Hawa Koomson also dismissed the notion that Bawumia is not a decision-maker in the government. She said that while he is the vice president, he is not a rubber stamp and can make his own decisions when he is in charge.
“If you say he’s part of the administration, sure, but he’s merely a vice, he’s supporting the president,” she said, adding, “He has no say. Dr. Bawumia is unable to preside over cabinet meetings without the president present and cannot sign any documents without the president’s permission. He can therefore make decisions on his own when he is in charge.
Bawumia was expected to win the NPP’s presidential primary in November by a wide majority, according to Hawa Koomson. She claimed that he is the most well-liked and experienced contender in the contest and that the party’s grassroots are behind him.
