‘I Am The Best Vice President Ghana Has Ever Had’ – Bawumia Boldy Declares To Muslim Community



Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia Highlights Achievements and Promises in Address to Muslim Ummah in Wa

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and current Vice President of Ghana, has highlighted his significant contributions to the Akufo-Addo administration over the past seven years, boasting about 33 policies he has suggested and championed. Speaking to the Muslim Ummah in Wa last Sunday, Dr. Bawumia emphasized that his extensive experience and effectiveness as Vice President make him the ideal candidate for the presidency.

Reflecting on his tenure, Dr. Bawumia confidently stated, “If you look at the work I have done as a Vice President, I can list 33 different policies I have done or initiated or championed, and if I can do all of these as Vice President, then if you make me president, I can do much more.” He asserted his unparalleled effectiveness, claiming that no other Vice President in Ghana’s history has matched his contributions. In a pointed remark, he challenged his main opponent to cite a single policy they have championed, highlighting his own extensive record of initiatives.

Dr. Bawumia enumerated key achievements under his guidance, particularly in the realm of digitalisation. Ghana, he noted, is now at the forefront of digital transformation, thanks to innovations like the E-pharmacy, the Ghana Card, the Digital Address System, and Mobile Money Interoperability. These initiatives, unique to Ghana, have revolutionized financial transactions, allowing seamless money transfers between mobile networks and bank accounts.

One notable achievement Dr. Bawumia highlighted was the elimination of ghost workers from the government payroll through the Ghana Card. By linking all workers’ Ghana Cards to the National Database, the government identified and removed 44,000 ghost workers from the National Service Secretariat (NSS), saving GH¢400 million, and 19,000 ghost pensioners from the Social Security Trust Fund (SSNIT), saving GH¢350 million. “Two institutions alone have saved the country GH¢750 million,” he declared, emphasizing the financial prudence of his digitalisation efforts.

Dr. Bawumia also mentioned that Ghana’s advanced digital systems have garnered international attention, with other countries looking to learn from Ghana’s example. As part of his presidential vision, he promised to train one million youth in digital skills, requiring only basic literacy as a qualification. This initiative aims to create employment opportunities beyond Ghana’s borders, enabling the youth to work remotely from their homes.

In his address, Dr. Bawumia not only showcased his past accomplishments but also laid out a vision for a digitally empowered future for Ghana. His emphasis on digital skills training underscores a commitment to economic growth and innovation, promising to leverage technology to transform the nation and improve the livelihoods of its citizens.
