Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has stated that, despite not having previously served as president, he has made significant contributions to Ghana’s progress via the Akufo-Addo administration.
Last Saturday, Dr. Bawumia told stakeholders of the ruling New Patriotic Party in Donkorkrom, Afram Plains North constituency, “I am constantly motivated by public service, not to strive for personal gains.”
“That is why I am dedicating myself, first to being voted flag bearer of our party, and subsequently to the citizens of Ghana, to ensure that I continue to make a difference to our country’s growth,” Dr. Bawumia explained.
Dr. Bawumia stated that, as vice president, he had accomplished a lot for Ghana.
While serving as vice president, Dr. Bawumia remarked, “I haven’t been president, but I laboured diligently and made a major contribution to the progression of the nation through key policies I came up with and carried out.”
One Constituency-One Ambulance, the Agenda 111 hospital, the Digital Addressing System, the digitisation of the ports, passport offices, and the DVLA, as well as the creation of the Ghana.gov payment platform, the deployment of the money interoperability system, and the e-Pharmacy platform, are a few of these policies.
In the flag bearer competition, Dr. Bawumia is competing against nine other contenders.
In order to reduce the total number of candidates to five before the party’s main primaries on November 4, 2023, the NPP will convene a super delegates meeting on August 26, 2023.
