    Mahama has a free pass – Martin Kpebu says as he lists 26 ‘failed promises’ of Bawumia

    Renowned legal practitioner Martin Kpebu has asserted the outcome of the 2024 presidential election has already been determined due to the decision of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to make Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia their flagbearer.

    Speaking in an interview on TV3, Kpebu said that the presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President John Dramani Mahama, would win the election because there is no way Dr Bawumia can compete with him.

    According to him, Bawumia would be “no match for Mahama” because Ghanaians, who he said are not “fools”, now know that the vice president only came to lie to them.

    He then went on to list some of the supposed “failed promises” and “lies” told by the vice president.

    1. In 18 months of an NPP government, no community in Ghana would have water or toilet problems.
    2. Under an NPP Akufo-Addo government the economy would “grow and grow” and there would be “jobs and jobs and jobs”.
