A leading member of the Movement for Change Party, Yaw Buaben Asamoah, has expressed concerns over President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo potentially handing over power to Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

Yaw Buabeng Asamoah argued that such a transition would be tantamount to transferring power to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

He asserted that Dr. Bawumia, despite his prominent role within the New Patriotic Party (NPP), maintains deep connections to both the NDC and the People's National Convention (PNC).

"Akufo-Addo has left the NPP party in the hands of an NDC and PNC man. Bawumia works side by side with NDC and PNC people within the NPP camp he claims to belong to," he told Nana Yaa Brefo, co-hosted by Isaac Ekow JB on Yen Nsempa on Onua FM during an interview.

He elaborated that Dr. Bawumia's affiliations stem from his family background, noting that the Second Lady, Samira Bawumia, comes from a family with strong PNC ties. "The Second Lady is a PNC member; she, her father, and all her family members are part of the PNC. Dr. Bawumia's political grooming began within the NDC, influenced by his father, who was a staunch NDC member," Asamoah claimed.

Asamoah suggested that Dr. Bawumia's introduction to the NPP was primarily due to his economic expertise. "President Akufo-Addo believed that Bawumia’s background could significantly contribute to transforming Ghana’s economy," he stressed.

He indicated that it was a strategic decision by President Akufo-Addo to leverage his economic skills, potentially overlooking his political heritage. "When did you hear of him until Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo registered him under NPP and presented him as his Vice?" Asamoah asked, suggesting that Bawumia’s rise within the NPP was a calculated move to utilize his economic expertise.
