The statement said the Vice President attended the event after he got win of information that the former president would be president.
Dr. Bawumia was originally attending an assignment in the North, the statement said.
The former president speaking at the event said he was pleased that the second gentleman of the land made time to attend the event despite his tight schedule.
The statement further explained that Mr. Kufour disclosed he had always been close to the Vice President and treated him like a true son.
“There is nothing political about his remarks or even the occasion.
President Kufour wants people to know that the other much talked-about prospective NPP flagbearership candidates, like Alan Kyeremanten, Boakye Agyarko, Joe Ghartey, and Dr. Owusu Afriyie, all have close relationships with him,” the statement explained.
