NPP Primary: I don't attack opponents because it should be a contest of ideas not insults
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says his principle in the New Patriotic Patriotic (NPP) flagbearership election is not to attack his opponents, but rather, focus on sharing his ideas and projecting the good works of the government.
Addressing NPP stakeholders in Goaso in the Ahafo Region yesterday, Dr. Bawumia stressed that it would be toxic for him to attack his opponents in an internal contest when the ultimate objective of every member of the NPP is to see the party defeat the opposition National Democratic Congress in 2024.
"I don't believe in attacking my opponents and I won't do that because it will be toxic and won't be good for our party," Dr. Bawumia said.
"This is an internal contest to elect our flagbearer, so why should I attack my opponents or say something against our party? I am running a very decent campaign. I am selling my ideas to delegates and I do that with decorum, with humility, with respect and without mentioning anybody's name."
The Vice President also said he has cautioned his campaign team members and spokesperson not to attack anybody, even if he is attacked by any aspirant.
"This should be a contest of ideas not insults. So I have told all my staff not to insult or attack anyone. They should stick to sharing my vision and message to delegates. I have told them that even if I am attacked or insulted, they, should not respond because I am a unifier."
