Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Ghana’s Vice President, claims that he has made sufficient sacrifices for the New Patriotic Party to merit consideration for the role of party leader in the elections scheduled for 2024.
According to Dr. Bawumia, when the party needed a witness for the general election petition in 2012, he was available to sacrifice for the NPP even though his competitors were making excuses.
Dr. Bawumia underlined the many sacrifices he has made for the party over the years when speaking to delegates in the Suame constituency as part of his campaign in the Ashanti Region. He also noted that his political career was on the line when he served as a witness for the party. This was done as part of his campaign in the Ashanti Region.

“The excuses were many; some claimed they were travelling and all that because they were scared to put their political career on the line, but I stood my ground; I’m the best person to lead the party,” Dr. Bawumia added. “The excuses were many; some claimed they were travelling and all that because they were afraid to put their political career on the line.”
