Mahama has failed the Northeners – Dr Bawumiah

drBawumiahThe Vice Presidential Candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has urged the people of the three regions of the North to reject the Mahama-led government at the November polls.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia explained being a Northerner should not mean automatic support for President Mahama to be voted for, noting, he has failed all northerners.

“Just being from the north is not enough to vote for somebody to be a president and therefore I am saying that the key is the ability to solve the problem facing the people,” he explained.

The former deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana made this statement when he addressed some Muslims of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Movement in Wa in the Upper West Region.

He averred the argument that a vote for John Mahama is a vote for a Northern is no longer tenable especially when he has not been able to deliver the public goods to Ghanaians.

“In fact, Ghana is in more wahala than when Mahama came in as the President of Ghana,” he said.

The renowned economist said the Mahama-led government lacks the skills to solve the many self-inflicted challenges facing Ghanaians.

“If it is about a northerner,” the renowned economist said, “then vote for me because I am also from the north.”

He reiterated the competence of the NPP, saying, they have the requisite skills and competent people to create a shared prosperity for all Ghanaians.

“We seek leadership, not for ourselves but so that we can bring some prosperity and some values to people’s lives,” he said, noting, “There is so much suffering that is going in Ghana today.”

He entreated the people to pray for continued peace in the country especially as the nation marches into the election.

“We want a very peaceful country so please pray for peace in this country,” he said, adding, “I plead for you to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo and let us come in to do the work.”
