Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia decided not to utilise state or official cars for his campaign in order to prevent power abuse, according to Gideon Boako, his spokeswoman.
Dr. Bawumia rode a bus with his campaign staff while participating in campaign events.
There have been many responses to the news since it was announced, with some saying it was all a show.
The spokesman retorted that he had to spend personal finances for the campaign because it was not a mandated obligation.
Dr. Boako described the move as an effort to safeguard public monies in a press interview.
This is the Vice President’s personal campaign. He does not want to take advantage of his position. He made the decision that he would not use governmental resources for this personal political effort. He drives a different set of cars.
The Vice President, according to Bawumia, had the option of using the customary V8s, but he decided to utilise this bus to show that he is a capable leader who is eager to make the most of his resources. He stated that the team’s bus contains every member, and once he is done, he uses it to travel wherever he desires.
He refuted accusations that the Vice President was misusing his position, saying that individuals making such statements are merely out for limelight.
They will continue to utilise the bus during the Vice President’s campaign activities, he indicated, as long as this was financially feasible.
“We began with the bus and have not yet run into a vus issue. So, we’ll continue riding the bus. If there is any criticism, we can provide it to him on the bus, and we can even have talks while on the bus since we feel so comfortable using it and it helps us bond, he added.
