The Paramount Chief of Agona Nyakrom Traditional Area in the Agona West Municipality of the Central Region has described President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's selection of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as his running mate and now Vice President as an inspired decision.
Speaking at his palace on Friday, May 17, 2019, Okatakyie Okofo Nyarku Eku X said Dr. Bawumia had more than vindicated the President in the relatively short period he had been in office.
The President, Okatakyie Eku said, could not have made a better choice.
The Omanhene of Nyakrom made these remarks when the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, called on him as part of his nationwide 2019 Ramadan Tour.
"I knew your father, I know you and I know your brothers. I know what you are capable of doing." President Akufo-Addo could not have made a better choice, and truly, you are delivering.
The Vice President had earlier joined Muslims to pray at the Nyarkrom Mosque. Vice President Bawumia will also visit and pray with Muslim faithfuls in the Central, Western and Western North regions.
He was accompanied by the Minister for Inner City and Zongo Development, Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid; Minister of State at the Office of the Vice President, Mr. Boniface Abubakar Saddique; Central Region Minister, Mr. Kwamena Duncan; MP for Agona West and Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Mrs Cynthia Morrison; NPP National Chairman, Mr. Freddie Blay; Central Region NPP Chairman, Mr Robert Kutin Jnr and other party and government officials.
