An organized group of fans called ‘Bawumia fan Club’ have promised to fund the GH₵50,000 fees for the Vice President of Ghana Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to pick his form when nominations are opened.

The club said, Dr. Bawumia is endowed with lots of good ideas that will help the development of the country and so it is necessary they support him to lead the party in the 2024 general elections as flagbearer and become president of the Republic.

According to them, the accumulation of the money was through the dues they pay as members nationwide.

Speaking to the National Chairman of the club, Mr. Twumasi Ankrah Eric, stated that the executives of the club nationwide came together to decide on the funding of the form.

“Undoubtedly, Dr. Bawumia can pay the fees by himself but we want to do that for him as a club dedicated to his honour” he added.

He pleaded with delegates of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) nationwide to vote for Dr Bawumia as the presidential candidate during the primaries.
