NPP forced NAPO on Bawumia

Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has claimed that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the party's flagbearer, chose his running mate grudgingly.

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the minister of energy, is now the front-runner.

On June 27, 2024, Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe claimed in an interview with 3FM's Sunrise that Dr. Bawumia was under duress to select Dr. Opoku Prempeh.


In the first scene, Akumfo-Addo chose his running buddy; in the second, he did the same. Why is Bawumia unable to select his own running mate? He can't choose his own running companion, as I know for a fact, and I brought this up over seven months ago.

“If we are not careful, that alone can destroy our party. Bawumia is a nice gentleman but it’s not every gentleman who can be a good politician. I predicted that Bawumia will not be given a free hand because of their own interest to pick his own running mate, that has happened,” he said.

Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe expressed doubts about the party's goal to break the eight, asserting that “those at the helm of affairs are not helping” the party. He also stressed that President Akufo-Addo does not heed the advice of the party’s founding leaders.

He continued: “Kufuor listens, but Nana Addo doesn’t listen. I’m saying it and I will say it again. Because if he listens then this hotel issue should not be an issue at all.”

The flagbearer of the NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, had reportedly presented Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh as his running mate to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

According to JoyNews’ Presidential Affairs correspondent Elton Brobbey, a meeting took place on June 25 at the Jubilee House. During the meeting, Vice President Dr Bawumia presented his choice to the President.

Elton Brobbey clarified that President Akufo-Addo offered some advice and shared his thoughts, but eventually accepted Dr Bawumia's choice.

He said the chosen candidate is a 56-year-old medical doctor who graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
