Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has called on Ghanaians to massively reject the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, in the upcoming general elections.
Speaking at the commissioning of a Nursing Training College at Nkanchina in the Kpandai District of the Northern Region, Bawumia said the former president is woefully incompetent to be the president of Ghana again.
The vice president further stated that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s first term in office outclassed the performance of Mahama and the NDC administration who was in charge of running the affairs of the country for eight years.
“Akufo-Addo has proven his supremacy over Mahama because of the jobs he has done. He will always lose in any contest with Akufo-Addo,” Bawumia said.
“Akufo-Addo has a vision for this country and I would urge you to vote for him to do more for you. The records speak for themselves and I am sure you have all seen what has happened within four years the NPP has been in power,” he added.
The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in January selected Akufo-Addo as its presidential candidate in the upcoming general elections, slated for Monday, December 7, 2020, to set up a third straight head-to-head scramble for Ghana’s presidency against Mahama.
Akufo-Addo defeated Mahama in 2016 with 53.8 percent of the valid votes cast.
Meanwhile, the former president vowed to ruthlessly fight corruption when he becomes Ghana’s president in January 2021 by implementing to the letter the Special Prosecutor’s recommendations on the Agyapa Royalties deal.
The former special prosecutor, Martin Amidu, earlier this month submitted his corruption and anti-corruption risk assessment report on the Agyapa deal to President Nana Akufo-Addo.
