Artist manager and entertainment critic, Mr. Logic, has expressed his concerns about the upcoming 2024 elections, suggesting that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) may refuse to accept the results if the New Patriotic Party (NPP) secures a third consecutive term.
Mr. Logic elaborated on his apprehensions, explaining that while he has immense respect for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, he would have preferred Kennedy Agyapong as the NPP’s chosen flag bearer. He believes that a personality like Agyapong, known for his no-nonsense approach, would be better equipped to lead the party in the fierce political battle ahead.
Speaking as a panelist on UTV’s United Showbiz, Mr. Logic referred to the upcoming elections as a “takashie,” emphasizing the need for a candidate who can match the NDC’s resilience and tactics. He is concerned that if the NPP wins and breaks the eight-year cycle, the NDC might not gracefully accept defeat.
Mr. Logic highlighted that former President Mahama, the NDC’s presidential candidate, is a formidable opponent, and the NDC is known for its strong opposition. In his view, Kennedy Agyapong is best suited to handle the tough political climate.
Dr. Bawumia was elected as the NPP’s flag bearer, receiving 61.43% of the votes from nearly 200,000 NPP delegates nationwide in the recent elections held on Saturday, November 3. Despite the victory, Agyapong’s strong performance was noteworthy, securing the second position with 37.41% of the votes.
Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto came third with 0.76%, and Francis Addai Nimoh was last with 0.41%.
