Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, 2016 Vice-Presidential Candidate for Nana Akufo-Addo, has appealed to Ghanaians to support the New Patriotic Party (NPP) so we can collectively build a nation we can be proud of.
“I call on all Ghanaians to support us to win the 2016 elections so we can collectively build a nation that we can all be proud of and a nation where every young person desirous of working will find the skills and employment with a decent wage; a Ghana where we do not only build a future for our youth, but also build our youth for the future; a Ghana where the basics like water, electricity and sanitation are available; a Ghana where our hard-working entrepreneurs can easily access capital; a Ghana where our young people will be well-educated and empowered to better compete in the global economy.
This Ghana that we all desire for ourselves and for our children’s future, can only be attained when we manage our resources with vision, competence and integrity and this is the pact Nana Akufo-Addo is offering,” he said.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia made this appeal in a statement of acceptance he issued following his appointment as the Running Mate to Nana Akufo-Addo for the 2016 Elections after the National Council of the NPP had given its unanimous approval to his selection by the Party’s flagbearer for the election, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Stating that Ghanaians deserved better with respect to economic and political governance than they were currently experiencing, Dr. Bawumia urged all concerned Ghanaians to come on board the NPP train.
“I am in politics because like many Ghanaians of my generation and the youth in general I refuse to accept that what we are witnessing today in terms of our economic and political governance and the attendant marginalization, joblessness and suffering of so many of our people, is the best that Ghana can do. I refuse to accept this state of affairs for our great country.
Come on board this train and let us build a Ghana where we are certain that our taxes and resources will eventually find their way back to us in the form of quality and affordable education and healthcare, jobs, roads, reliable energy etc. and not find their way into the pockets of those managing the resources.”, Dr. Bawumia stated in a passionate appeal.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia was grateful to Nana Akufo-Addo for his decision to hand him the opportunity to partner him once more on the mission to restore hope to the people of Ghana and deliver competent and honest leadership which will alleviate the undeserved suffering of the Ghanaian people.
He also thanked the former President, John Agyekum Kufuor and thanked the entirety of the Party for their support over the years.
