‘Economic Prophet’ Bawumia receives overwhelming endorsement as Akufo-Addo’s record running mate

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has received overwhelming endorsement by the National Council of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as the running mate of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the December 7 elections.

This follows the acclamation of Mr Akufo-Addo on Saturday, June 27 as the ruling party’s presidential nominee for the elections.

President Akufo-Addo proposed his choice to the Council with glowing tribute to his vice president.

He showered on Dr Bawumia accolades such as ‘Mr Digital’, ‘Mr You & I Were Not There’, ‘The Economic Prophet’ and ‘Walewale Adam Smith’.

After the overwhelming acceptance of Mr Akufo-Addo’s decision, a record for the party, Dr Bawumia expressed gratitude to his leader for sticking with him since 2008.

He admitted that the four-time flagbearer of the NPP could have dropped him in 2012 and in 2016 after they lost the 2008 elections in the second round to the Atta Mills-Mahama National Democratic Congress (NDC) ticket.

“Mr President, I will never take the trust and confidence you have reposed in me for granted,” he told the partisan gathering at the Alisa Hotel in Accra.
