Bawumia urges Voltarians to consider NPP alternative

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia2The presidential running mate for the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Dr  Mahamadu Bawumia has called on the people of the Volta Region to end the election sequence of putting all their eggs in one basket in relation to voting patterns in the country.


He said shopping in one market was dangerous and so they should think of a more viable alternative such as the NPP in the November election to end the two-term reign of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during which the rate of unemployment was getting worse and indicators of economic growth showed reversals.

Business and people friendly economy

Dr Bawumia said an NPP government would create a competitive economy and build a business – and people-friendly economy.

He said tax credits would be granted to industry in order to create an enabling environment for them to open avenues for more employment opportunities.

The running mate was on a day’s tour of the Ho West Constituency during which he addressed chiefs and elders at Tsito, Abutia,Dzolokpuita, Kpedze and Amedzofe.

He was accompanied by a former minister of state, Ms Elizabeth Ohene, Volta Regional chairman of the NPP, Mr John Peter Amewu,  a former regional chairman, Mr Ken Wud Nuworsu, a former Ho Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Mawutor Goh, and some regional party executive members.

False picture of economy

He told the chiefs that the government of the day had painted a rosy picture of the economy despite the general decline in the agriculture, economic and industrial sectors and that the claim by the government was in sharp contradiction to the quantum it had borrowed and the investment made in the country, adding that the reality was that conditions of life had worsened.

Dr Bawumia said the imposition of new taxes was a desperate policy and was hurting the economy as well as being a disincentive to the operations of the private sector growth because businesses were recording a slump as well as struggling to grow, with some of them winding up.

Inevitable change

He, therefore, said a change after the November elections was inevitable because the nation was in crisis evident by the high cost of electricity for domestic and commercial consumers, the unprecedented high rate of unemployment and general economic hardships faced by citizens.

In his introduction,  Amewu said the voting pattern in the region had not been favourable for other parties in the region except for the NDC and advised for a change because overstaying in a forest is a death trap.
