Don’t choose your running mate under pressure – NPP group tells Bawumia


A pro-NPP group, the Asante Patriots Network-Diaspora, has cautioned its party’s flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, in his final choice of a running mate for the December 7 presidential election.

The group, in a statement sighted by peacefmonline.com, said the selection of a running mate will be crucial in the party’s aim of breaking the 8.

They expressed worry about an alleged approach being used by some running mate hopefuls.

‘We, the Asante Patriots Network-Diaspora (APN-D), are saddened by the attempts by Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh to use some constituency officers in the Ashanti Region to influence the selection of running mate by our Flagbearer, HE Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

‘The shameless desperation of paying monies to constituency executives to endorse him for the position is something that needs to be condemned by all, and we are surprised people are quiet in Ghana,’ the statement said.

The group further urged Dr Bawumia not to succumb to any form of pressure in choosing his running mate.
