The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and his wife Samira, spent a significant amount of time on Friday campaigning for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate, Ernest Yaw Anim for Tuesday’s by-election, in the Kumawu Constituency, in the Ashanti Region.
The by-election has been necessitated by the death of Mr Philip Basoah, who was the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.
Their arrival in the afternoon, set the constituency agog, as frenzied constituents, both young and old, came out in their numbers to cheer and welcome them.
In the towns they visited, including Sekyere and Woraso, they were mobbed by a milling and enthusiastic crowd, giving them a hard time walking through on many occasions.
At Sekyere where the NPP candidate hails from, Dr Bawumia presented the candidate to the chiefs, asking them to pray for him and grant him their blessings ahead of the election.
Dr Bawumia told the crowd how intelligent the NPP parliamentary candidate was, and how in him, they would find a worthy successor to the late MP.
He urged Kumawu constituents to come out in their numbers on the Tuesday to prove to the world that “Kumawu is indeed the home of the NPP.”
“In this by-election, we want the whole of Ghana to know that Kumawu is NPP’s territory. With love, come out in your numbers to vote for our parliamentary candidate, Ernest Yaw Anim to win this by-election.
“He’s humble, hard-working and intelligent. He will ensure Kumawu is developed. I like him a lot, let’s all come together to vote for him boom boom,” Dr Bawumia urged.
