Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has pledged to never take for granted the trust President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reposed in him.
Speaking at the acclamation ceremony of President Akufo-Addo at the Alisa Hotel in Accra, Dr. Bawumia expressed gratitude for being chosen as the President’s running mate for the fourth time.
While appreciating President Akufo-Addo for putting his faith in him, Dr. Bawumia said “This day is historic because it has never happened before in the history of our country that a presidential candidate will select the same running mate four times in a row, it has never happened before.”
“His Excellency the President selected me in 2008 against all odds. In 2012, in 2016 and now in 2020. This tells you about the man Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that I have come to know over the last few years. He is a strong leader, he is a caring leader, a god fearing leader, a trustworthy leader,” he added.
Dr. Bawumia promised President Akufo-Addo that he will “never take the trust and loyalty you have reposed in me for granted. It has been a privilege and an honour working with you and I thank you for giving me another opportunity.”
President Akufo-Addo was today, June 27, acclaimed as the NPP’s flagbearer for the upcoming December 7 elections and nominated Dr. Bawumia as his running mate.
