Kwaku Yeboah is impressed by the performance of Kennedy Agyapong in the polls which saw Bawumia emerge victorious as the presidential candidate of the NPP.

A lightweight like Ken, being prevailed upon to abandon his ill-conceived Presidential aspirations; by who? It is crystal clear that the peace loving and respectful Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, is the nightmare of the warmonger-cum-disrespectful and arrogant Ken Agyapong. The brighter way forward is to vote massively for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Saturday, November 4th, 2023, to avoid any uncertain future for our country. According to Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, “it is possible for the NPP to win the December 7th, 2024 Presidential election”, and subsequently retire John Mahama from the political scene. If Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is too decent to descend into the gutter with Ken Agyapong, some admirers and supporters of Dr. Bawumia who are streetwise, will not only match Ken Agyapong boot-for-boot, but prove to be streets ahead of him.
