President Akufo-Addo has named his Vice president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as his running mate for election 2020.
This is the fourth time that president Akufo-Addo has chosen Dr Bawumia as his running mate.
In a remark at his acclamation, Dr Bawumia said “This day is history because it has never happened before in the history of our country that a presidential candidate will select the same running mate for the four times in a roll. It has never happened before”.
“He selected me in 2008 against all odds, in 2012, in 2016 and now in 2020. This tells you about the man Nana Dankwa Akufo-Addo that I have come to know over the last few years”.
The vice president also described his boss as “a strong leader, he is a caring leader, a God-fearing leader, a trustworthy leader and a consistent leader. He could have dropped me in 2012 and he could have dropped me in 2016 but he stuck with me and I am so honoured that he did and I am eternally grateful”.
He assured president Akufo-Addo that Ghanaians will give the NPP another term in office come December 2020.
“Mr. President, I will never take the trust and loyalty you have in me for granted. I will continue to do everything in my capacity to support you in the execution of your mandate as President. It has been a privilege and an honour working for you and I thank you for giving me the opportunity. God bless you. Mr. President, you have chosen me for the fourth time and Insha Allah, the people of Ghana will give you four more years to do more for them”, he assured.
