  • He said if Ghanaians want sustained growth they should choose Dr Mahamudu Bawumia instead

President Akufo-Addo has raised concerns that a possible Mahama victory in the upcoming December polls would decimate his legacy.

According to him, the former President does not appreciate anything he has done for Ghana's development and would rather undo his hard work than praise him.

He urged Ghanaians to vote for Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), to continue his projects and uplift his legacy.

The President also encouraged Ghanaians who have just turned 18 to register in the ongoing limited voters' registration exercise.

He said those who desire to exercise their electoral franchise must register before the May 20 deadline.

He also urged them to vote for NPP, as their votes would ensure that the party retains power in 2025.

He said he trusts Dr Bawumia, with whom he has served Ghanaians for the past seven years.

He is confident the vice president will perform marvellously when elected President on December 7.
