Bawumia was a supportive Vice President – Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo has expressed his deep admiration for his Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who is the Presidential Candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming elections.

Reflecting on his tenure, the President highlighted the unwavering support and humility demonstrated by Dr. Bawumia throughout their administration.

He said this while addressing the party supporters who trooped to Manhyia Palace on Tuesday for the grand unveiling of the NPP ticket.

As the NPP seeks to ‘Break the 8’, President Akufo-Addo underscored Dr. Bawumia’s readiness and capability to lead the nation.

The President expressed strong confidence in Dr. Bawumia’s potential to build on the current administration’s achievements.

“I can assure you that when he becomes President, he will deliver. He will double whatever I have done for Ghana to transform,” he stated.

Meanwhile, the Asantehene has advised Dr Bawumia’s running mate, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh to show humility as he joins the flagbearer ahead of the general election.

According to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, this is the only way to ensure the compatibility of the duo as the party seeks progress.

During his brief speech at Manhyia, the Asantehene recounted the days when he helped Dr. Prempeh through school, including paying his fees.

Acknowledging Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s achievements, he stressed that he had heard rumors regarding the Energy Minister’s attitude.

He said the claims suggest that the running mate is arrogant.

The King wondered about the cause of this allegation, as he never saw that trait in the man he affectionately described as his son.

Asantehene also cautioned Dr. Prempeh to ensure that Dr. Bawumia never regrets selecting him as his running mate.
