NPP’s National Council to decide Opoku Prempeh’s fate as Bawumia’s running mate today

The National Executive Council (NEC) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is set to meet today, July 4, to discuss the flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s choice of running mate for the upcoming December 7 general elections.

Dr Bawumia is anticipated to present and justify his selection of Energy Minister, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh, highlighting why he believes his choice is the most suitable candidate for the vice-presidential role.

This procedure aligns with the party’s constitution, which mandates that the NEC, as the second highest decision-making body, must approve or reject the nomination.

Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, before serving as the Energy Minister, was the Education Minister during the implementation of the government’s flagship Free Senior High School policy.

His nomination is viewed as a strategic move to enhance the party’s campaign, leveraging his expertise and leadership.

A recent survey indicates that Dr Prempeh is the favoured choice among the party’s grassroots members.
