Ashanti Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi has mocked that the Bawumia effect is the reason the National Democratic Congress is having troubles selecting its running mate.

According to him, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is now the yardstick for NDC’s choice of choosing a running mate due to his superior performance in office and knowledge of economic matters.

Former President John Dramani Mahama’s delay in announcing a running mate has been topical in in recent times with many questioning his strategy.

But speaking in an interview monitored by ABC News, Chairman Wontumi averred that the delay is because the NDC party is confused and does not know the right person to compete with Dr. Bawumia since they see the Vice President as a threat.

He opined that “NDC chose Amissah-Arthur as a running mate because of Dr. Bawumia. The Vice President, Dr. Bawumia is a threat to the NDC…You cannot go and take anyone. If Amissah-Arthur couldn’t match Bawumia, how can you take someone else who is incompetent to match Bawumia? I’m not surprised they are finding it difficult to select a running mate. They know they can’t win cos the value is the same.”

Chairman Wontumi further said President Akufo-Addo’s lucky charm is Bawumia and should be blessed someone like him (Bawumia) came into his life.

According to him, Bawumia’s competency is the reason Ghana is witnessing significant transformation in the economy through digital innovations.

He said “I once asked President Akufo-Addo if he knows his biggest achievement. He looked at me and asked why. I told him his biggest achievement is Dr Bawumia. So I told Akufo-Addo is not Free SHS, not One District One Factory but Dr. Bawumia.”

Heaping praises on the Vice President, the NPP Ashanti Regional Chairman said “Bawumia is not corrupt. You can compare him to all Vice Presidents Ghana has had and you’ll realise he stands out. He will never do anything without the knowledge of President Akufo-Addo. And Bawumia is not a thief, he is satisfied with his salary so anyone who follows Bawumia will realise he is self-disciplined. Bawumia is knowledgeable in economics. It’s through him that GHC1 equated to $1. Bawumia brought digital system, mobile money interoperability, everything digital was from him.”
