The National Youth Wing of the governing New Patriotic Party has urged their presidential candidate, H.E. Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to select Energy Minister and Member of Parliament for Manhyia South Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, popularly known as NAPO, as his Running Mate.
In an article written by Deputy National Youth Organizer of the NPP, Isaac Jay Nii Amahtey Hyde, under the caption “Ensuing Debate of Who Best Pairs DMB”, said the arduous task of “breaking the 8” does not just require a candidate that adds to the numbers but one with a demonstrable track record and capacity to get things done.

“One that answers the concerns of Ghanaians today, just like our current flagbearer resonated with voters in 2016 and 2020 on matters of the Economy. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has demonstrated overtime is ability to cause change and deliver when it matters most. As a National Officer of the party, I’ve touched base with the grassroots and there’s no one in the NPP today, whose charisma energizes the base than Napo”, he wrote.
The youth leader continued; “Bold and Decisive; His assertive nature makes him unconventional to what is ordinarily perceived of our politicians “sweet talkers”. Napo is blunt and very trustworthy. Engagement and Negotiation Skills; Napo’s ability to listen well and engage extensively has endeared him to various stakeholders. Throughout my service with him as NUGS President and as far as I remember, there was never a strike by any group within the sector”.
“He (NAPO) successfully delivered our major policy headliner in the last two National elections ie. Free SHS. He has something relatable to account for his stewardship. The implementation of the Double Track concept to ensure that no Ghanaian child was left behind in the FSHS agenda was a master stroke.
“He led the successful transition of in-person classroom teaching to online successfully in the advent of the COVID pandemic, at a time when online infrastructure and capacity of lecturers in most schools was almost nonexistent. His ingenuity led the GETFUND securitization that provided the needed funds for infrastructure development to mitigate facility user challenges that initially bedeviled this brilliant initiative“, he added.
Nii Amahtey Hyde exclaimed; “Napo is simply a doer!”
