Audio Attachment:Listen to Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia before leaving for the United States.
Vice-Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said that the vision of the next NPP administration under Nana Akufo-Addo would ultimately be to create a society of champions and a society which competes favorably in the increasingly competitive global environment.
Dr. Bawumia who was speaking just before he left the shores of the country for a two and a half week tour of the United States of America and Canada, also took time to congratulate popular hiplife musician Sarkodie on his BET Award and Ghanaian footballer Kwadwo Asamoah on his recent transfer to Juventus, noting, that the whole essence of the vision of Nana Akufo-Addo was to ensure that there were more of such world conquerors not only in music and sports but also in other fields such as business, medicine, architecture etc.
Speaking on the message and vision of Nana Akufo-Addo, he said, “Basically, the campaign has been focusing on the key message of making Ghana globally competitive. As we know in very recently, some of our young people like, Sarkodie has won an international award. We have seen also our players and sportsmen at the highest level in the world; Kwadwo Asamoah even just got transferred to Juventus. We have the Essiens and the Muntaris and many others who are doing well out there but we want to build Champions in Ghana who would be able to compete globally, not just in sports or music but in business, architecture, agriculture, medicine and so on.”
He added, “We want local Ghanaian champions that would give us that competitive global edge and this really is why Nana Akufo-Addo is focusing so much on the message of education because that really becomes the channel through which we are going to build the skill base that Ghana needs to compete globally”.
He stated that the message was also on jobs for the youth since it was through jobs that the hopes and aspirations of the youth could aptly be satisfied and through which the Ghanaian people would be able to put to productive use their talents and skills.
Dr. Bawumia is expected to hold various interactions with the Ghanaian community in seven states in the United States and do same in Toronto and Edmonton in Canada. He is expected back in Ghana on the 25th of July.
