Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia's recent position at number 10 on the ballot for the New Patriotic Party ballot ahead of the upcoming Super Delegates Conference can be been as a reflection of his campaign messaging and significant status in the NPP flagbearership race.

Using a compelling football analogy to promote his candidacy, Dr. Bawumia likened himself to the best player among the NPP flagbearer hopefuls, emphasizing his ability to score crucial goals for the party. Little did he know that his analogy would come to fruition during the electoral process.

In football, the number 10 position holds special significance, often reserved for iconic players who play an indispensable role in their teams' success. In this case, the number 10 position was not deliberately reserved but was determined through a ballot, making Dr. Bawumia's placement even more remarkable.

Dr. Bawumia is considered the frontrunner in the NPP flagbearership race due to his popularity among party members and his significant contributions to the party over the years. He has been likened to a number 10 in football – a trusted, reliable, and inspiring playmaker who coordinates various government programmes, defends the party, and exposes the opposition.

Throughout challenging times, Dr. Bawumia has stood with the NPP, defending the party and government through public lectures and campaigns. He has been a driving force in projecting the party's achievements and leading it to electoral victories.

The divine placement of Dr. Bawumia at number 10 on the ballot is seen as more than a coincidence; I believe it reflects a higher design. His campaign as the NPP's number 10, capable of leading the party to victory, aligns perfectly with his position on the ballot.

Drawing parallels to football legends like Pele, Maradona, Zidane, Ronaldinho, Messi, and Abedi Ayew, who have been synonymous with the iconic number 10 jersey and led their teams to crucial victories, Dr. Bawumia can be seen as the Messi of the NPP – a star who embodies hope and is expected to play a significant role in breaking the 8-year electoral jinx for the party.

As the NPP's Super Delegates Conference approaches, Dr. Bawumia's divine placement on the ballot adds symbolic weight to his campaign and resonates with party members who see him as the best choice to lead the NPP to victory in 2024.
