OMG! Ursula Owusu Clashes With Chief Of Staff At Jubilee House Over Bawumia's Presidential Bid - Details Inside
In a race that has captivated the attention of political observers, two prominent female figures within the Akufo-Addo administration are reportedly locked in fierce contention for the role of a female running mate with Akan heritage to partner Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.
Communication Minister Ursula Owusu-Ekuful and Chief of Staff Frema Osei Opare are said to be the frontrunners in this competition, both vying to secure the coveted position as the potential running mate. Insider reports suggest that Ursula Owusu-Ekuful is leaving no stone unturned in her efforts to clinch the role, demonstrating her determination to surpass her male competitors.
Not to be outdone, Chief of Staff Frema Osei Opare is actively lobbying for the role as well. Having made history as the first female Chief of Staff, Opare has thrown her support behind the Mahamudu Bawumia campaign while also covertly working to position herself as the prime candidate for the vice-presidential nominee slot.
The dynamic within the Vice President's camp indicates that discussions surrounding the potential running mate have yet to reach a serious stage. The focus currently remains on the upcoming Superdelegates conference scheduled for August 26th and the crucial Congress on November 4th, where the flagbearership will be determined.
Critics of Chief of Staff Frema Osei Opare have raised questions about her effectiveness in the role, suggesting that it might be time for her to retire alongside President Akufo-Addo. However, her supporters highlight her background hailing from the Ashanti Region and her proven ability to raise funds in support of Bawumia's bid.
As the competition between Ursula Owusu-Ekuful and Frema Osei Opare intensifies, the spotlight remains fixed on the unfolding political drama. The eventual choice of the female running mate from Akan extraction could potentially play a decisive role in shaping the future of the Akufo-Addo administration, making it an essential narrative to follow as the November 4th congress draws nearer.
