Ignore the rumours, I’m not working to be Bawumia’s Veep- Napo

The Minister of Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has tasked Ghanaians to ignore the speculations of his alleged intentions to serve as a running mate to Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia should the latter contest and win in the ruling New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearership race, ahead of the 2024 elections. reports.

Speaking on Kumasi-based Pure FM in an exclusive interview with Kwame Adinkrah on March 20, 2023, Napo as he is affectionately called declared in an unequivocal tone that he believes in the competence of Dr. Bawumia to lead Ghana, hence, his selfless effort in trumpeting his capabilities.

He beckoned that he serves as the Energy Minister and Member of Parliament for Manhyia South, which remains his primary focus and so he is not working to earn the admiration of the Vice-President.

“Kwame, I have also heard it on radio and on social media that I am aiming at serving as Dr. Bawumia’s vice hence, my constant crusade in telling Ghanaians the competence of Dr. Bawumia.

Ghanaians should ignore these rumours. Vice-President position is not a birth right nor is it an elected position.

The person under discussion has not even declared his bid to lead the NPP as its flagbearer, so tell me, why will I sit here and think or harbour that vision of serving as his veep.”

“I serve as the Minister of Energy, that is my primary focus. However, I believe in the competence of our Vice-President and Ghanaians must know these qualities of his. Simple.

I am not working to become his running mate.” Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh retorted.
