NPP Primaries: Education Minister Publicly Endorses Bawumia


Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has received the support of Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, Minister of Education and Member of Parliament for the Bosomtwe Constituency in the Ashanti Region.

The support of Dr. Adutwum comes ahead of a special college vote that will select five of the ten candidates for the ruling party’s presidential primary in November of this year.

“I know Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. He has a good heart and he laid his life for the party. Dr. Bawumia has stood for the hardworking people of Bosomtwe. But more importantly, he understands education and socio-economic development.

“He will be a better president,” the Education Minister stated at an endorsement meeting at Abountem, where he urged delegates in Bosomtwe to support the Vice President’s bid.

He claims that because of the kindness of President Akufo-Addo and his Vice, the name of the Bosomtwe District has been revived and disseminated throughout the entire country.

“We have a lot of schools. I personally sent 150 students to university to study engineering and medicine. We hope that during the next ten years, our people will be working in various hospitals across the country.

“We have 30 engineers graduating from UMaT this year. When you voted for me as you MP, President Akufo-Addo appointed me as Deputy Minister of Education and later as substantive minister, with the support of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia,” the Education Minister stated.

“You are all aware of what happened to me when I was Deputy Minister. I had some tough times. I went to him and asked for his help, and he told me not to be sad because I had his support.

“This is something I will never forget. He shook my hand and drew me to the front of his office, telling me to be firm. Mr. Vice President, I will never forget the day you held my hand and told me you would support me. You also said I’d get through this and survive,” he claimed in the presence of Dr. Bawumia.

Dr. Adutwum said he decided to support the Vice President because Dr. Bawumia had shown himself to be a “real human being.” He was joined by Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah and NPP Ashanti Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, also known as Wontumi.

“I am the Minister of Education, and I am a member of cabinet. Some of the contestants were colleague cabinet ministers. I could have simply stated that I would play a neutral position, but I am forced to do so because of one individual, Dr. Bawumia.

“So today, I want to declare here that all those who love Dr. Adutwum across the length and breadth of Ghana, I whole-heartedly and fully endorse the flagbearership of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia,” he announced.

“Wherever he goes, I am going to follow him. If you love Dr. Adutwum you love Dr. Bawumia. My people of Bosomtwe, follow me to push this man to the top and I believe that he will never forsake Bosomtwe.

“He will do what you are praying for. You have shown love to me. Show love to Dr. Bawumia too,” Dr. Adutwum intimated.
