A former Chairman of the National Democratic Congress in the Central Region, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has appealed to the National Democratic Congress to carefully pick men with the pedigree of Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia in discussing economic issues and not mere communicators.

Speaking on Peace FM’s flagship morning show, Kokrokoo, Mr Allotey Jacobs warned that it would be suicidal for the NDC to downplay Bawumia’s relevance in Ghana’s political space and especially, going into the 2020 elections.

The tremendous challenge, he emphasised, is the failure of the party to select a running mate and admonished that whoever is selected must have the same pedigree as Bawumia.

“The greatest problem my party is facing is that up till now we have not nominated our Vice President so Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia is raising the bar, he is really raising the bar and it will go to the extent that we would have to get someone with his pedigree to interface with him,” he said.

Allotey Jacobs also wondered if the NDC has someone who can punch holes into Bawumia’s lectures. “What I am saying is, who (in the NDC) can punch holes into the presentation of Vice President Bawumia? Monkeys play by sizes. We need someone who can match him”

Uncle Allotey observed that Bawumia has digitalized political communications to the extent that he is capable of separating propaganda from facts, and said it is something the party must deal with.

The former regional chairman touted the strategic plan of Dr. Bawumia and said that it disrupted the communicative structure of the NDC.

“You see he has in a way roughly driven into our political space. Right now, from 2017 till now, he is occupying almost two-thirds of our political space because we popularize him by criticizing him every day” The more you mention him, Allotey Jacobs said, the more he resonates with the people and that’s the mistake.

“Left to me alone, if Vice President Bawumia speaks, I am begging my NDC communicators, I would be insulted for this but the fact is we have to get someone who can stand up to Dr. Bawumia. Election year, he has done it again, for the whole two weeks, it’s all going to be Bawumia” he reflected.
