Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia has predicted victory for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 elections.
Soon after filing his nomination forms at the NPP headquarters, he indicated that it was a major step to retaining power in the 2024 polls.
“I have just filed my nomination forms to contest as flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party for the 2024 presidential elections. I believe this is the first step to our victory in 2024,” Bawumia said on Friday 16 June 2023.
According to him, he has for over two decades worked for both the NPP and Ghana both in opposition and in government, rubbishing claims of doubts in his loyalty.
“Over the last 22 years, I have worked hard with you for the NPP and for Ghana from during the Kufuor era as deputy governor of the Bank of Ghana, through our years in opposition and now in government.
“During this period, I have sacrificed for the party, I have defended the party in good times and in challenging times, I have never wavered nor slacked. Never! and I have built a solid track record of performance as vice president and unflinching loyalty to our party and government through rain or shine,” Bawumia said.
He added: “I have a compelling vision for Ghana’s future. It is possible for Ghana to be like the advanced nations if we put our minds and energies to it.
“With the technologies available, the new ones that are emerging, and a renewed mindset, we can leapfrog impossibilities and make the unimaginable possible. It is possible to break the eight, in order to continue with the transformational policies we have started. It is possible!”
To this end, he offered himself to lead the party and Ghana in order to achieve the vision outlined.
“I am offering myself, in all humility, to contest in the primaries of this phenomenal party, the great New Patriotic Party, to become our flagbearer, and presidential candidate for election 2024 and Insha Allah, the President of the Republic of Ghana,” Bawumia added.
