Election 2024: Bawumia Tours Ahafo, Bono Regions May 8

The tour set for Wednesday comes after he visited the Eastern and Western Regions last week.

Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is set to continue his campaign tours in the Ahafo, Bono, and Bono East Regions on Wednesday, May 8, 2024.

“As part of his campaign tours Ahafo, Bono, and Bono East Regions Dr. Bawumia will be providing a deeper insight into his vision for the mining sector at a Transnational Dialogue organised by the University of Energy and Natural Resouces on Wednesday, 8th May, 2024,” said Dennis Miracles Aboagye, the Director of Communications for Bawumia’s campaign.

The tour set for Wednesday comes after he visited the Eastern and Western Regions last week. In his address to citizens as part of that campaign tour, he made huge promises to Persons Living With Disability (PWDs), vowing to ensure 100% Ghanaian ownership of mineral resources and formalize the informal sector with digitalisation processes.

Most of these promises are likely to form the basis for the NPP manifesto which should be outdoored some months away from the December polls.

However, analysts like Dr John Kwakye, the Director of Research at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), seem sceptical about the delivery of those promises.

“The presidential candidates seem to be proposing good policies: economic transformation, lean Govt, fiscal discipline, simplified and low taxes, natural resource ownership and value-addition, maximising the use of our resources and capacities, etc. But, will they deliver?,” he quizzed in a tweet.
