President Akufo-Addo has assured members of the ruling New Patriotic Party of another victory in the 2020 elections.
According to the President, he will do everything possible to justify the party’s confidence in claiming him as its flagbearer again.
“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,” the President said at his acclaimation by the party in Accra on Saturday.
The President also affirmed Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia as his running mate for the polls.
” The rules of the electoral commission and the constitution of the Republic of Ghana requires that at the time of filing my nomination, I need to indicate the identity of my running mate. The constitution of our party provides in Article 13 (3) that the vice-presidential candidate shall be selected upon the nomination of the presidential candidate in consultation with the National Council.
“So today, I have the great honour to put in consultation with the members of the National Council my choice of running mate for the fourth time is the excellent, hardworking Vice President, Dr. Alhaji Mohamudu Bawumia”.
