The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and his wife, Second Lady Samira Bawumia, spent a significant amount of time on Friday campaigning for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Tuesday’s by election in Kumawu Constituency, Ernest Yaw Anim.
The arrival of Dr. Bawumia Friday afternoon set the Constituency agog, as frenzied constituents, both young and old, came out in their numbers to cheer and welcome the Vice President and listen to his message.
In visited towns including Sekyere and Woraso, Dr. Bawumia was mobbed by a milling and enthusiastic crowd, giving him a hard time to walk through on many occasions.
In each town, Dr. Bawumia and his entourage, including the Parliamentary Candidate, first called on traditional authorities to seek their permission and blessings before going out to meet the people.
At Sekyere, where the NPP candidate hails from, Dr. Bawumia symbolically presented the NPP candidate to the Chiefs, asking them to pray for him and grant him their blessings ahead of Tuesday’s by-election.
Dr. Bawumia told the ecstatic crowd how intelligent the NPP Parliamentary Candidate is and how in him, they will find a worthy successor to the late MP, Philip Basoah.
He urged the Kumawu constituents to come out in their numbers on Tuesday to prove to the world that “Kumawu is indeed the home of the NPP”.
Dr. Bawumia and his wife are expected to join bigwigs of the NPP for the burial and funeral of the late MP Saturday in Kumawu.
The NPP is scheduled to have its final rally on Sunday ahead of the elections.
The Vice President is expected to address the mega rally, which will also be attended by other party bigwigs.
