2020 Elections: Vote Akufo-Addo to protect Ghana’s gains -Bawumia

October 8, 2020 By 0 Comments

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has urged the people of Atobiase not to forget the frustrating hardship former President Mahama plunged the country into during his reign a few years ago.

Speaking at a Durbar of Chiefs in Atobiase in the Wassa East Constituency of the Western Region, Vice President Bawumia said the overwhelming election of President Akufo-Addo in 2016 saved Ghana from the doldrums as a result of the mismanagement of the country by Mahama, and December’s election was about protecting the country from going back to the dark days under Mahama, as well as protecting the overwhelming turnaround under President Akufo-Addo.

“The 2020 election is about protecting the future of our country,” Vice President Bawumia told the chiefs and people of Atobiase.

“Under former President Mahama, we saw the mismanagement of our economy, which plunged the country into many problems, including dum-so, collapse of the NHIS, massive unemployment, failure to pay basic allowances for teachers and nurses, etc, collapsing agriculture, among others.

“Ghanaians intervened and voted massively for Nana Akufo-Addo, and in nearly four years, there has been tremendous turnaround, and the evidence is there for all to see.

“That is why I say December’s election is about protecting the country from going back to the dark days under Mahama. It is also about protecting the many gains under President Akufo-Addo, such as economic stability, Free SHS, One Village One Dam, One Constituency One Ambulance, One Village One Dam, Planting for Food and Jobs.

“This country is making progress and we cannot go back to hardships under Mahama.

“We are delivering Free SHS, which Mahama said was a hoax, and we cannot go back to somebody who is capable of cancelling it, just as he cancelled teachers and nurses trainees’ allowance.

“Mahama sent this country into dum-so for almost five years, because they didn’t have the money to pay, and Akufo-Addo has solved it. We cannot go back to dum-so.”

From the national level Dr. Bawumia narrowed down to local issues and lamented how the National Democratic Congress (NDC) neglected Atobiase and its surrounding villages for eight years.

He said, on the contrary, the Akufo-Addo government had demonstrated its commitment to inclusive development in less than four years, by extending development to communities in and around Atobiase, and all parts of the country.

“As Atobiasehene said, there is evidence of what Nana Akufo-Addo’s government has done for the people of Atobiase in just three and half years.

“The question is what did the NDC do in this area in eight years? The MP for this area was a Deputy Minister of Roads, but the roads here are in bad shape. He and his government didn’t do anything about it.”

Dr. Bawumia urged the people to reject former President Mahama and the NDC, because they have nothing good to offer the area and Ghanaians, and throw their weight behind Nana Akufo-Addo, so that he can continue the good works he has started for them and the country.

Dr. Bawumia is in the Western Region for a two-day tour of the area.
