President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs, Osagyefo Oseadeayo Agyemang Badu II, has asked the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, to select his running mate from either the Bono or Bono East Region.

Nana Agyemang Badu II, who is also the Omanhene of Dormaa Traditional Area, made the call during the Vice President’s courtesy call on the Bono Regional House of Chiefs as part of his tour to the region.

According to him, Bawumia’s choice of running mate selection may affect the support for him in the region should he prioritise others ahead of the Bono and Bono East regions.

“His Excellency, please I know very soon you will select your running mate. If you have selected too I haven’t heard…There are many people in most of the regions but if you are not careful and you focus on only some regions, they will vote for you but the rest of us will vote against you.

“His excellency the thing I will appeal is for Bono region to be remembered…I have seen you have come here with sons of the region,” he expressed.

He suggested some potential running mates from the region, including Martin Adjei Korsah, Ignatius Baffour Awuah, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, and Mahama Afful who should be considered by Dr Bawumia.

“…We in Bono region and to that extent Bono East have an interest in who you select as running mate…I will understand if it goes elsewhere but I will really thank you if it comes here,” he concluded.

Dormaahene praises Bawumia as ‘respectful’, ‘intelligent’ & ‘humble’
