The Second Lady, Samira Bawumia, has delivered an impeccable speech of gratitude and whipped up support for President Nana Akufo-Addo ahead of the general election on Monday, December 7.
The Second Lady was addressing party supporters who attended the final rally of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Mantse Agbonaa on Saturday, December 5, 2020.
Samira fervently critiqued the campaign of John Dramani Mahama, while stressing the presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has no vision or cohesive plan to advance the lives of Ghanaians.
''While President Nana Akufo-Addo is putting out his policies and visions for the people of this country, another leader is putting out a doctored tape ... that is the choice the good people of Ghana are faced with on Monday, but the people of Ghana have rejected the propagandist and ethnocentric [Mahama].''
Samira Bawumia went on to express gratitude to President Akufo-Addo for being resolute and firm in his conviction in selecting her husband, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, as his running mate for four consecutive times.
''Personally Mr president, I am grateful that you have been resolute, you've been firm in your conviction, that you have selected the vice-president, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, four times in a role ... That has allowed me to serve my people and to be of service to thousands of women, children, and men across the country.''

''Mr President, for all the lives you have changed, for all the destinies you have changed, for all the dreams you have made come true, we're saying thank you, God bless you,'' Samira said.
Towards the end of her speech, Samira assured President Nana Akufo-Addo that for his good works, Ghanaians will vote to retain him in the presidential race on Monday, December 7, 2020.
