A partner is a partner, Bawumia cannot be in the driver’s seat – NDC Communicator


Lawyer and member of the National Democratic Congress communications team, Philemon Laar, says Vice President Dr Mahamud Bawumia does not qualify to be in charge.

His comments come after Dr. Bawumia laid out his vision for Ghana when he addressed the nation in Accra on Wednesday, February 7.

In his speech, the NPP flag bearer called on Ghanaians to vote for him as the next president to give him the mandate to implement policies that will grow the country, using the analogy of the driver’s companion.

The vice president said he learned lessons from the seven years of the Akufo-Addo government and revised his visions for the country.

Dr. Bawumia emphasized that despite being the driver’s sidekick, “if, by the grace of God, I am made president, I will be in the driver’s seat with the constitutional authority to pursue my vision and priorities.”

However, speaking of Joy Prime First morningLaar stated that the country and Ghanaians in general are not safe in the hands of the new flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party.

He said: “In fact, he is a companion, and a companion can never be a driver, because a companion is a companion. You have to be a co-pilot to be able to fly a plane, if he (Bawumia) wants to be one.” As a pilot he saves time and goes to an aviation school.”

The NDC communicator also pointed out specific policies and decisions made by the Vice President which he (Mr Laar) believes demonstrate Dr Bawumia’s unsuitability for the position.

The lawyer stated that the vice president’s policies have not effectively addressed the needs of the people.

According to him, the NPP flagbearer does not possess the necessary experience or leadership attributes required to assume the position of president.

“If we put a man like Dr. Bawumia on the streets of this country, he will end up killing pedestrians because he has no credentials, skills or ability to drive,” he told the host.
