My campaign will focus on socio-economic development, not insults – Bawumia

Source The Ghana Report

The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has pledged to focus his campaign message on salient social and economic issues confronting the nation, rather than resorting to a campaign of insults.

In a meeting with Wa Na Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV at his Palace in Wa on Sunday, May 19, 2024, Dr Bawumia assured him that, he would heed his advice to stick to a decent and proper campaign without insults throughout his campaign as the nation prepares for the December 7 polls.

“I am very much guided by your advice and that advice is one that I have been implementing and sharing my ideas with the people of Ghana with no insult to anybody. Just my ideas and this is how I have been campaigning throughout. So that is the message we will be going around with. To tell Ghanaians what I am going to do as president and what we have done as a government to ask for the people’s support to go to the next level”.

Dr. Bawumia also appealed to the chief and his people to vote massively for him to clinch victory in the 2024 election ahead of his main competitor, John Dramani Mahama.

“Myself and my main opponent [John Dramani Mahama] are all your children. We are both from the North and he has been president before but I haven’t been president before, so I have told him [John Dramani Mahama] that he is my senior brother, and he should have patience for me so I can also become president of this country.

“I will be able to be president for eight years, and he can only be president for four years, so if the presidency is coming home, then we should have it for eight years rather than four years”.

Meanwhile, the NPP flagbearer has also stressed the need for peaceful co-existence among Ghanaians of different faiths and religions for national unity.

According to him, there is no problem when a true Muslim gets closer to a Christian and vice versa.

Speaking to the clergy in the Northern Region, Bawumia appealed that the peaceful co-existence between different faiths in Ghana should continue.

He added that he feels very comfortable and confident associating with Christians since that was the virtue directed by the Holy Prophet Mohammed.

“I don’t think that being a true Muslim means that you cannot get close to Christians. I don’t see how being a true Christian, you cannot get close to Muslims.

“Prophet Mohammed said to the Muslims that of all the religions and faiths of this world, Muslims should get closer to Christians. That is what the Prophet Mohammed said, and so I am very much comfortable and confident in getting close to Christians. My brothers and sisters are Christians and I cannot say that I will not get close to them,” he noted.
