Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says he’s poised to partner President Akufo Addo as running mate to win the 2020 election to enable the New Patriotic Party(NPP) to continue with the transformation of Ghana agenda that the administration has started.
According to him, he’s most honoured and privileged that he’s been chosen by President Akufo Addo to support him run the affairs of Ghana.
President Akufo Addo at NPP National Council meeting on Saturday, June 27, 2020 officially announced that he’s selected his vice, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as his running mate for the upcoming December 7, 2020 general elections.
This is the fourth time President Akufo Addo has chosen Dr. Bawumia as his running mate as he first did so in 2008, 2012, 2016 and then 2020.
Dr. Bawumia in responding to his nomination said it is important to note that his job as running mate is to support the President in implementing his vision.
“The best running mate in the world would not make a difference if the President is indecisive or incompetent. I’m thankful that in President Nana Akufo Addo, I have a strong decisive, incorruptible, and competent President to work for. All I can say now is that I’m whole-heartedly and all humility accept the nomination and I’m ready and prepared to serve. I say to President Akufo Addo, the NPP and Ghanaians that I’m reporting to duty as running mate to his Excellency President Akufo Addo, the current and Insha Allah the next President of Ghana.”
