Diaspora Patriotic Forum polls favor NAPO as Bawumia’s running mate

The Diaspora Patriotic Forum (DPF), a New Patriotic Party (NPP) think tank abroad, recently conducted a comprehensive week-long opinion poll regarding the NPP’s potential vice presidential candidate for the 2024 elections.

Utilizing the secure Survey Monkey Polls tool, 621 participants took part in the survey, revealing a notable preference for Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, also known as Napo, as the favored running mate to Dr. Bawumia.

Among the 620 respondents, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh secured a commanding 42.42% of the vote, receiving 263 votes. This significant support was evident among NPP sympathizers, external branch members, and executives worldwide. Following behind were Dr. Osei Yaw Adutwum (23.23%), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong (12.58%), and others, with 2.10% indicating a preference for none of the listed candidates.

The reasons behind the respondents’ preferences provided insights into their priorities. A notable 29.15% emphasized the importance of selecting a candidate who complements Dr. Bawumia, bringing political experience and innovative ideas to the ticket.

Additionally, 21.34% highlighted the candidate’s ability to attract floating voters as a crucial factor. Interestingly, religious and gender balance were not significant considerations among the diaspora NPP support base.

The poll results, coupled with in-depth discussions with external branch executives and members, strongly suggest that Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the current Minister for Energy and Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, is the preferred NPP vice presidential candidate in the diaspora.

The survey aligns with the Diaspora Patriotic Forum’s commitment to providing a platform for NPP members and sympathizers to express their opinions on party matters and national development affairs.

While the ultimate decision rests with NPP presidential candidate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the overwhelming support for Napo expressed by the diaspora NPP community adds a significant dimension to the party’s considerations for the 2024 general elections.

The DPF serves as a voluntary think tank for the New Patriotic Party in the diaspora, providing credible and reliable information, education, policies, and research to support the wider political agenda of the NPP.
