Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has taken a swipe at fellow flagbearer aspirants of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In the last few months, the Vice President has been subjected to jabs in the race for the flagbearer position of the party.
Firebrand Kennedy Agyapong is one aspirant who has not spared Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia from criticism and attacks.
Addressing NPP stakeholders in Goaso in the Ahafo Region on Monday, September 18, the Vice President said he would not engage in attacking his fellow opponents.
According to him, he believes in running a campaign without insults and won’t mention names during his bid to sell his message to delegates to vote for him in the NPP flagbearer election.
“I don’t believe in attacking my opponents and I won’t do that because it will be toxic and won’t be good for our party. This is an internal contest to elect our flagbearer, so why should I attack my opponents or say something against our party?
“I am running a very decent campaign. I am selling my ideas to delegates and I do that with decorum, with humility, with respect, and without mentioning anybody’s name,” Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia said.
He continued, “This should be a contest of ideas, not insults. So I have told all my staff not to insult or attack anyone. They should stick to sharing my vision and message to delegates. I have told them that even if I am attacked or insulted, they, should not respond because I am a unifier.”
Following the decision by Alan Kyerematen to withdraw from the flagbearer race of the NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is facing stiff competition from Assin Central MP Ken Agyapong.
The election is scheduled to be held on November 4.
