Vice President and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, is leaving no stone unturned, in his bid to engage electorates ahead of the December 7, Presidential election.

Barely 24-hours after a mammoth event to unveil his running mate, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh in Kumasi on Tuesday July 9, Dr Bawumia, is already in the Northern region to pitch camp for the next few weeks.

He left Kumasi for Tamale immediately after the outdooring, and on Wednesday morning, he started what will be series of community engagements in the five Northern regions in the next two weeks.

Dr Bawumia’s campaign, so far, has been consultative, energetic and grassroots-based, as he engages with traditional rulers, identifiable groups and community members on the streets, markets and in their homes.

It is not likely, he will depart from same routine, considering the enormous impact it made in the first phase of the campaign.

Dr Bawumia’s running mate, NAPO, has also hit the ground running by starting community engagements, starting from the Western region.
