The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has called on his main rival, John Dramani Mahama, to exhibit patience and allow him the opportunity to also serve as President.

During a visit to the Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV’s palace on Sunday, May 19, Dr. Bawumia stressed that while Mr. Mahama has already had a term as President, he has yet to serve in that capacity.

He urged Mr. Mahama to exercise restraint and permit him to take his turn.Dr. Bawumia highlighted that according to the constitution, Mr. Mahama is eligible for only one term, whereas he has the potential to serve for two terms if elected.“[My main opponent and I] are both your children.

We are both from the north and he has been president before but I haven’t been president before, so I have told him (John Mahama) that he is my senior brother, and he should have patience for me so I can also become president of this country.”

“I will be able to be president for 8 years, and he can only be president for four years, so if the presidency is coming home, then we should have it for 8-years rather than four years,” he said.

Despite actively campaigning, Dr. Bawumia emphasized his focus on addressing issues important to Ghanaians rather than resorting to insults or personal attacks against his opponents.

He reiterated his commitment to informing the electorate about his proposed plans and programmes for the country if elected President, rather than engaging in divisive rhetoric aimed at undermining his opponents.
