Ghana needs a visionary leader like Bawumia, says Kufuor

Kufuor said Bawumia has been a hard-working and loyal vice-president to President Akufo-Addo over the past eight years, hence the wisdom in Ghanaians giving him a chance to lead the country

The former president John Agyekum Kufuor has said Ghana is at a crossroads and, therefore, needs to elect a visionary leader such as Mahamudu Bawumia to lead the country in the December general election.

Kufuor said Bawumia has been a hard-working and loyal vice-president to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over the past eight years; therefore, he said, Ghanaians must give him a chance.

John Kufuor was speaking on Wednesday (7 February) at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), where Vice-President Bawumia outlined his vision for the country as the 2024 presidential candidate of the governing NPP.

“Ghana has come to a crossroads and I’m serious here. It is not the normal regular politics we want: we want a leadership with a vision even in the complex world I have talked about,” said Kufuor: “a leader that will be able to marshal the new technologies and pick the requisite manpower …

“We must get people of competence to work with him to find our way out of the confusion our society and economy has been plunged into – I wouldn’t blame any side,” he said.

If you look at the track record of all the parties, you can’t find one that can say that in their time, they were excellent or superb, no. We are in a new situation, and I believe in [that] situation … the saying is: ‘Cometh the hour, cometh the man.’
