Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia

Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Thursday, April 4 continued his engagements with key stakeholders, as part of preparations for this year’s elections.

He met members of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana, in Accra, to throw more light on his policies for the industry and the nation.

During the meeting, he said “We’re going to change the duty structure and go into more of a flat specific duty. If you have a 40-footer container, you know how much you are paying in cedis. So, you take the exchange rate out of the matter and deal with it.

“We are also going to make sure that our duties in ports by policy cannot be higher than in Lome, which is our competitor. And right now, there’s a lot of diversion of containers to Lome because ours are higher.”

After the engagement, he further wrote on his X platform that the interaction also gave him further insight into issues of concern to members of the Society, which I pledged to include in my policy.

“Transforming the industry and making Ghana a pharmaceutical hub in West Africa to start with, will be of enormous benefits to Ghana, and my government, by the grace of God, will focus on that.

“With a committed political will and the right investment to support the industry, it is possible to make Ghana a pharmaceutical hub in West Africa.”
