The New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, proposed Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, popularly known as NAPO, as his running partner for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

President Akufo-Addo was consulted by Dr. Bawumia on his choice of running partner during a Tuesday night meeting, according to sources close to the president who spoke with Citi News.

According to reports, President Akufo-Addo offered some advice, expressed his opinions, and ultimately approved Dr. Bawumia's appointment.

Bawumia presents Napo as running mate

Dr. Bawumia emphasized that the selected candidate, a 56-year-old physician with a degree from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), presented NAPO's name to the President. Since his initial election to the legislature in 2008, he has been re-elected in 2012, 2016, and 2020.

Dr Bawumia further noted that NAPO has served on the Health Appointment Defense, and Interior Committees of Parliament and was appointed as Education Minister in 2017.

There is a growing demand for Dr. Bawumia to choose the Energy Minister as his running mate for the upcoming December elections.

Several polls have indicated that Opoku Prempeh is the preferred choice for running mate among NPP party executives ahead of the 2024 general elections.
