General Secretary of the main opposition National Democratic Congress, Fifi Kwetey has said Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia is not a trustworthy son of the north and must be rejected by his own people at the 2024 polls.
During the second day of former President John Mahama's ‘Building Ghana Tour’ of the Northern Region, Mr Kwetey told voters in Tamale that unlike Dr Bawumia, who is the flagbearer of the governing New Patriotic Party, Mr Mahama, who is seeking a comeback can be trusted.
“Northern region, you have produced a person that we can be proud of, a genuine son of the region, a genuine son of Ghana. He tells the truth. When he speaks, don’t you trust him? Yes, you can trust him."
"He told Ghana that even though dumsor was not caused by me, I will fix dumsor. And what did he do? He fixed it".
"So, you can commit your business into his hands because he is a man that can be trusted. You can commit your farms into his hands; he is a man that can be trusted. You can commit Ghana and the resources of Ghana and the destiny of 30 million plus Ghanaians into his hands because he can be trusted", Mr Kwetey said.
He, however, contrasted: “The same cannot be said of the other son that came from your region."
"That other son that comes from the Northeastern part of this region of yours cannot be trusted".
"So, you have produced two sons -- one can be trusted, the other one you cannot even give your small business into his hands. Comrades, you owe it to Ghana to ensure that the son who can be trusted rises again to the leadership of this country", Mr Kwetey noted.
