The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Bosiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, has disclosed that Ghanaians should be grateful to have Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
He said the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo did Ghana a great service by bringing Dr. Bawumia as his running mate.
The outspoken politician attributed this feat as one of the President’s greatest achievements and not the popular Free SHS policy.
“Akufo-Addo is blessed to have Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as a Vice President. I said during the 2020 elections that one of Akufo-Addo’s biggest achievements for Ghana is not Free SHS, it is Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
“Because the guy has a very big sharp brain. If you meet him …. And when he starts to talk, you will know that he is intelligent in his words,” Wontumi told Paul Adom-Otchere.
He went further to credit the Vice President for helping Ghana with what he described as ‘Electronic Transaction,’ as well as for the Ghana Card initiative.
“Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is the person who helped us to get E-Transactions businesses like E-Levy and stuff, he is the same person who helped us to develop the Ghana Card, he was the brain behind it,” he stated.
He said where successive governments tried and failed, “Akufo-Addo put him (Bawumia) in charge and he has made it happen. He has brought Ghana to compete with the International Community in the area of IT,” Wontumi stressed.
