Vice President Bawumia officially unveils running mate

The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana and Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), H.E. Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has on Tuesday July 9, 2024, officially unveiled his running mate, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, for the 2024 general elections at Jubilee Park, in Kumasi.

“When selecting my vice-presidential candidate, I looked for someone who could help me win the election. I was an academic and a banker when I came into government as vice president. I sought someone with experience from the legislative branch to provide complementarity,” Dr. Bawumia said.

Adding that, “When I looked across the country, I finally landed in the Ashanti region, and it was none other than Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh. …“He has knowledge, and I have worked with him for the last 16 years. I have high respect for him. He’s a problem solver, a generational thinker, and I know I share the same vision with him. I know that when he becomes my vice president, we can work together to bring bold solutions for the people of Ghana,”

Dr. Bawumia further noted that, “With the NPP ticket complete, it is time, now more than ever, for us to close ranks and work assiduously to ensure resounding victory in the coming polls.” He has also expressed appreciation to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, for his warm reception and sound words of advice, when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo formally presented the NPP Presidential ticket to him.

In attendance were the National Chairman, Stephen Ayesu Ntim, General Secretary Justin Koduah Frimpong, other National Executives and a broad section of the rank and file of the NPP.
