Bawumia tells Ghanaian’s not to repeat the mistake they made in 2008 by voting for Mahama again


The 2020 Election is fast approaching and every presidential candidate is trying everything possible to secure the seat for their political parties.

Almost every time we hear competitors of these presidential seat throwing jabs at one another just to reveal mistakes of themselves in order to give the general public a wrong impression about them.

The last development is that, Ghana’s Vice president Dr. Mahamudu bawumia has stated that Ghanaian will be making a mistake by voting for John Dramani Mahama and the NDC party in the December 2020 General elections.

One might be wondering what might make the vice president make such comments.

According to him, Ghanaian’s will only repeat the ‘mistake’ they made in the 2008 general elections because as per him, it would be recalled that Ghanaians suffered hardship after they voted massively for the NDC party.

He even Stressed that, the country was then entangled with power crisis, inactive National Health Insurance Scheme among other social amenities that would have benefitted Ghanaians in general.

He claimed that the President Kufuor government took over a weak economy which was in a bad state from the NDC in 2001 but he worked harder to transform the country.

According to him, Ghana’s Former president (Kufour) through his better leadership, introduced the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Capitation Grant, free maternal care and other good things which helped the economy and the country as a whole.

“We made a big mistake by voting for the NDC in 2008 as they mismanaged the economy and destroyed all the gains secured by Mr. Kufuor. During their eight years in political office, the NDC collapsed the NHIS, brought dumsor, destroyed the economy, refused to employ graduates and others.” bawumia Stated.

He was of the view that Ghana’s current president Akufo-Addo and his government did a good job by bringing economy back to life and has tasked all Ghanaians to give him four more years to continue with his developmental projects.

As to whether you agree with him or not is entirely your decision to make.


“After inheriting an ailing economy in 2016, the NPP administration has brought renaissance into the economy.

We have also brought Free Senior High School (SHS) policy, employed nurses and teachers, brought National Builders Corps (NABCO) and many more positives,” he added.

He said, “All you need to do on December 7 is to vote massively for President Akufo-Addo and all NPP parliamentarians so that the government can complete the good works for us.”
