Francis Asenso-Boakye, Minister for Roads and Highways and Member of Parliament for Bantama, has declared that former President John Mahama is ill-prepared for the presidency following his recent remarks about needing a "honeymoon period" if elected in 2025, interpreting it as a sign of unpreparedness and a reluctance to address the nation's challenges immediately.

Speaking at a New Patriotic Party (NPP) gathering during the acclamation of Hon. Samuel Abu Jinapor as parliamentary candidate for the Damongo in the Savanna region, Asenso-Boakye emphasized the need for Ghanaians to elect Vice President Dr. Bawumia, the NPP's presidential candidate for the December election, citing his readiness and active engagement in governance.

"Former President John Mahama's statement regarding needing a honeymoon period indicates his lack of preparedness for the job," Asenso-Boakye asserted. "We cannot entrust our nation to someone who seeks to delay action while leadership is urgently needed."
In contrast, Asenso-Boakye praised Dr Bawumia's readiness, stating, "Dr Bawumia will hit the ground running from day one, addressing the challenges facing our nation with his bold solutions."

Expressing optimism in the NPP's track record of development, Asenso-Boakye urged Ghanaians to reward the party's hard work by supporting its candidates.
He also commended Samuel Abu Jinapor, the Damongo MP, as a diligent young leader dedicated to the progress of his constituents, urging voters to rally behind him in the 2024 elections for continued development in the region.

The event featured speeches from prominent NPP officials including Hon. Stephen Asamoah Boateng, Minister for Chieftaincy and Culture; Fatimatu Abubakar, Information Minister designate; General Secretary of the party, Justin Frimpong Koduah, and various dignitaries.
