NPP to Unveil Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh as Running Mate for 2024 Election

The ceremony is set to take place at the Kumasi Jubilee Park in the Ashanti Region, a stronghold of the party. The event is expected to attract a large number of prominent figures within the NPP, including President Akufo-Addo, the Council of Elders, Members of Parliament, and other key members.

On July 4, the NPP’s National Council confirmed the current Energy Minister as Dr. Bawumia’s running mate, a decision that has generated widespread discussion across the country. While some view Dr. Opoku Prempeh as an excellent complement to Dr. Bawumia, others criticize him as being arrogant and hotheaded.

President Akufo-Addo has expressed strong support for the pairing, describing them as an “excellent” team with the potential to secure victory for the NPP in the upcoming elections. In a statement to journalists, President Akufo-Addo highlighted the strengths and leadership qualities of both Bawumia and Opoku Prempeh, emphasizing their suitability to lead the party and drive Ghana forward.

“The National Council has endorsed the nomination of Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh to be the running mate of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. The NPP has an excellent ticket, and we’re going to win with this ticket on December 7, 2024. The feeling is good; they make a very good pair, and they are going to win,” President Akufo-Addo said.

The selection of Dr. Opoku Prempeh marks a significant step in the NPP’s preparations for the 2024 general election, with the party aiming to maintain its leadership and continue its agenda for national development.
