Akufo-Addo Warns: Voting for Mahama Risks Ghana’s Future

President Endorses Bawumia, Cautions Against Opposition

by Victor Adetimilehin

Amidst the bustling activity at the premises of Blue Skies Limited in Doboro, Greater Accra, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo delivered a critical endorsement for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s candidacy in the upcoming December elections. However, the President’s visit, aimed at rallying support, turned into a significant political event as he laid out his vision for Ghana’s future.

“The stakes are high this election year,” President Akufo-Addo told the gathered supporters, underscoring the importance of voter registration. “If you haven’t registered and are eligible, now is the time. Your vote is your power,” he urged, emphasizing that every vote counts in shaping the nation’s destiny.

A Plea for Continuity

Drawing a stark contrast between his administration’s achievements and the opposition’s plans, President Akufo-Addo did not mince words about the dangers of a leadership change. “The person I defeated, the former President John Dramani Mahama, does not seem pleased with the work I have done since taking office. I cannot hand over power to him; he will destroy whatever we have achieved,” he declared.

This strong endorsement of Dr. Bawumia is rooted in a partnership that has spanned over seven years. President Akufo-Addo expressed unwavering faith in Bawumia’s ability to further the country’s development agenda. “I am pleading with you to vote for the person I have worked with, whom I know will continue the work I have begun,” he intimated to an enthusiastic audience.

The Opposition’s Response

While the President’s remarks were aimed at boosting Dr. Bawumia’s prospects, they also highlighted the growing tensions between the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). Moreover, the NDC has been vocal in criticizing the current administration’s policies, promising a different path should they return to power.

Moreover, as Ghana gears up for what appears to be a tightly contested election, the political landscape is marked by debates over economic strategies, social policies, and the vision for the country’s advancement. President Akufo-Addo’s plea to the voters is clear: to sustain the momentum of development by keeping the NPP in power.

This election is not just about choosing a President; it’s about deciding the trajectory of Ghana’s future. The choice, as framed by President Akufo-Addo, is between continuity under Bawumia and potential regression under Mahama.
