In a Facebook post after the unveiling event, Dr Bawumai said “Along with National Chairman Stephen Ayesu Ntim, General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong, other National Executives and a broad section of the rank and file of the New Patriotic Party (NPP: Development in Freedom), I accompanied H.E. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to Manhyia Palace, Kumasi, where he formally presented the NPP Presidential ticket (Myself and my Running Mate, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh) for the 2024 Presidential Elections, to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II today.

“We were subsequently introduced by the President formally to the Party at a mini rally at the Jubilee Park. With the NPP ticket complete, it is time, now more than ever, for us to close ranks and work assiduously to ensure resounding victory in the coming polls.
