This was done in consonance with Article 13 (2) (1) of the NPP’s constitution that provides for an acclamation when there is a sole presidential candidate at the close of nominations.
''I thank the Party for the belief and confidence you have showed in me, thank you for your trust in me to lead the NPP to an unquestionable and resounding victory at the elections in December, just as we did four (4) years ago in December 2016.''
“I will do everything on my part to justify the decision and lead the Party to another victory in December…I respect in all humility your decision,” President Akufo-Addo told the members of the National Council of the Party after his endorsement.
The National Council of the NPP also acclaimed Vice President Bawumia as Running Mate for December's Presidential election, and the official confirmation of the formidable partnership marked a historic landmark in Ghanaian politics, as no pair has ever vied for presidential office on four successive occasions.
