I’ll be more accountable than Mahama because I want an 8-year term – Bawumia.

The flagbearer of the NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says he will be more accountable to Ghanaians than his main contender, former President John Mahama, if elected as president during the December 7 polls.

This, according to him, is because he will be seeking re-election after his first term in office.

Addressing professional bodies in Kumasi as part of his three-day tour of the Ashanti Region, the Vice President argued that Mr. Mahama would not be accountable to the people since he would not seek re-election.

“I also believe that if you make me a 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.

“And so I will be more accountable. I will come back to you and say this is what I have been able to do and then you can you will renew my license and I will drive the vehicle so we go forward.

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.”

The Vice President also announced that the Ministry of Finance is making arrangements to reimburse clients of companies liquidated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) during the financial clean-up exercise.

The move, according to Dr. Bawumia, is aimed at bringing relief to affected investors while promoting transparency and accountability within the financial market.

“It looks like the Minister of Finance is looking forward to making some payment to customers of the liquidated companies.”
