The Paramount Chief of Agona Nyakrom Traditional Area in the Agona West Municipality of the Central Region, has described President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s selection of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as his running mate and now Vice-President, as an inspired decision.

Speaking at his palace on Friday, 17 May 2019, Okatakyie Okofo Nyarku Eku X, said Dr Bawumia, in the relatively short period he had been in office, had more than vindicated the President’s decision to choose him.

The President, Okatakyie Eku said, could not have made a better choice.

The Omanhene of Nyakrom made these remarks when Dr Bawumia called on him as part of his nationwide 2019 Ramadan Tour.

“I knew your father, I know you and I know your brothers. I know what you are capable of doing. President Akufo-Addo could not have made a better choice, and truly, you are delivering.

“May the Almighty continue to bless you and President Akufo-Addo as you do your best to develop Ghana”, the Omanhene said.

The Vice-President had earlier joined the faithful to pray at the Nyarkrom Mosque.

He is set to visit and pray with the Muslim faithful in the Central, Western and Western North regions in Phase Two of his 2019 Ramadan Tour.

He was accompanied by the Minister of Inner-city and Zongo Development, Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid; Minister of State at the Office of the Vice-President, Boniface Abubakar Saddique; Central Regional Minister Kwamena Duncan; MP for Agona West and Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection, Mrs Cynthia Morrison; NPP National Chairman Freddie Blay; Central Regional NPP Chairman Robert Kutin Jnr., and other party and government officials.
