Chiefs in the Greater Accra Region have expressed confidence in the candidature of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in leading the country.

They believe Dr. Bawumia, who is the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate in the upcoming December 2024 elections, has what it takes to steer the country on the right track.

That, they said, was because Dr. Bawumia has the potential to surpass the achievements of his predecessors and make a positive impact on the country.

This was when he met the leadership and members of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs in Accra yesterday as part of his campaign tour of the city.

Speaking at the meeting, Paramount Chief of Nungua and Acting President of the Greater Accra House of Chiefs, Oboade Notse King Professor Odaifio Welentsi III, talked of Dr. Bawumia’s calm and composed personality as an asset that will serve him well in leadership, and urged him to maintain his temperament.

According to the House of Chiefs, Dr. Bawumia’s leadership style is a departure from the violent and radical approach that has characterised some leaders in the past.

They believe his calm demeanour will enable him to make informed decisions that will benefit the country and its citizens.

“We state with all emphasis that when it comes to effective leadership, you don’t have to be radical, violent, or pompous to be a bold leader. Being a bold leader is not about brawls, but rather brains.

“Having observed you from afar, we believe you have a lot of potential to offer this country. Do not disappoint, because your records will always be there – they will be used to evaluate you.

“On selfless leadership, we have less to say about you. Your Excellency, you are an accomplished man. You’re a successful man. Therefore, we are convinced you will not fail the test when it comes to selfless leadership,” he stated.

He emphasised that Dr. Bawumia’s personality is well-suited for leadership, noting that one does not need to resort to violence or radical behaviour to be an effective leader.

The House of Chiefs commended Dr. Bawumia for his leadership qualities and encouraged him to continue exhibiting the traits that have endeared him to many Ghanaians.

“As we gather here to listen to His Excellency the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana on what his leadership vision is or will be, should the electorates vote for him to become the next president of Ghana, it is our firm belief that someday if we measure your words now vis-à-vis your actions, decisions, and conducts, later when you become the president, you will score higher, compared to what we’ve had or seen in the past.

“There have been some rumours circulating round in the media, and even from your own political party, that Dr. Bawumia will be a pushover, even when he becomes the president. We dare to make a wild guess on why they think so: It is because of your calm, gentle and polite disposition,” he said.

Dr. Bawumia thanked the Greater Accra House of Chiefs for their kind words and assured them that he would continue to uphold the values of humility, calmness, and inclusivity in his pursuit of the presidency.

He also sought the wisdom and guidance of the chiefs in his quest to lead Ghana forward.

The endorsement of Dr. Bawumia by the Greater Accra House of Chiefs is a significant boost to his presidential ambitions.

Dr. Bawumia thanked the Greater Accra House of Chiefs for their endorsement and assured them that he will not disappoint the country when elected president.
