The running mate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has said victory is assured for the main opposition party in the three regions of the North come the December elections.
The former Bank of Ghana deputy governor was confident his northern root will be a major factor in winning votes for the NPP.
He said the recent enthusiastic reception he received while on tour of the Northern region of Ghana with the NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, assures him of victory despite the herculean task ahead.
“My visit to the North with Akufo-Addo has been quite good,” Dr. Bawumia told Accra-based Joy FM.
Dr. Bawumia, during a visit to the Malata Market in Accra, said the three Northern regions – Upper East, Upper West and the Northern region – could be captured by the party when a great deal of effort is put into the campaign.
He said: “The response gives us a lot of hope. Nonetheless, there is no room for complacency. We’ll have to fight for the North in terms of votes.
“It has not been a traditionally strong NPP area so the response this time has been encouraging and with a lot of hard work we can make it.
