Dr Etse Sikanku – Bawumia’s 2024 candidature can Subject 8-year cycle .



Addressing Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the 2024 elections as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer gives it a realistic chance to break the eight terms cycle, communications expert and lecturer at Ghana Institute of Journalism, Dr Etse Sikanku postulated.

“Although in the course of the first four years under the Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration he (Dr Bawumia) lost a bit of lustre unlike the period when he was speaking at public lectures, if his team handles him very well, he will give the National Democratic Congress (NDC) a good run.

“He may also have immense challenges with cross-over appeal, especially with some who maintain any myth or any last remaining amount of goodwill or political capital from his lecture series days has been completely dissipated and he does have to fight off many tags that have taken root.

“There will also be the incumbency fatigue playing out and if the NDC puts out a glittering and hard to gloss over candidate then the NPP will be going in as the under-dogs however, with Dr Bawumia, there will be a realistic chance and it will be nothing but game on hand.
