The aspiring presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has made an emotional appeal to voters, drawing a sharp contrast between himself and his opponent, the former President John Mahama.

In a meeting with the Clergy in the Upper West Region, Dr.  Bawumia addressed a crowd gathered he emphasized the critical choice facing voters in the upcoming election.

“It’s a choice between myself and the former president,” he declared. “But he has been president before. I haven’t been president before.”

In an effort to set himself apart from his predecessor, Dr. Bawumia emphasized the significance of allowing him to demonstrate his skills.

“You’ve previously seen his handwriting. You haven’t seen my handwriting yet,” he said, imploring the electorate to think about the possibility of fresh leadership.

Touching on the issue of accountability, Dr. Bawumia underscored the difference in voting for former President John Mahama and himself and their respective terms.

“For him, he won’t need to come back again. It will just be bye-bye and you won’t see him again. He will come for four years. He has only four years. So when you give him four years, he will not come back again. No accountability. As for me, I know that in four years, I have to come back and speak to you. And you ask me questions,” Dr. Bawumia stated.

Expressing his commitment to diligent work and responsiveness to the electorate, Dr. Bawumia pledged to strive tirelessly to earn the trust of the people.

“I will work very hard. I will work very, very hard so that when I come back, I can answer your questions,” he affirmed.

In a poignant conclusion, Vice President, Dr. Bawumia appealed to voters to consider the long-term implications of their decision.

“So for me, I believe that you can give me that opportunity so that I can implement so many of these ideas.”

With his impassioned plea resonating with the crowd, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia made a compelling case for change, urging voters to embrace the prospect of fresh leadership and the promise of accountability and responsiveness in governance.
