Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, led hundreds of people on a stroll through Kwahu on Saturday morning, causing the city to come to a complete stop.

Most of the attendees were NPP members at the grassroots level, but there were also many NPP leaders present, including General Secretary Justin Kodua Frempong, National Organiser Henry Nana Boakye, Minister of Agriculture Bryan Acheampong, and a number of MPs and NPP regional and constituency executives.

Vice President Bawumia’s presence, who was surrounded at the walk’s beginning and attracted a large crowd, gave spice to the well-attended Unity Walk, which was organised as part of events commemorating Easter festivities in Kwahu.

Dr. Bawumia walked the entire path with the passionate participants, who yelled his name and sang songs supporting his presidential campaign despite following his Ramadan fast.

The Vice President spoke to the gathering as the tour came to a finish inside the Mpraeso community.

He thanked them for participating in the walk in such a large number and used the occasion to highlight some of the infrastructure projects and interventions the Akufo-Addo government has undertaken, such as free access to senior high school and TVET, the unprecedented expansion of roads and railways, the development of sports facilities, the use of drones for medical deliveries, ambulances for all constituencies, mobile money interoperability, and various other digital initiatives.

In regards to employment, Dr. Bawumia claimed that the Akufo-Addo administration has produced approximately 2.1 million jobs, with 1.2 million in the public sector and 900,000 in the private sector.

He informed the crowd, “These are verifiable, and anyone with a contrary figure can forward and confront me.

According to Dr. Bawumia, the Akufo-Addo administration is committed to generating more jobs for young people and plans to do so by working assiduously to revive the economy, which has been hurt by the ongoing global financial crisis.

He challenged the former president John Mahama to name just one policy he has implemented during his political career while urged the NPP faithful to be proud of what the administration has accomplished in the previous six and a half years.

“Just one, please; not two or three. Can John Mahama, who has been in politics for close to three decades, name any one policy that he implemented in this nation? He has held the positions of deputy minister, minister, vice president, and president. Dr. Bawumia pressed the former president, who is expected to serve as the NDC’s nominee for the 2024 elections, to mention just one policy.

One of the clear favourites to be chosen by the NPP as its flagbearer for the 2024 elections is Dr. Bawumia.
