Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has unveiled three policies aimed at strengthening the bond between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) grassroots and the party’s leadership if he secures the flagbearer position and wins the presidency in the 2024 elections.
One of these initiatives is the “One Constituency – One Godfather and Mother” program, alongside two others. Bawumia initially introduced the “One Constituency – Ten Appointments” policy and intends to add “One Constituency – One Welfare Office” as the third.
During a campaign stop in the Oti Region, Bawumia explained that these policies are in response to concerns raised by party loyalists who feel excluded from the governance process when the NPP comes into power.
He believes that these policies, if effectively implemented, will lead to better integration between the party and the government.
Bawumia is currently the frontrunner in the race for the NPP flagbearer position, having secured over 68% of the total votes cast in the preliminary round held on August 26. The final election is scheduled for November 4, where he will compete against three other candidates: Kennedy Agyapong, Afriyie Osei Akoto, and Francis Addai-Nimoh.
