Africa-Press – Ghana. Spokesperson for the Vice President of Ghana Gideon Boako has bemoaned the incessant and vicious attacks and insults against Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia by other aspirants in the flagbearership race of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Gideon Boako, while commending Dr. Bawumia for taking the insults and attacks in his stride, noted that such actions by his opponents will not win them the flagbearership race.
In a social media post on Wednesday, September 20, Dr Boako stressed that despite the denigration, Dr. Bawumia remains focused on his campaign, and is in pole position to win the November 4 presidential primaries and lead the NPP into the 2024 general elections.
He called out supporters of the other aspirants to focus on selling their candidates to the delegates.
For him, no amount of insults or attacks will prevent the Vice President from winning the race.
“Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is a good man. Yes, he is a good man. In the flagbearer elections campaign, Dr. Bawumia is the most attacked, the most abused, the most vilified, the most disrespected, the most denigrated, and what and what, but he is still calm and very focused.
“He has not been responding to his attackers and has not shown any sign of the same. I wonder how many of his competitors can do the same.
“Interestingly, those exhibiting such abusive attitudes against the Veep are the ones crying the most. How interesting it is. First, it was Alan’s supporters. Now it is Ken and his supporters, but Bawumia remains calm.”
Dr Boako also insisted that desperation does not win election for anyone.
“I can understand the desperation and frustration in some of the aspirants, hence the needless attacks.
“But let it be said that their insults and attacks on the person of the Vice President and his family cannot win them the elections. What didn’t we see or hear before the super delegates and what happened?” he quizzed.
