The Presidential candidate of the NPP, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, has introduced his running mate Dr Mahamadu Bawumia to the Asanteman Council.
At a colourful ceremony in the Manhyia Palace, Nana Addo asked Asanteman to continue to support the party by turning out in their numbers to vote massively, come December 7.
Nana Addo renewed a promise made four years ago to upgrade the Kumasi Airport to international standard.
Nana Addo said his choice of Dr Bawumia as his running mate for the second time is to bring unity in diversity.
He explained that he Nana Addo being a Christian from the south, it was prudent to choose somebody who is from the north and a Muslim to partner him.
Nana asked Asanteman to continue to support the party to win the December general election.
He was grateful for the support he received last four years from the Ashanti region in terms of electoral votes but like Oliver Twist, Nana Addo asked for more.
