The latest to commend the Vice President of the Republic and 2024 Flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party is Stephen Atubiga, a Kusasi figure who is also founder and leader of the National Liberation Party (NLP). 

According to Stephen Atubiga, Dr. Bawumia’s speech was “brave and unifying” adding that Dr. Bawumia has “lifted himself very high”.  

Atubiga’s observation comes after the Vice President’s visit to the BawkuNaba and his elders about a week ago.

During the visit, Dr Bawumia said he was poised to end the violent conflict in Bawku should he be elected President of Ghana saying Mamprusis and Kusasis are brothers and sisters.

Dr. Bawumia expressed pain over the disagreement that has ensued between the two factions adding that development of the human resource in the area should be the focus of the residents rather than conflict that has cost them so much..

Reacting to this, Atubiga said “the Brave and Unifyiny speech by Dr. Bawumia to the overlord /Zigraan (sic) of the Kussaag (sic) and the people of the Kusasi traditional area has shown not only is he a  son of the northern soil ready to lead, but he has also lifted the Bar very high.”

“….This 2024 election is no longer going to be about the rubber stamp. It’s going to be about, which Northern presidential candidate can pull the North along”. He wrote. 

He added: “I congratulate Dr Bawumia for his braveness. Over us as people of the area, to propel his speech for a peaceful cohabitation like before. No President or Government can give us peace, more than ourselves”.
