Accra, Aug. 24, GNA- Mr. Daniel Bugri Naabu, President of the Konkomba Development Association, at the weekend lauded the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), for selecting Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, the Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana, as the running mate for the December 7 polls.
He said Dr Mahamadu Bawumia is a true son of the North in particular and Ghana as a whole, hence the excitement of members of the association for the decision of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, to make him his running mate for the crucial General Election.
Mr Bugri Naabu, who is also an opinion leader in the North was speaking to journalists in Accra.
He said: "Wherever Konkombas are; whether in Brong Ahafo, Eastern or Ashanti regions, majority of them would respect the decision of the flagbearer, the National Executive Council and Council of Elders of the party for nominating Dr. Bawumia."
"Dr Bawumia is a popular choice and his nomination will propel NPP to victory," he said.
