As the National Patriotic Party (NPP) gears up for the upcoming presidential race in Ghana, all eyes are on Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the party's presidential candidate.
One of the most critical decisions he faces is selecting a running mate who will complement his leadership and help secure a successful campaign.
Sources close to the campaign suggest that two prominent names have emerged in the grapevine for this pivotal role: Pentecostal Apostle Professor Kwadwo Nimfour Opoku Onyinah and the heavily backed candidate of the Manhyia Palace, Matthew Opoku Prempeh.
Both candidates bring unique strengths and qualities to the table.

He holds a Doctorate in Theology, and his leadership in the church has touched the lives of millions.
Apostle Onyinah is regarded as a unifying figure who has consistently advocated for peaceful coexistence among Ghanaians, regardless of their religious affiliations or backgrounds.
His potential role as Vice President would not only bring spiritual guidance but also a dedication to moral values that could resonate with a significant portion of the electorate.
Matthew Opoku Prempeh:
Matthew Opoku Prempeh, a seasoned politician with a strong educational background, has been a prominent figure in Ghanaian politics for years.
He has represented the Manhyia South Constituency and has served as the Minister of Education, where he played a key role in implementing various educational policies aimed at improving the quality of Ghana's education system.
Additionally, Opoku Prempeh enjoys the backing and endorsement of the Manhyia Palace, which holds a special place in the hearts of the Ashanti people.
As an experienced politician, Opoku Prempeh has demonstrated his ability to navigate the intricacies of governance and policymaking.

Dr. Bawumia's decision on his running mate will be a crucial one, impacting the dynamics of the NPP's campaign and the future of Ghana.
Both candidates, Apostle Onyinah and Matthew Opoku Prempeh, offer distinct but valuable qualities. The choice ultimately comes down to the type of leadership and vision Dr. Bawumia envisions for Ghana.
