Bawumia secured a resounding victory in the NPP presidential primaries on November 4, 2023, by securing 61.43% of the total votes
In a heartwarming display of support and celebration, presidential staffers and other dedicated individuals at the Vice President’s office came together to organise a surprise event in honour of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
The jubilant gathering of the presidential staffers marked the Vice President’s triumphant emergence as the flagbearer in the recently concluded New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primaries.
The event, which took place on Monday, November 6, 2023, unfolded on the forecourt of Jubilee House and was characterised by a well-executed guard of honour and a delightful bouquet presentation.
A touching moment from the gathering was captured in video footage shared by Joy News, where the heartfelt show of support visibly took aback Bawumia as he stepped out of his car.
Bawumia’s triumph in the NPP presidential primaries was resounding, as he secured a significant 61.43% of the total votes. His campaign had projected over 70% of total votes, however.
His closest rival, Kennedy Agyapong, received 37.41% of the vote share, with the other two contestants, Dr Afriyie Akoto and Francis Addai-Nimoh, securing 0.75% and 0.41%, respectively.
At the Jubilee House on Monday, the presidential staffers predominantly wore white attire, symbolising victory and were united in their celebration of Dr Bawumia’s significant achievement.
In his gracious address to the assembled group, the Vice President extended his heartfelt gratitude and underscored the collective efforts that had contributed to his victory.
“I want to thank all of you for the hard work and support that you have given me in this journey to become the flagbearer and presidential candidate of the great New Patriotic Party.”
He went on to acknowledge the relentless dedication and hard work of his team.
