A vote for John Mahama in December will be an endorsement of Ghana’s retrogression, according to Second Lady Samira Bawumia.
Mrs. Bawumia said it will be a mistake to bring back the former president to power.
Mrs. Bawumia made these remarks while addressing party supporters in the Ashanti Region capital, Kumasi where she graced an event to inaugurate the party’s Women’s Wing Campaign Committee.
Mrs. Bawumia, who was made patron of the campaign team, urged members to work hard to increase votes of the NPP in the 2020 elections.
“This election is not about an individual, it is about our nation Ghana. It is not for you and me alone, it is about the future of Ghana. For the good job His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and my own Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and the kind of work they have done and served Ghana, we have to consolidate our gains”, Mrs. Bawumia said in Twi.
Citing the depreciation of the cedi, erratic power supply, and economic hardship Ghanaians endured during the Mahama administration, Mrs. Bawumia stressed the NDC cannot be an alternative to steer the affairs of the country.
She said: “God intervened and blessed us by giving us His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. So, we will not make that mistake again. We will not move backward; we are moving forward.”
“When a certain President came, he gave all Ghanaians Bauxite to his brother, but President Akufo-Addo changed the narrative and he said he will let all Ghanaians benefit from Ghana’s resources. If you don’t want this, what do you want again? Although we don’t have much of a problem in the Ashanti Region, just like the Regional Women Organizer said, more than 51% of the registered voters are women which means if the women vote, victory will certainly be ours. But we need a 100% turnout to let Nana Akufo-Addo win the elections”, she added, according to a CNR report.
