Meanwhile, Dr. Bawumia in the forthcoming NPP flagbearership race is gradually gaining momentum as about 80 NPP Members of Parliament have declared their support for his candidature.
Ben Ephson speaking in an interview with Onua TV has insisted the Vice President stands tall among his competitors in the NPP and his candidature will enable the party secure an immense victory with ease.

“If Bawumia is made the flagbearer of NPP he comes with two main advantages; that is many Christians feel comfortable with him even though he is a Muslim and Muslims who used to vote for the NCC would switch and vote for NPP.
“The Muslims have now noticed that the NDC has taken them for granted for far too long because they don’t take Muslims for even running mate,” he asserted.
The pollster reiterated that Muslims were voting for the NDC because of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings but he being no more is making it difficult for the party to increase their votes in the North.
