The vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has dared the chief of staff Julius Debrah to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo, who also hails from the Eastern region, if he believes in the “vote for your own” theory he propagated in the North.
Mr. Debrah over the weekend said Northerners should vote for President John Mahama because he is from the region.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia wondered why the Chief of Staff was not applying the same principle since he is from the Eastern region, where Nana Akufo-Addo also comes from, if indeed voting for someone from “your region is what is needed to positively transform the lives of an individual or group”.
“Over the weekend we heard the Chief of Staff in the North saying that John Mahama is from the North so people from the North should vote for him; ironically, the Chief of Staff is from the Eastern region, so why is he not voting for Nana Akufo-Addo? The Chief of Staff thinks he can deceive us.
“The people of the North do not need the Chief of Staff to remind them that Mahama is their brother; the people of the North are witnesses to the corruption and incompetence. What happened to the SADA money? The people of the North remember how John Mahama allowed money meant for their development to be stolen by his people,” the economist told the people of Diaso in the Upper West Denkyira constituency of the Central region.
Stressing that it was ultimately about who can deliver and improve on the lives of the people, Dr. Bawumia noted that even though he is from the North, he will just campaign on that fact but indicated that the most important reason why the NPP must be voted for in the December election is that the Nana Akufo-Addo – Mahamudu Bawumia – NPP ticket is the competent and visionary team that can be trusted to change the lives of Ghanaians positively and bring the development, jobs and prosperity desired.
Dr. Bawumia who has been on a tour of constituencies in the Central region since Monday, was accompanied on his tour in the Upper West Denkyira Constituency by Member of Parliament for the Constituency, Benjamin Ayeh and NPP Parliamentary Candidate for the Constituency, Samuel Nsonwa Gyan.
