Bawumia’s Volta campaign tour needless – NDC

The National Democratic Congress (NDC), has criticized Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia and his bid for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer position in the upcoming December 7 general elections.

They described his recent visit to the Volta Region as a “waste of time and resources.”

According to the NDC, Dr. Bawumia’s visit was viewed as a farewell tour, signaling his imminent departure from the political arena. James Gunu, the NDC Volta Regional Secretary, reiterated this sentiment in a statement released on Thursday, May 30, 2024.

Gunu stated, “We are also not surprised that Dr. Bawumia miserably lost the NPP’s flagbearer contest to Ken Agyepong in the Volta Region. Voltarians, whether NDC or NPP, naturally prefer honest, truthful, and trustworthy people.”

Highlighting the disparity between Dr. Bawumia’s reception and the overwhelming support former President John Dramani Mahama received from Voltarians during the NDC presidential primaries, Gunu attributed this to the perceived neglect of the Volta Region by the Nana Akufo-Addo and Bawumia-led government.

Furthermore, the NDC demanded the payment of $126 million cedi equivalent, which they allege is owed to Volta Region constituencies as part of the “One Million Dollar Per Constituency” promise made over the past seven years.

Gunu also criticized the government’s failure to fulfill its promise of building model schools in all Zongo communities, labeling it “a big deception.”
