Not the northern president we want - Dr. Bawumia to President Mahama
Not the northern president we want - Bawumia
Speaking in the Nadowli-Kaleo Constituency of the Upper West Region on Saturday, Dr. Bawumia made his comments in response to President Mahama's comments made a day earlier.
The NPP's vice-presidential candidate stated that northerners will not be satisfied with just having a northern president while the social-economic development has been disregarded. Saying, "We want someone to come to office to solve our problems, not somebody who sits in office and says I am a Northern President so I am going to let them steal your SADA money, cancel your Teacher and Nursing Training Allowances, collapse the National Health Insurance Scheme and not provide any services for your socio-economic advancement; that is not the type of Northern President we want"
Many members of the public were obviously outraged by President Mahama's openly tribal commentary. Since a response was expected, the NPP saw fit to have it come from someone who's also from the north.
“We want a President of vision, integrity and a President who is honest and a President who will get up and do the work for all the people of Ghana including the people from the 3 Northern Regions”.
