Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has committed to delivering greater accountability to Ghanaians compared to his main contender, former President John Mahama, if elected president in the upcoming December 7 polls. Speaking passionately to professional bodies in Kumasi during his three-day tour of the Ashanti Region, Bawumia emphasized that his drive for an 8-year term necessitates a higher level of transparency and accountability, promising to work tirelessly to earn the trust and confidence of the electorate.

Bawumia explained that his commitment to accountability stems from his intention to seek re-election after his first term. “I believe that if you make me president, I will be more accountable to you because I will be looking for an 8-year term. An 8-year term means that you are first going to give me a 4-year term, this means I have to work very hard to justify why you have to give me another four years,” he stated.

He argued that Mahama, who would not seek re-election, would lack the incentive to be accountable. “I believe that my main opponent is only looking for a four-year term, that means immediately you give it to him and he goes on his honeymoon and he comes back you will not see him again. There will be no accountability but for me, you will get accountability,” Bawumia asserted.

In addition to his pledge for accountability, Bawumia announced that the Ministry of Finance is arranging reimbursements for clients of companies liquidated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) during the financial clean-up exercise. This move aims to bring relief to affected investors and promote transparency within the financial market.
“It looks like the Minister of Finance is looking forward to making some payment to customers of the liquidated companies. In the case of Gold Coast Securities and others, it is something on our agenda and I believe that the Ministry of Finance will look at it. We have engaged affected customers and we look forward to the payment,” Bawumia said.
The Vice President emphasized that these measures are part of his broader agenda to ensure financial stability and accountability in Ghana.
