I Nominated Napo Because He Is Results-Oriented

In a vibrant and festive atmosphere at Kumasi’s Jubilee Park, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, affectionately known as NAPO, was officially introduced as Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia’s running mate for the upcoming December 2024 Presidential elections.

During the ceremony, held on July 9, 2024, Vice President Bawumia highlighted Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s exceptional work rate, results orientation, and impactful tenure as Minister of Education and later as Minister of Energy. According to the Vice President, these qualities were pivotal in the decision to select NAPO as his running mate.

The choice of NAPO as running mate was widely regarded as a “no-brainer”, given his proven track record and strong support base. Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh represents Manhyia South in Parliament, a stronghold where the NPP consistently garners over 80% of the vote. Evidently, in addition to his competencies, NAPO’s grassroots appeal and ability to resonate with party members and the public were decisive factors in his selection, reflecting a strong commitment to the party’s values and national aspirations.

His royal lineage at the Apagyafie of the Manhyia Palace and familial ties to former President John Agyekum Kufuor add historical and cultural depth to his candidacy. Prior to the public introduction at Jubilee Park, NAPO had received a formal blessing from Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace, underscoring his deep connection to the Asante Kingdom.

Following the outdooring, party members and supporters praised Vice President Bawumia’s choice and expressed optimism about the potential of the Bawumia-NAPO ticket. They asserted the combination of Bawumia’s economic expertise and NAPO’s youthfulness, administrative prowess, and political experience will position them to articulate a compelling vision for Ghana and secure an unprecedented third term for the NPP under the Fourth Republic.
