The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says the acclamation of the party’s presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is a sign of resounding victory for the party in the upcoming 2020 presidential polls.
The NPP on Saturday, June 27, 2020, acclaimed Nana Akufo-Akufo as the party’s presidential candidate for the 2020 polls.
President Akufo-Addo also nominated Vice President, Dr. Bawumia as his running mate at the ceremony held at the Alisa Hotel in Accra.
Dr. Bawumia’s nomination was subsequently endorsed by the NPP National Council.
“This important exercise completes the NPP’s 2020 Presidential ticket and signals the party’s journey to yet another resounding victory on the 7th of December, 2020. The Akufo-Addo-Bawumia ticket, undoubtedly, proves to be a trustworthy ticket with an unbeatable proven track record in terms of delivering on its social contract with the Ghanaian electorates,” the party said in a statement on Sunday, June 28, 2020, signed by its General Secretary, John Boadu.
According to the party, the Akufo-Addo led administration has done well in its first term and deserves a second term.
“Considering the amount of work that has been done by the Akufo-Addo led government in its first term even in the midst of all the challenges it inherited from the erstwhile incompetent Mahama administration, it certainly cannot be doubted that President Akufo-Addo and for that, the NPP’s presidential ticket is deserving of another term to complete the transformation agenda.”
The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has also assured the party that he will do everything possible to win the 2020 presidential polls for the New Patriotic Party.
“I thank the Almighty God for the honour done me today by the members of the National Council of the NPP for acclaiming me as the presidential candidate of the party for the 7th December 2020 general elections. I shall with God’s help, do everything within my power to justify your decision and lead this smooth deserving party to another victory in December. I accept this in all humility.”
