I've excelled as Vice President; promote me to President - Bawumia to Ghanaians

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the 2024 flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has called on Ghanaians to elect him as president, citing his exemplary performance as Vice President.

Speaking at the Youth Connect event in the Ashanti Region, Dr. Bawumia highlighted his hard work and achievements, claiming he has outperformed all other Vice Presidents in Ghana’s Fourth Republic.

"My work speaks for itself. If you compare the various Vice Presidents under the Fourth Republic, you can tell that my work rate stands out. If you ask John Mahama to point out even one policy initiative he spearheaded as Vice President, he can’t. I have 33 policies I’ve spearheaded. So the score is 33-0. Please promote me to become president because I’ve excelled as Vice President," Dr. Bawumia stated.

He also emphasised his long-term commitment to Ghana, arguing that his potential eight-year term would ensure greater accountability compared to Mahama's four-year term. "It is best to vote for someone who will be accountable than someone who has asked for a honeymoon even though he has just four years to be president," he said to the enthusiastic crowd.

Dr. Bawumia's campaign in the Ashanti Region is part of his broader effort to engage with the youth and other stakeholders, showcasing his extensive contributions and policy initiatives as key reasons for his presidential bid.

Relatedly, the Vice President has commenced the distribution of tablets to senior high school students across the country.

This initiative is a significant step forward in integrating Information Communication Technology (ICT) into the education system and aims to provide students with the necessary materials for their studies.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo recently launched the Smart School Project, which will involve distributing 1.3 million Smart Tablets to students in schools nationwide.

Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, announced during a visit to the Opoku Ware School that the tablets will be distributed there in the coming weeks.
