DR. MATTHEW Opoku Prempeh aka ‘Napo’, the Energy Minister, was welcomed by residents of Kumasi with “our incoming Vice President chants” on Monday.

Napo, who doubles as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia South, has been heavily tipped by political experts to partner Dr. Bawumia for the December polls.

Majority of NPP members, especially leading members of the party, have also thrown their support for Napo to partner Dr. Bawumia to snatch a resounding victory.

Kennedy Agyapong, who contested for the NPP flagbearer position and lost, has stated that he would only campaign for the party if Napo is made Dr. Bawumia’s running mate.

On Monday, Napo accompanied Dr. Bawumia to Kumasi for a three-day campaign tour in the Ashanti Region and wherever they visited Napo was given a rousing welcome.

“Napo is our incoming vice president, Napo is our incoming vice president” was heard all over the places Dr. Bawumia’s campaign team visited in the boisterous city.

Interestingly, Napo has not commented about the possibility of him being picked as Dr. Bawumia’s running mate so far even though the topic is all over in the media.

Sources from Napo’s camp have said the Energy Minister’s main ambition is to help Dr. Bawumia to lead the NPP to retain power and lead Ghana to the Promised Land.

Napo, clearly, is the best performing minister in the President Nana Akufo-Addo’s administration, having performed exceptionally well in two crucial ministries.

For instance, Napo worked assiduously to introduce the NPP government’s flagship programme, the free Senior High School (SHS) policy few months in government.

The Manhyia South Lawmaker, who is very intelligent and hard working, has also lived up to expectations by stabilizing power supply as the Energy Minister, so far.
