Bagbin’s remark about Mahama, Bawumia wasn’t a prediction for 2024 polls – Parliament

Parliament has clarified that the Speaker’s reference to former President John Dramani Mahama and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia during his visit to Yagbonwura in Damongo was not a prediction of the 2024 polls.

“We wish to place on record that although the speaker made reference to the two politicians at the said event, it was not an exercise of prediction,” a statement issued by the Media Relations Department of the Public Affairs Subdivision of Parliament said.

Speaker of Parliament, Kingsford Alban Sumana Bagbin was said to have predicted that the 2024 elections will be between Mr Mahama and Dr Bawumia and that it will be the first time in the history of the Fourth Republic that both major parties in Ghana will have candidates hailing from the northern part of Ghana.

But Parliament said Mr Bagbin instead urged the people of the North to be excited that they will be well represented in the political arena.
