The Chief Scribe of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP), John Boadu, has debunked claims that his party planned a ‘hero’ welcome for Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in Kumasi during their annual national delegates’ conference over the weekend.
The popularity and charisma of Bawumia within the NPP came to the fore when his presence was announced during the conference.
Some political pundits said that is a strong signal about his popularity ahead of their upcoming NPP flagbearership contest.
Others claimed the party deliberated planned the ‘gargantuan’ cheers for him as their “preferred” candidate to take over from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
But John Boadu in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show said the claims are “untrue”.
According to him, “nothing was orchestrated during the conference to favour Dr Bawumia”.
