Joyce Bawa Mogtari, an aide to former President John Dramani Mahama has taken a swipe at Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia over his vow to give the party a "showdown" in the 2024 elections if he becomes the NPP's presidential candidate.

In a tweet on Monday, September 11, she described Bawumia's threat as laughable given his inability to restore Ghana's economic woes as head of the Economic Management Team.

"Did we hear the infamous jocular guy promising the NDC a showdown? Ah! you who has failed to show yourself 'down' or up as VP, failed to give the failed economy a showdown, failed to give Ken Ofori Atta a showdown on the EMT. That strange guffaw mistaken for laughter is telling!" she posted.

Her comments come after Dr. Bawumia vowed to give the opposition party a "showdown" if chosen as the NPP's 2024 presidential flagbearer.

He said the NDC knew he had a competitive advantage over it, particularly in its strongholds, including the Zongo communities and the Volta Region, which is why the party was scared he would emerge as the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Speaking to party loyalists in the Oti Region on Saturday, the Veep noted, “People in the Zongo communities say they doubt that the NPP will ever make Dr. Bawumia the flagbearer for the upcoming 2024 general elections. However, if they do bring Bawumia, we will vote massively for him. Thus, the NDC will lose massively in their two strongholds, the North and the Zongo communities, should Bawumia emerge as flagbearer.”

The aspiring NPP flagbearer noted, “I will also win more votes for the NPP in the Volta Region. Therefore, I will shake all their strongholds. That is why they (NDC) do not want Dr. Bawumia to emerge as the flagbearer. Because they know that as flagbearer, I will give them a showdown in their strongholds.”
