Diaspora NPP vice-presidential polls: Napo emerges as frontrunner

Out of the 620 responding overseas NPP sympathisers, executives and members overseas, Matthew Opoku Prempeh secured a commanding 263 votes – 42.42% of the total

The Diaspora Patriotic Forum (DPF), a crucial overseas-based think tank for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has conducted a comprehensive week-long opinion poll regarding the NPP’s 2024 vice-presidential candidature.

Pooling opinions of 621 participants using the secure tool Survey Monkey Polls, the results unveiled a significant preference for Matthew Opoku Prempeh (affectionately called “Napo”) as the favoured running mate to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

Prempeh secured a 42.42% commanding 263 votes from the 620 respondents, showcasing substantial support among NPP sympathisers, external NPP branch members and executives worldwide.

Following at some distance were Yaw Osei Adutwum (23.23%), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong (12.58%) and others, with 2.1% indicating a preference for none of the listed candidates.

The reasons given by respondents for their preferences shed light on their priorities. A significant 29.15% highlighted the need for a candidate who complements Dr Bawumia, adding value to the ticket through political experience and innovative ideas.

In addition, 21.34% emphasised the importance of the candidate’s ability to attract floating voters. Interestingly, religious and gender balance were not prominent factors among the diaspora NPP support base.

Preferred choice

Empirical evidence from the poll, coupled with in-depth conversations with external branch executives and members, strongly suggests that Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the current Minister of Energy and MP for Manhyia North, is the preferred NPP vice-presidential candidate in the diaspora.

The survey aligns with the Diaspora Patriotic Forum’s commitment to providing a platform for NPP members and sympathisers to voice their opinions on party affairs and matters of national development.

Although the ultimate decision rests with the NPP’s presidential candidate, Mahamudu Bawumia, the overwhelming support for Napo expressed by the diasporan NPP adds a significant dimension to the party’s considerations for the 2024 general election.
