Wa: My campaign is issue-based – Dr Bawumia

Wa: My campaign is issue-based - Dr Bawumia

By Ivan Amponsah

The Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has assured the Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV that he will run a campaign based on issues that will better the lives of Ghanaians devoid of insults.

When he met with the Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, on Sunday at his Palace in the Upper West Region Dr. Bawumia, said his Campaign code named ”Bold Solutions for the Future” is carefully crafted to find solutions to the myriad challenges confronting Ghanaians. And he believes the solutions he is proposing are what will usher Ghana to her next chapter of development.

Some of his Policies includes Tax Amnesty for Ghanaians from 2025, Flat Rate Tax for Ghanaians, Flat Import Duties at the Port, Pegging Duties at the Port to that of the Lome Port.

Others include Mining Development Bank to support Mining sector, Ghanaian Ownership of the country’s Natural Resources, Building Golden Age of Partnership with Faith Based Organisations to be partners in development.

Private Sector Participation in Infrastructure Development, Making the Northern Region the Bread Basket of Ghana. He also promised to cut the size of government, reduce government expenditure by 30 billion cedis within four years and employing one million youth in the digital sector.

Dr. Bawumia, believes the NPP government has done a lot across all sectors such as Health, Education, Sports, Roads, Railways, Digitisation, Finance, Aviation, Agriculture, Industries, Social Amenities Infrastructure, but more needs to be done.

The Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, in a statement, read on his behalf, called on Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and all other presidential candidates to run a campaign devoid of insults, but it should be issue-based embedded with policies and plans to improve the living and economic standards of Ghanaians.
Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in reply to the advice of the overlord of Wa stated that since he started his campaign nearly two weeks ago, he has made a conscious effort to bring the electorate up to speed on his plans and programmes he intends to pursue if Ghanaians elect him as President.

He indicated that he is a Northerner and his closest contender, Former President John Mahama, is also a Northerner. However, John Mahama has been President of Ghana before, whereas he is yet to be President.

The NPP Presidential candidate, Dr Bawumia, therefore observed that since the presidency of the country is bound to come home (that is to say, one of the two Northerners contesting the Presidency, will become President) it will be most appropriate to have it for 8-years with him and not four years which will be the case if they vote for John Mahama.

“My main opponent and I” are both your children. We are both from the Northern and he has been president before but I haven’t been president before, so I have told him (John Mahama) that he is my senior brother, and he should have patience for me so I can also become president of this country,” Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said.

“I will be able to be president for 8 years, and he can only be president for four years, so if the presidency is coming home, then we should have it for 8-years rather than four years,” the NPP presidential candidate for 2024 general elections added.

The Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, in his address, commended Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, for taking strong stands against the LGBTQI+ issue. He said, the entire Muslim fraternity and the people of Wa stand with him on the position he has taken on the LGBTQI+ issue.

“Your statement made at the most appropriate forum and at the appropriate time was a master stroke, and we are confident that you are not supporting it LGBTQI+ now nor will you ever do so in the future,” the Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo stated.
