Following the NPP presidential primaries, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, obtained 61.43% of the total votes that were validly submitted, earning him the position of flagbearer for the party in the 2024 election.

With 37.41%, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong, the Assin Central Member of Parliament, came out second. As promised, Ken Agyapong made it challenging for Bawumia to win by a greater margin than was expected.

With 0.75%, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto took third place, and Francis Addai Nimoh finished last with 0.41%.

After the election, Ken Agyapong acknowledged that the results were what he had always hoped to see—a fair election. As such, he accepted the results with sincerity. He then declared that he would support, with relentless efforts, breaking the eight.

According to Franklin Cudjoe, the Founding President of IMANI Africa, it is doubtful that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will win the 2024 general elections given that he earned 61.47 percent of the vote in the NPP presidential primary.

His justification is that no candidate has ever won the main election if they received less than 64% of the vote in the internal primaries. Instead, every winner of the general election did so after receiving more than 64% of the votes cast in the internal party elections.
