this is why the President is behind Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to win the flagbearer election.
The flagbearer election of the NPP is slated on Saturday November 4, 2023.
