Bawumia is tolerant, respectful, honest & selfless – fmr Alan campaign com. dir.

Former Communication Director for the campaign team of Alan Kojo Kyeremanteng in the Northern Region, Alhaji Kaleem Ibrahim has appealed to the delegates of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) across the country to vote for the Vice president, Dr. Mahamud Bawumia.

Alhaji Kaleem who recently announced his intention to switch to the vice president’s campaign team stated this through an official statement to campaign for the veep as the November 4 congress approaches.

According to him, Dr. Bawumia is unblemished, making it difficult for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to label anything negative to campaign against him.

Below is the full statement:


Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, you are highly welcome. We greet you all for honoring our invitation this morning.

The purpose of this gathering is to be candid about who DMB is and why he should lead NPP come 2025 general election. 

The party needs the following characteristics in our next leader ; – One with Vision (Visionary)  – Selfless  – Influential  – Dedicated  – Honest  – Respectful.

In view of this, the main opposition party (NDC) is bent in bringing back former President John Dramani Mahama. Because marketability is essential in this contest. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, the vice president has been marketed both domestic and international for sixteen (16) years (2008 – 2024).  He has acted as president during president Nana Addo’s absents. Not even once has the president complain any negative attitude against the Vice President during his acting as the president.

The Vice President is therefore very credible in partnership with the president.  The vice president is the symbol of the North, to erase the long term perceptions that NPP is an Akan party. 

Gentlemen and Ladies of the media, to boost the moral of our forefathers who were instrumental in establishing of this tradition. Let us not forget that the symbol of NPP is the same symbol of the Mampurugu traditional area of the North.

President Kufour once said in 2004, “that the marriage between a Northerner and a Southerner has always been great.  Dr. Bawumya requires to win the forth coming November 4th primaries and will subsequently nominate a Southerner as his running mate which will erase the longterm perception that the NPP is an Akan party. 

With his high level of understanding and tolerance, DMB would be the best person to address the suffering of the party foot soldiers. The entire party admires and respect him so much because he always resisted tribalism, Disunity and Discriminations. 

Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, we are also appealing to delegates to extremely go through the characters of all the aspirants, and present to the party to win the hearts of Ghanaians before 2024 elections. 

Dr. Bawumya again is the only person who can attract the Zongo communities here in Ghana.

Elections in Ghana previously, one cannot underestimate the zongo vote which has always merit the NDC in terms of numbers. DMB has a wider chance in bringing the zongo vote to NPP in the next elections come 2024. 

Distinguish media men and women, after almost 8 years as Vice President, DMB is in no doubt without equal in the NPP flagbeaerership race when it comes to international recognition. His moral conduct, humility and respect for mankind has made him a darling friend of most head of state worldwide. 

Most importantly, DMB has been able to utilize his religious background to build a strong relationship with the Muslims and high producers of oil worldwide, hence when given the chance to govern, will have a huge impact in our struggling economy.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the main headache of our party (NPP) is how to strategize to win a larger proportion of the main opposition party (NDC) strong holts basically Volta Region and the five (5) Northern Regions. 

These six (6) traditional Regions (Volta and the Five Northern Regions) since time immemorial have firmly established their confidence and trust in NDC against NPP. About 75% of the minority members in parliament are from these six (6) regions, which has given the NDC more room to castigate the government on most policies and other policies, government plans and programmes in parliament.   

Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, it is obvious that election results from these six (6) region previously favours the NDC, however this scenario needs to be change absolutely in favour of NPP come 2024 general election. 

DMB is the only person who can turn the clock for NPP due to his popularity in those areas. As vice president for close to eight (8) years, he has tremendously lobby for more developmental projects into these six (6) regions. At the moment, Volta Region is one of the most beautiful region with good quality roads networks, schools, health centers and many other interventions by this government. 

The five (5) Northern Regions has also had their fair and greater shares of such interventions. E.g. – Tamale International Airport Face Two  – Tamale Interchange  – Agenda 111 – One District One Factory  – One Constituency, One Ambulance etc.  The only man behind these policies is the Vice President.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the media, in conclusion, the Vice President DMB as a result of his commitment to these regions has attracted the full support of some chiefs, opinion leaders of these areas.  Therefore, the kingmakers of our party (Delegates) must not do any harm to the entire party by electing a candidate who cannot attract the full mandate of Ghanaians. 

Delegates DMB is set to break the eight (8) therefore vote massively for him come 4th November, 2024. 

Thank you.
