Give me 8 years, I will be accountable to you – Bawumia tells Ghanaians


The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has pledged to offer greater accountability to Ghanaians compared to his chief rival, former President John Mahama, should he win the presidential election on December 7.

Dr. Bawumia emphasized that his commitment to accountability stems from his intention to seek re-election after his first term.

Speaking to professional bodies in Kumasi during his three-day tour of the Ashanti Region, the Vice President contended that Mr. Mahama, on the other hand, would lack the same level of accountability as he would not be pursuing re-election.

“I also believe that if you make me a president, I will be more accountable to you because I will be looking for an 8-year term. An 8-year term means that you are first going to give me a 4-year term, this means I have to work very hard to justify why you have to give me another four years.

“And so I will be more accountable. I will come back to you and say this is what I have been able to do and then you can you will renew my license and I will drive the vehicle so we go forward.

“I believe that my main opponent is only looking for a four-year term, that means immediately you give it to him and he goes on his honeymoon and he comes back you will not see him again. there will be no accountability but for me, you will get accountability.”

The Vice President also revealed that the Ministry of Finance is preparing to reimburse clients of companies that were liquidated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) during the financial clean-up exercise.

Dr. Bawumia stated that this initiative aims to provide relief to affected investors while ensuring transparency and accountability in the financial market.

“It looks like the Minister of Finance is looking forward to making some payment to customers of the liquidated companies.”

“In the case of Gold Coast Securities and others, it is something on our agenda and I believe that the Ministry of Finance will look at it. We have engaged affected customers and we look forward to the payment”.
