Ghana’s Vice President and Flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP)

The Vice President and Flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has framed various characteristics, he believes Ghana’s next leader should have, to assist with taking the country to a new level.

The VP was speaking at the NPP International Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday March 23, when he made these comments.

Ghana needs a visionary leader with a demonstrated history and validity, to tackle generational issues, pronouncing that he has shown to be a problem solver through strategies he has initiated as the country’s VP.

“Ghana needs problem solvers, generational thinkers and people with innovative ideas, Dr. Bawumia stated.

“I am a problem solver, and a generational thinker with innovative ideas. I have a solid track record as Vice-President to prove it,’ he added.

Buttressing his effective contributions as VP, Dr. Bawumia referred to various policy initiatives he has led, which he said, are resolving generational problems of the country.

Among those he listed included,

• The digital national identity system to solve the generational problem of lack of national identity and exclusion.

• The digital national property address system, to address the problem of lack of property identity.

• Mobile money interoperability to resolve the issue of financial exclusion and promote a cashless society.

• Digitalisation of public services to promote efficiency and reduce corruption.

• Delivery of essential drugs to remote areas through drones, as well as other policies, including One Ambulance One Constituency and Agenda 111 hospitals.

“I have not been President before, but through my role as Vice President, I have demonstrated that I will be a hard-working President who will work very hard to address problems confronting our sustainable development.”

Drawing comparisons between himself and his main competitor, John Mahama, Dr. Bawumia stated unequivocally that, considering his “track record, work ethics and vision,” he is a better candidate than Mahama, whom he said, has already been rejected twice due to his poor performance when he got the chance to be President.

“Former President Mahama has been Presidemt before but what was his track record? He failed. He failed to tackle corruption and many problems. Economically, if you look at all the economic data in the 4th Republic, Mahama has been the worst President.”

“John Mahama doesn’t represent change because he was there as President and he has been rejected twice in 2016 and 2020. I have not been President before and my record as Vice President is there for all to see. John Mahama represents the past and I represent the next chapter and future of our country.”
