NPP Group Appeals To Dr Bawumia To Select John Kumah As Running Mate

A group calling itself Patriotic Youth For NPP in the Savannah Region is appealing to the Vice   President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia to appoint Dr. John Kumah, the Member of Parliament for Ejuso, as the running mate for the December 2024 elections.

The group asserts that a partnership between Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia and Lawyer Dr. John Ampontuah Kumah would significantly bolster the party’s electoral prospects in the upcoming polls.

Alhassan Haruna, the leader of the group, conveyed their stance to the media, citing several reasons to support their endorsement.

“He possesses a wealth of knowledge, adept communication skills, legal expertise, and financial acumen. Dr. Kumah embodies the ideal qualities of a running mate. His deep-rooted connections within the grassroots, coupled with his widespread popularity among all strata of the party, reinforce his suitability for the role.”

Haruna further emphasized, “As a youthful figure, his selection would invigorate the spirit of volunteerism among the party’s youth base. Additionally, his affable nature extends his appeal across various demographics, including the Christian community, where his esteemed wife, Reverend Mrs. Lilian Kumah, garners admiration.”
