Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is expected to make known his intention to take part in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Primaries on November 4th.

He is said to have met with the Majority Caucus on Tuesday, May 2, to announce his decision to lead the NPP into next year’s elections.

Though he has hinted at succeeding Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as NPP leader, Dr Bawumia is yet to make this official.

He is, however, reported to have met some key groups as he readies to make the much-anticipated official announcement.

The Majority Caucus is said to have been happy and grateful for the “show of respect” in consulting members before that official announcement.

Majority Chief Whip Frank Annoh-Dompreh expressed gratitude to the Vice President on behalf of the Caucus.

The NPP Primaries are expected to be highly contested, with some Majority MPs running.

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency, has declared that he will pick forms when nominations open.

Former MPs Francis Addai-Nimoh and Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto have also served notice to contest the primaries.

Former ministers Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen and Boakye Agyarko have also announced their bids.

Former Presidential Spokesperson Kwabena Agyei Agyepong is also in the race.
