It appears Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia is preparing a literal war chest as a fully armed member of his private militia group sends Ghanaian social media into a frenzy.
The middle-aged thug whose identity is currently unknown was surreptitiously photographed in a coded location with a fully armed 9 mm Glock 48 strapped casually to his hips cowboy-styled.
He was wearing a customised T-shirt inscribed with “Movement for Bawumia for President 2024”.
Apparently, this is the key movement for Dr. Bawumia as he aggressively prepares to be selected by President Akufo Addo as his successor to lead the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) as its presidential candidate for the 2024 Presidential Election.
The arming of his frontline supporters has been seen by political watchers as the anticipated violent confrontation that may characterise the NPP’s quest to select its presidential candidate after the incumbent President Akufo Addo had served his two terms.
Already, several contenders are reportedly lacing their boots to give Bawumia a good run for his money. Some of the names that have popped up include the current Minister of Trade, Alan Kwado Kyeremanteng who has been President Akufo Addo’s biggest rival to the NPP presidential ticket.
The Former Attorney General, Joe Ghartey, former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko and former Member of Parliament for Ashanti Mampong Francis Addai Nimo are names believed to be the frontliners.
Insiders tell Whatsup News how President Akufo Addo intends to extend his hegemony in the ruling party perpetually by handpicking his lieutenant Dr. Bawumia to serve as a puppet president after the 77-year-old Akufo Addo had served his term.
However, the most powerful ethnic bloc within the ruling party – The “John Kufour or Ashanti bloc” is reported to be determined to make sure this does not happen, particularly because of the way that camp had been virtually rendered impotent by the Akufo Addo camp which is predominated by the infamous Akyem ethnic bloc.
“The race will be ugly,” an insider tells Whatsup News.

I Am Angry, I Am Sad, I Am Pissed – Sam George Weeps Bitterly As He shares His Sad Story
Yesterday evening around 8pm, I got a call and messages from an Assemblyman in my Constituency whilst I was at church that his 12 year old son had been rushed to the Battor Catholic hospital in the morning. The situation had been deteriorating and a decision was made early afternoon to transfer the child to Accra.
Calls were made to Korle Bu Teaching Hospital but they refused to accept the child that there was no bed. Calls were made to 37 Military Hospital and they agreed to take the child. This was about 3pm. Then the next hurdle began. The National Ambulance Service was called to transport the child. Getting the Service was another issue entirely. After getting the service, they insisted that they cannot move the child until they got their own independent confirmation from 37 Military Hospital. For well over 5 hours, they could not get anyone from 37 to confirm.
It was at this point the Assemblyman in desperation called me. I quickly reached out to my Colleague and Brother Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa who is the MP for the area to see if he could intervene with the Battor Clinic. He immediately called Dr. Atuguba who is the Head of the facility and put me in touch with him. It became clear quickly that Battor had done all they could and it was in the hands of 37 Military Hospital.
Hon. Ablakwa again called a Constituent of his who is a doctor at 37 to see if he could help us. At this point we had finally gotten an ambulance on standby to convey the child. By the time we got a Doctor at 37 to get involved and give the all clear to the ambulance service, the little boy blacked out and could not be resuscitated. He died at 10:05pm.
Why it would have to take 2 MPs to find a bed for a dying child who needed critical medical care has deprived me of sleep. Why we have ambulances that cannot move because there is no system in place to let them know where to go anger me. Why we have a world-class facility like the University of Ghana Medical Centre with so many empty beds rotting away beats my understanding.
Yet another needless death. Should you know a big man somewhere for you to get the basic necessities? This death has really pained me. It has left me bitter at the system. It has left me angry at the #FixYourself folks. How could the Assemblyman or his 12 year old fix this issue?
The Republic is indeed very sick and needs to be fixed. How much longer can we go on like this. May the soul of this little child whose only crime is to be born Ghanaian rest in the bossom of the LORD.
Reasons Why Sammy Gyamfi Ignored NPP To Join NDC Finally Revealed – Full Details
He was born on March 28, 1989. Sammy is from Sunyani in Ghana’s Bono Region, but he has spent almost his entire life in Kumasi.
He attended Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), where he was very active in politics.
Sammy was always around members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at KNUST’s Unity hall until he experienced discrimination and intolerance from members of the TESCON group. As a result, he found the NPP unappealing.
He then became a member of the NDC tertiary group TEIN. Sammy won the hearts of several TEIN-NDC KNUST members due to his outspokenness, intelligence, and in-depth political knowledge. He was highly hailed by all.
Sammy Gyamfi rose to become the President of TEIN-NDC KNUST between 2011-2012. His name was known throughout the Ashanti region, prompting the then-Mayor of Kumasi, Mr. Kojo Bonsu, to appoint him as the spokesperson and public relations officer for the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) between 2012-2016.
