Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has urged Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to address Ghanaians freely about the problems he encountered as the country’s second gentleman.

According to Koku Anyidoho, it is critical for Bawumia to give insights into the problems he had throughout his seven-year stint as vice president, as well as provide clarity on how these challenges impacted his capacity to contribute to the country’s progress.

In an interview on Rainbow Radio on January 4, 2023, he voiced worry that Bawumia, who also serves as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, has to outline his strategy for overcoming the obstacles of vice president if he is elected president.

“What did you do, Vice President, when you were seeking power prior to 2016? You traveled around the country as a running mate. You promised a lot, and now, you have been the vice president for seven years.

“Indeed, you are not the president, and I agree that Bawumia’s little window and escape route lie in the fact that he has not been president before, but now he is seeking the mandate to be president,” he said.

He continued “So, we grant him some breathing space. Even still, there are questions that we can ask him. Now, tell Ghanaians, what are the real challenges that the vice president faces? So that when you become president and we have your vice president, are you willing to allow your vice president more space to function, or will you just follow the tradition that vice presidents are merely vice presidents?

“For me, in terms of advancing the development discourse, you can’t say you didn’t know about all things that are going on in the country …within your period and your window, what did you do, and why didn’t you do certain things?”
