Akufo-Addo must step down to help the NPP have a higher vote in the next election, Ben Ephson.
The Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch Newspaper and decorated election analyst Mr. Benjamin Emmanuel Ephson has stated on Angel FM in Accra stated that the president and his NPP can avoid an implosion if President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo resigns on health grounds for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
He explained that the Ashantis will not vote if Bawumia is to win the primaries, likewise, if Alan Kyeremanten wins, the people of the North will not vote.
He was heard saying;
“There is the only one possibility for consensus-building on a decision on who replaces Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. The President has to step down on health reasons for Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to be sworn in as a President. Then Bawumia will pick Alan Kyeremanten as his Vice. I think Alan Kyeremanten will then support Bawumia during the party’s primaries… Ashantis will not vote if Bawumia wins the primaries. Also, if Kyeremanten wins, the people of the North will also not vote. They will trigger the perception that NPP uses the North and dump them like they did to Alhaji Aliu Mahama”
