Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as the NPP's 2020 Presidential Candidate and Vice Presidential Candidate respectively.

Equally, the party is thankful to the media as well as the men and women in uniform for their invaluable support for the party during Saturday's historic event.
This important exercise completes the NPP's 2020 Presidential ticket and signals the party's journey to yet another resounding victory on the 7th of December, 2020. The Akufo Addo-Bawumia ticket, undoubtedly, proves to be a trustworthy ticket with an unbeatable proven track record in terms of delivering on its social contract with the Ghanaian electorates.
It is the ticket that has, in just three and half years, delivered over 78% of its manifesto promises including its flagship intervention programmes such as the award winning free SHS policy, NABCO, 1D1F, 300 state of the art Ambulances, Planting for Food and Jobs, National ID system, mobile network interoperability, digital address system, paperless port regime, Zongo Development Fund, establishment of development authorities, restoration of teacher and nursing trainee allowance among several others.
Considering the amount of work that has been done by the Akufo Addo-led government in its first term even in the midst of all the challenges it inherited from the erstwhile incompetent Mahama administration, it certainly cannot be doubted that President Akufo-Addo and for that the NPP's presidential ticket is deserving of another term to complete the transformation agenda.
The party also wishes to use this occasion to congratulate H.E. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and H.E. Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on this historic milestone, which is a vindication of their exceptional performance.
One good term indeed deserves another, and so, the NPP and its leadership are very much confident that the Ghanaian people will yet again reward the Akufo Addo-Bawumia ticket and all our Parliamentary Candidates with yet another resounding victory come December 7, 2020.
Last but not least, the NPP wishes to use this opportunity to call on all Ghanaians to turn out in their numbers to participate in the EC's new voter registration exercise which begins on Tuesday, June 30, in order to make it possible for them to vote massively for President Akufo-Addo come December 7 for a job well done.
