NPP has more Christians than Muslims, yet I was chosen to lead the party – Bawumia

The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has acknowledged the pivotal role played by Christian members in electing him as the party’s first Muslim flagbearer.

Speaking at the IFTAR event at the Suhum Ayekotse Central Mosque, Dr. Bawumia reflected on his journey within the NPP, highlighting the significance of overcoming initial doubts about a Muslim leading the party.

He attributed his success to divine intervention and the overwhelming support he received from Christian members, emphasizing that Christians outnumber Muslims within the party.

Dr. Bawumia pledged to bring the Qur’an to Ghana’s seat of government, the Jubilee House, if elected as President, expressing his aspirations for a potential eight-year tenure.

He contrasted his ambitions with former President Mahama’s four-year presidency, urging for patience and peaceful proceedings in the upcoming election.

In a contrasting viewpoint, independent presidential aspirant Alan Kyerematen advocated for the election of a Christian leader in Ghana’s predominantly Christian nation.

Speaking at the Church of Pentecost’s Easter Sunday Convention, Kyerematen appealed to the congregation to support him as a candidate capable of embodying Christian values and transforming the nation.

“During the presidential primary, they said a Muslim cannot lead the NPP. But by the grace of God after voting out of the 10 candidates I secured an unprecedented 61% which signifies the hand of God in the victory because when you look at NPP, Christians are more than Muslims in the party so it means it is the Christians who elected Dr Bawumia a Muslim as flagbearer for the NPP for the first time it has not happened before “said Dr. Bawumia.

“After December 7th I will take the Qur’an and pray and take it to the Jubilee house. It is Possible

“Mahama has only four years but I will have eight years. Do we want four years or eight years? that is why I want him to be patient so that I take the vehicle and drive. Now I am mate”.

“So we are going into election everything must be peaceful. I am contesting this election with my Brother the former President Mahama [Flagbearer of NDC] who has been President before reason I have been telling him to stay back so that I also clinch the presidency because I have not been President before. we know what he did he should also give me a chance to be President to also exhibit what I can do”.

“As a predominantly Christian nation, as Christians, it is our responsibility that we elect a Christian leader who is also a Christlike leader.”
