The 2012 vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has made it clear to the delegates of the party – who will be electing the flagbearer during the upcoming presidential primary – that 2016 is not the time to experiment with a new candidate as the consequences for such an action would be dire.
Addressing the delegates at the Assembly Hall of the Bolgatanga Secondary Technical School, Dr. Bawumia stressed that the NPP would be on course to win the 2016 election with Nana Akufo-Addo as the presidential candidate of the Party.
‘2016 is not the time for experiments. We want to present a candidate who will win the election in 2016. When we look at 2012, we know Nana Akufo-Addo won the election. After all the evidence presented at the Supreme Court, we know we won the 2012 election,’ the erudite politician and economist of international repute pointed out.
He continued, ‘A government under Nana Akufo-Addo will solve the problems created by John Mahama’s government and restore Ghana onto the path of prosperity and progress.’
Touching on the incompetence of John Mahama, Dr. Bawumia indicated that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) had proven itself to be a government that ‘creates problems, instead of solving problems.’
According to Dr. Bawumia, the NDC found money for schemes such as SADA, SUBAH and GYEEDA. ‘However, when it comes to finding money for teachers to buy chalk, teachers and nurses’ allowances, paying of contractors, the GETFund, District Assemblies Common Fund, the government retorts by saying ‘there is no money,” he noted.
He revealed that interest payment on Ghana’s debt in 2014 alone was four times Ghana’s oil revenue, adding that ‘they have destroyed Ghana’s oil.’
Dr. Bawumia asked the delegates gathered, ‘Is this a government you want to retain in power?’ to which the response was a resounding ‘no.’
