The Council of Zongo Chiefs has urged NPP Flagbearer, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to select Energy Minister and MP for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh as his Running Mate.
At a Special Quran Recitation & Prayers to Allah for the New Patriotic Party’s victory in the 2024 general elections on Friday, 19th January, 2024 at Kantudu behind the Kumasi Central Mosque held after Magrib prayers, the Zongo Chiefs prayed for Dr. Bawumia to select Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh and according to the chiefs, the Minister is the best partner for Dr. Bawumia to take Ghana to the next level.
Speaking on behalf of the prayer congregation after the Quran recitation, Chief of Frafra and President of Council of Zongo Chiefs, Alhaji Musah said; “It is our wish that Dr. Bawumia will be sworn in as President come 7th January, 2025 with Dr. NAPO as his Vice President. I know that our toil tonight in this recitation will not be in vain.”
He continued; “Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh is our brother and we ask Dr. Bawumia who himself is a Zongo boy to select him for them to take Ghana forward.”
This endorsement and prayer by the Council of Zongo Chiefs, according to political pundits, is a testament of the national appeal for the Energy Minister who, according to history, was named after an Asante Islamic Cleric called Nana Poku, hence the name “NAPO”.
Dr. Prempeh is also on record to have been preaching the need for people to be voted for based on competence, a recipe for national cohesion and unity devoid of unnecessary religious sentiments.
