The Ghana Union Movement (GUM) in the Northern region says the selection of two Northerners as flagbearers for NDC and NPP would not appreciate their votes in the 2024 general elections.
Addressing Journalists after swearing in newly elected regional executives of the party, the Communications Director of the party, Mr. Tahidu Dandawa hinted that the leadership of GUM are well prepared to take over the mantle of power from the two "corrupt" political parties.
“We don't care about their candidature, our focus is to make our flagbearer become the next president of the republic," he stated.
He said Ghana is not a two-party State where only the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) should continue to alternate power. “We have skewed strategies to make GUM more popular and attractive here in the North,” he added.
Mr. Tahidu stated that the two candidates have failed the people of the North since they have nothing different to offer when given the mandate again.
He further accused former President John Mahama of plagiarizing a portion of their party's manifesto recently, revealing that the '24-hour economy' policy was captured in their party's 2020 manifesto.
The Regional chairman of the party, Alhaji Alhassan Iddrisu Fuseini said the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) is the only party that can tackle the plight of Ghanaians.
He mentioned that the founder and flagbearer of the Ghana Union Movement is the saviour who is ready to fight corruption, unemployment, destruction of water bodies, excessive borrowing and looting of state properties.
A National Executive member of the party who spoke on behalf of the Founder and Flagbearer of the party, Mr. Antwi Bosiako expressed hope that the newly elected executives would improve the fortunes of the party in the 2024 elections.
