It is possible to break the 8 with me – Bawumia hints

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has given the clearest hint yet that he is lacing his boots to contest the flagbearership slot for election 2024

“I believe that God has a destiny for Ghana. I believe that God will get Ghana to the promise land. With God, it is possible! With God, it is possible! With God, it is possible!” Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia at Christ Apostolic Church on 26 March 2023 held at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC).

Barely 24 hours after the ruling New Patriotic Party’s (NPP’s) National Council announced the timelines for the Party’s upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary primaries, Vice President of the Republic, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has given the clearest hint yet that he is lacing his boots to contest the flagbearership slot for 2024 general elections.

In a post on his verified Facebook page, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, gave the clearest hint yet of his intentions to contest for the flagbearership of the New Patriotic Party for 2024.

And, he did so by drawing a link between what seems to be his presidential ambition with a Biblical verse, Matthew 19:26.

Dr Bawumia posted a picture which had the Ghana flag to the left and the NPP’s red, white and blue flag to the right with the inscription “It Is Possible” at the top of the two flags.

The post within one hour after it surfaced on his Facebook wall, went viral, drawing comments from some of the over 900,000 followers of the Vice President on Facebook.


One of the Vice President’s followers, Samuel Twum Essien, wrote; “Yes indeed it is always possible. It is always possible you will be our next leader. It is always possible you will be our next president.

“It is always possible Ghana will go higher and higher under your government. Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia the man I truly love from the whole bottom of my heart”.

Albert Asante, on the hand said; “God bless our homeland Ghana. It is indeed possible #DMB2024”.

Ama Utah, in response to the post also said “our future is about to be bright. In DMB we trust!!! #BestToLead #NextToLead #DMB2024.

Boakye Prince, said “May Dr. Bawumia be protected by Allah to break the 8 and George Emil on his part said; “Definitely Possible. #DMB is a Ghana Project#.

In Matthew 19:26, Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible. But with God all things are possible.”

No party in Ghana’s history has managed to win a third successive presidential election. That is the big challenge the NPP faces on December 7, 2024. And, the message from the Vice President to his party members appears to be that it is possible to “break the 8”.

It is a message of hope that also seems to suggest that “With me Dr Bawumia as your candidate, we can do what has never been done before and win a third successive contest.”
