Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Ghana’s Energy Minister, expressed deep gratitude and humility after being named the running mate for Mahamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential candidate, in the upcoming 2024 elections.

His nomination was unanimously endorsed by the party’s National Council on Thursday, marking a significant moment in Ghana’s political landscape.

“I am deeply honoured today as the chosen running mate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). I am humbled to be nominated by our distinguished flagbearer, H.E. Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and endorsed unanimously by the National Council,” Opoku Prempeh stated. He emphasised his commitment to supporting Bawumia in realizing a vision to propel Ghana to greater heights.

Prempeh, who hails from the NPP stronghold of the Ashanti Region and has a notable background in both medicine and politics, sees this nomination as a divine calling.

“I view this nomination as part of God’s plan for my life, and I am grateful for His guidance in directing my path. I consider this nomination as a call to higher service, a call to sacrifice, and a duty to perform,” he said in a statement issued after his announcement.

Expressing gratitude towards the National Council and President Nana Akufo-Addo, Prempeh acknowledged the trust and confidence placed in him, saying: “I express my gratitude to the National Council, the rank-and-file of our party, and our esteemed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for their unwavering support and faith in me.”

Prempeh also highlighted the collective effort required for the upcoming electoral campaign, urging party members to join hands in their pursuit of a prosperous nation. He said: “I understand that the task ahead requires our collective effort, and I, therefore, plead with every party member to come on board as we seek the mandate of our countrymen and women once again to serve them.”

As the campaign gears up, Prempeh remains committed to breaking the eight-year election cycle and diligently serving Ghana. “As I assume the role of running mate alongside my esteemed boss, H.E. Dr. Bawumia, I am committed to supporting him to prosecute a formidable 2024 campaign. Let us work together towards a brighter future for Ghana.”

With a firm belief in service and leadership, Prempeh concluded his statement by invoking divine blessings upon Ghana. “My philosophies remain service and leadership. May God bless our Homeland, Ghana. Thank you.”

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh’s nomination is expected to bring a strategic advantage to the NPP’s campaign, especially with his strong roots in the Ashanti Region, an area crucial for the party’s electoral success.
