The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party, John Boadu, has described as “trustworthy ticket with an unbeatable proven track record”, the party’s pair of flagbearer and running mate for the 2020 general election.

The NPP over the weekend acclaimed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia as the party’s flagbearer and running mate for this year’s election.

Mr Boadu, in a statement, after the acclamation, said the Akufo-Addo and Bawumia ticket will deliver a resounding victory for the party following their outstanding performance in government.

“The Akufo Addo-Bawumia ticket, undoubtedly, proves to be a trustworthy ticket with an unbeatable proven track record in terms of delivering on its social contract with the Ghanaian electorate.

“It is the ticket that has, in just three and half years, delivered over 78 per cent of its manifesto promises, including its flagship intervention programmes such as the award-winning free SHS policy, NABCO, 1D1F, 300 state-of-the-art ambulances, Planting for Food and Jobs, National ID system, mobile network interoperability, digital address system, paperless port regime, Zongo Development Fund, establishment of development authorities, restoration of teacher and nursing trainee allowance among several others,” Mr Boadu said.

One good term…

Mr Boadu added that, considering the amount of work that has been done by the government in its first term, even in the midst of all the challenges it inherited from the erstwhile ‘incompetent’ Mahama administration, it cannot be doubted that President Akufo-Addo is deserving of another term to complete the transformation agenda.

“One good term indeed deserves another, and so, the NPP and its leadership are very much confident that the Ghanaian people will yet again reward the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia ticket and all our Parliamentary Candidates with yet another resounding victory come December 7, 2020,” he added.


He extended the gratitude of the party to God and all those who graced the acclamation programme.

“The NPP is also grateful to former President John Agyekum Kufour for his attendance and the nuggets of wisdom he shared with the party’s rank and file and the Ghanaian people in general.

“Equally, the party is thankful to the media as well as the men and women in uniform for their invaluable support for the party during Saturday’s historic event,” he noted.

He called on all Ghanaians to turn out in their numbers to participate in the EC’s new voters’ registration exercise which begins from today.
