I want to become President because I’ve worked so hard as a Vice President – Bawumia

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, in a fervent appeal to Ghanaians, has emphasized his extensive contributions as Vice President, asserting that his hard work qualifies him to be the nation’s next President.

Speaking at the Youth Connect event in the Ashanti Region, Dr. Bawumia confidently compared his achievements to those of his predecessors.

“The reason why I want to become President is that I’ve worked so hard as a Vice President. My work speaks for itself. If you compare the various Vice Presidents under the Fourth Republic, you can tell that my work rate stands out,” he declared to a charged crowd.

Dr. Bawumia highlighted his track record by challenging former Vice President and current presidential candidate John Mahama. “If you ask John Mahama to point out even one policy initiative he spearheaded as Vice President, he can’t point out. I have 33 policies I’ve spearheaded. So the score is 33-0. So please promote me to become president because I’ve passed as Vice President,” he said.

He further stressed the importance of accountability, noting his eight-year term compared to John Mahama’s potential four years.

Dr. Bawumia argued that he would be more accountable to the people, as he would still need their mandate in 2028.

“I stand to be more accountable for my actions since I will still need the people of Ghana when I seek their mandate in 2028. Therefore, it is best to vote for someone who will be accountable than someone who has asked for a honeymoon even though he has just four years to be president.”

The Vice President’s remarks come at a crucial time as the nation gears up for the upcoming elections.
