Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, took the lead at the 6th Akwasidae celebration held at the historic Manhyia Palace.

The event, which transpired on September 3rd, saw Dr. Bawumia head a prominent government delegation in the company of esteemed dignitaries, including Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu Ababio, Nana Asantehemaa, and local chiefs.


The occasion brought together revered figures such as Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu Ababio, Nana Asantehemaa, chiefs, and an assembly of dignitaries from far and wide.

During this significant gathering, the Vice President took the opportunity to convey his heartfelt appreciation for the blessings bestowed upon him by Otumfuo during the Party’s Super Delegates Conference, which had taken place on August 26. Dr. Bawumia openly acknowledged the pivotal role that Otumfuo’s blessings had played in securing his victory during the conference.

“I came in peace, and today being Akwasidae, I came for a visit and to celebrate with him (Otumfuo). Again, I came here initially to ask for his blessing when I was going to contest for the flagbearership of the NPP. He blessed me, and God also blessed his blessing, which materialized for me to win the contest on August 26, 2023.”

The Vice President made it clear that his journey was more than just one of thanks. In order to prepare for the NPP’s presidential elections’ final round, when he will compete against four other contenders, he expressed his need for Otumfuo’s ongoing blessings and prayers.

We have another contest coming again on the 4th of November, where we are going to elect the flagbearer, and I still need his blessing. So, I came to ask for his blessing and inform him about it, that he may give me his blessings and show me the way to clinch victory. I thank you so much, and may God bless you.”

The upcoming final round, scheduled for November this year, will ultimately determine the official candidate of the NPP for the forthcoming presidential election, a crucial milestone in preparation for the 2024 general elections.
