Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the Majority Leader in Parliament, has issued a stern warning to his NPP colleagues and party supporters to avoid disputes amid media reports suggesting that NPP Flagbearer Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has selected Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh as his running mate.

With approximately six months until the elections, the decision on Dr. Bawumia’s running mate remains under review.

Afenyo-Markin emphasized the importance of party unity, stating that maintaining cohesion would benefit the NPP more than internal disagreements over the running mate selection.

He urged NPP MPs to be cautious with their public comments and expressions regarding the selection process, highlighting the need for solidarity within the party.

Background

On June 26, reports emerged that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), had consulted President Nana Akufo-Addo about his choice of running mate for the December 7 presidential election.

According to these reports, a meeting took place at Jubilee House on Tuesday night where Dr. Bawumia presented Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, also known as NAPO, as his preferred running mate.

President Akufo-Addo offered advice and shared his thoughts but ultimately accepted Dr. Bawumia’s choice.
