Dr Mustapha Abdul Hamid, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), says the Minister of Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia partnership will help the New Patriotic Party (NPP) secure the 2024 elections.
He believes the Energy Minister is the ideal candidate to be chosen as the running mate.
Amongst other things, he cited Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, popularly known as Napo’s long-standing association with the party, and deep understanding of its ideologies, and principles as qualities that make him well-suited for the role.
Dr. Hamid stressed that Dr. Opoku Prempeh has proven political acumen and adds great political value to the party, making him a compelling candidate that should not be neglected.
“The candidate won’t ask for my opinion, but if he were to ask my opinion that all the names that have been thrown around who will give us political value and political capital, I would say Matthew Opoku Prempeh.
“First of all, he is a political colossus in our tradition. He has been a political participant in our political tradition for ages.”
“So he knows the party well and knows our philosophies and principles of our party. The other thing is that, ever since he held political office, he has accomplished. I was in cabinet with him and for the four years that we were in cabinet, he at the Ministry of Education tabled and passed the most reforming laws,” he told JoyNews.
