Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has Bawumia has reiterated his commitment to party unity, having earlier, in the heat of the campaign, called for a decent campaign devoid of insults.
Interacting with the media at his residence in Accra on Thursday, ahead of Saturday’s election by the NPP to elect a new flagbearer, Dr Bawumia expressed strong optimism about getting the endorsement of delegates to lead the party after his fruitful nationwide engagements with delegates.
“By the grace of God, I have brought my campaign, the visits to the NPP delegates in their constituencies to an end. Every constituency has been a home for me for the past 15 years…” Dr. Bawumia said.
The Vice President used the occasion to restate his campaign message to delegates, which included his strong relationship with the party at all levels, his commitment and service to the party from opposition to date, his starring role in the landmark 2012 election petition at the Supreme Court, his impact in government as Vice President, his support for party activities, as well as his policies to strengthen unity in the party and relationship between government and party if he is elected flagbearer and subsequently wins the presidency.
“Throughout my campaign, dear friends, I also stressed the need for a decent campaign devoid of rancour to preserve the unity of our party. I demonstrated this value, by embarking on a campaign devoid of insults and personality attacks.”
“As I stressed throughout my interactions with delegates across the country, I am committed to the unity of the NPP and I as the party’s flagbearer, will bring everybody on board.”
Dr. Bawumia will be on the ballot with three other contenders, Addai Nimo, Kennedy Agyapong and Dr. Akoto Afriyie.
