Former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Company (GNPC), Alex Mould has downplayed the competitiveness of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia should they face each other as running mates to their respective flagbearers.
Alex Mould believes the Vice President cannot match him in the 2020 December elections if chosen to assist as the running mate of John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, Bawumia is no competition for him and will easily beat him to the game.
Touting his achievements, Alex Mould said his experiences over the years and how he has successfully run big organisations; not only in Ghana but in America too, put him in the best position to go head-head with Bawumia.
There have been concerns as to who, within the National Democratic Congress, can compete Dr. Bawumia taking his economic background into consideration.
Suspended former Central Regional Chairman, Allotey Jacobs, in April said former President Mahama is finding it difficult to select his running mate because Dr. Bawumia has raised the bar for the opposition party.
Despite being elected over a year ago as flagbearer of the NDC, former President Mahama has not been able to choose a running mate, with barely six months to the December 7 polls.
Others have argued that the party’s inability to nominate a running mate can be attributed to the “Bawumia factor”. They believe the Vice-President’s style of politicking and understanding of economic issues demand that the opposition party gets someone of similar pedigree.
But speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express, Alex Mould said he is confident his pedigree can match Bawumia.
He stated that “You have to look at what I bring to the table and what he brings to the table and what role he is supposed to play as a vice president…Definitely, if you look at my pedigree I have run organisations successfully, I have been at the helm of running profitable organisations…but I don’t think I’m in competition with Bawumia at all.”
According to him, he has delivered efficiently in every sector he finds himself in and believes when taken as a running mate will secure NDC’s victory come December 7 election.
“I’ve been able to deliver high performing organisations… if you’re talking about the economy, of course, I can deliver. If you’re talking about energy, I can deliver. If you are talking about any area whether its trade, industry, infrastructure, I can deliver,” he said.
