“The party and national campaign team put together four different teams and divided the country into four, this team members headed by my good self and five other members we are to inaugurate the teams in the five Northern Regions.

Dr Bawumia, as we all elected as the Flagbearer on November 4th last year and since then he has given the major speech on the 7th February 2024 although the NDC had elected their own Flagbearer months before him, but it was clear that he didn’t have a clear vision for wanting to present himself as the president for the country”.
