Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the running mate of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has been formally presented to His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.

During the official introduction ceremony, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo extolled the exceptional qualities of Dr Bawumia and his running mate expressing confidence in their ability to secure a resounding victory for the NPP in the 2024 general elections.

He praised Dr. Bawumia’s outstanding contributions to his administration over the past seven years, highlighting his humility, dedication, and commitment to the nation’s progress.

“Dr Bawumia had helped me in so many ways, I doubt if any President had the support of his vice like I did. He’s humble and dedicated; he always supports me. He’s the one Ghanaians are expecting to break the eight. He will add to my good works and move Ghana forward.

“Otumfuo, Dr Bawumia decided to select from your own house, your grandson, NAPO who is the MP for Manhyia South and he’s also a minister, he’s the one Dr Bawumia introduced him to the national council, and they all unanimously agreed to be the running mate of Bawumia.

“I have worked with these two gentlemen, and I know their capabilities, if they are given the nod, they will deliver to the betterment of Ghanaians. He worked hard at the education ministry during his tenure and has also been working hard at the energy ministry. I came here to introduce NAPO and Bawumia to you. We came here to seek your blessings to help them succeed.”
