Bawumia was Akufo-Addo's pair for 2008 elections

Akufo-Addo-Bawumia clinch victory in 2018

Bawumia tipped to replace Akufo-Addo as NPP flagbearer


Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has stated that he had no idea of going into politics until it happened ahead of the 2008 presidential election.

As a trained economist, Dr Bawumia during a recent virtual lecture told students of the Buckingham University that, “I was the most apolitical, I never thought I will go into politics.”

Before becoming a politician, Dr Bawumia was a Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana.

Ahead of the 2008 elections, he was picked by then candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in consultation with the leadership of the New Patriotic Party as a vice-presidential candidate.

Dr Bawumia and Nana Addo lost the presidential election on two occasions before finally clinching victory in 2016 in their third attempt.

They won a second term in 2020 and have since been in office serving for the final four years of President Akufo-Addo’s constitutionally allowed two terms.

Meanwhile, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is tipped to be in the race for the replacement of President Akufo-Addo as NPP flagbearer in 2024.

His candidature has received significant endorsements from several members of the NPP.
