Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, vice presidential candidate and running mate for the New Patriotic Party candidate, has called the current ruling National Democratic Congress government the most corrupt government in the history of Ghana.
Speaking at a rally in Bongo, Upper East Region, Mr. Bawumia made these recent accusations, saying, "John Mahama’s government is the most corrupt government in the history of Ghana, there is no question about that; dollar for dollar, cedi for cedi, this is the most corrupt government."
Dr. Bawumia stated that in the past - or up until this government - northerners all had the reputation of being proud and honest, and that this government had tarnished that reputation. Dr. Bawumia called on the people of the north to try and restore that reputation.
Saying, Today the people of Ghana are viewing us very differently and therefore it is time to restore the pride of northerners and the way to restore that pride is to get rid of this John Mahama corrupt government. That is the only we are going to restore that pride,” he added.
