Vice president Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has been selected for the fourth time as running mate to President Akufo Addo for the upcoming elections in December.
In giving his appreciation remarks, Dr Bawumia said he is eternally happy and grateful to be chosen again as running mate, promising that he will do everything within his power to ensure that the NPP is retained.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Akufo has officially been acclaimed as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential candidate for the 2020 polls.
President Akufo-Addo was the sole candidate who filed his nomination to contest in the 2020 Presidential Primaries for the NPP.
The acclamation of the Presidential Candidate was done at a special National Council meeting of the Party held at the Alisa Hotel in Accra today, June 26, 2020.
The acclamation was preceded by a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) on Friday.
Article 13 (2) (1) of the NPP Constitution provides for acclamation where there is a sole candidate for the Presidency by the close of nominations.
President Akufo-Addo would have been acclaimed with the full party’s congress in attendance, but the novel coronavirus pandemic has made this impossible.
The acclamation, therefore, happened before a National Council instead.
