Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Madam Lydia Alhassan has showered praises on Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

Madam Alhassan made the remarks at a mini-rally at Abelemkpe in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency at the just ended Dr Bawumia's working tour.

She said the NPP government had asphalted the deplorable roads in the constituency, started constructing an AstroTurf and a health facility in the area.

She described Dr. Bawumia as an intelligent and hardworking Vice President, saying he has distinguished himself as a powerhouse of knowledge in the field of economics and management of the economy as the head of the Government’s Economic Management Team.

“The Vice President is very intelligent and hardworking that is why I am pleading with you to vote for me and President Akufo-Addo to continue our good works.”

“Never in the history of Ghana has a Vice President been so visible and notable in government business,” she added.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia also said the Akufo-Addo-led government has laid a solid foundation during its first term in office for prosperous socio-economic development in its second term.

He thus urged Ghanaians not to make a mistake of voting John Mahama, NDC’s flagbearer into government since this will ruin the fortunes of the country’s anticipated progress.

Dr. Bawumia said the Mahama-led government was a total failure and could not be trusted to continue the good policies initiated by the ruling NPP government under President Akufo-Addo.

He cited flagship programmes and policies initiated by the NPP government including the free Senior High School, Planting for Food and Jobs, One-District, One-Warehouse, One-Constituency, One-Ambulance, One-Village, One-Dam and One-District, One-Factory.

He further explained that the ruling government had also restored the teacher/nursing trainee allowance cancelled by the previous administration, paid two billion Ghana cedis arrears of the NHIS left over by the NDC government and fulfilled 80 percent of its 2016 electioneering campaign promises.
