Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says the forthcoming December 7 general elections should centre on policies and ideas.

He says Ghanaians should scrutinize the ideas and policies proposed by the various candidates which must be the basis for electing who they want to lead the country.

In an address during the Eid-Ul-Adha celebrations held at the State House in Accra, the Vice President emphasized the need to ensure unity and discussion which focuses on policy in the electoral process.

“We are one people, we are one nation, and we should let this election be about the policies, ideas, and solutions that the respective candidates have for the country, and that is what we should be focusing on.”

Dr Bawumia also noted Ghana’s status as one of the most peaceful countries in the subregion.

“Ghana is a blessed country. We are the most peaceful country in West Africa and probably about the fifth or so most peaceful country in Africa,” he said.
