Vice President Bawumia says he believes in President Akufo-Addo’s philosophy that politics is an avenue to serve the people, and deemed his nomination as running mate as a call to duty and a privilege to serve the people of Ghana.
“It (politics) is about serving your country and delivering concrete results that improve on the welfare of your fellow citizens with selflessness, dedication, honesty, transparency, and with the utmost integrity.
“I believe that an opportunity to serve Ghana is a privilege to serve all of Ghana, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, education, income, etc,” the Vice President noted.
Dr. Bawumia thanked members of the party at all levels for their continuous confidence in his nominations, as well as his family for their support.
Dr. Bawumia, while declaring his readiness to continue his partnership with President Akufo-Addo, urged party faithful to collectively join the task ahead and keep the vision of the party alive.
“Mr. Chairman, it is our collective responsibility, as members of the great Kukrudu family and as Ghanaians, to ensure that the sacrifices of these great men and women have not been in vain.”
“I am therefore acutely aware of the sacred responsibility that has once again been entrusted in me by the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and our Great Party.
“It is a responsibility I will execute with the utmost integrity, respect for our elders, members of our party, and members of other political parties.”
The vice president was speaking at the acclamation of President Akufo-Addo as the NPP’s presidential candidate for the 2020 presidential election, with him as the running mate.
