H. E Dr Alhaji Mahmudu Bawumia the Vice president is said to had taken his visit to the Northern region, where he met Party Executives from six constituencies in Tamale yesterday.
At the meeting is said to had made a statement which incite his fellow Northerners against Akans.
In their local dialect to explain why it was critical for all Northern Delegates to unite behind Alhaji Bawumia to become the first Muslim Northerner to be elected Presidential Candidate regardless of whether or not it will help us win 2024 elections.
He maliciously took the opportunity to prove to them about how the Akans in the NPP hate Northern Muslims and thus offer them ”dirty jobs” in government.
To back his claim Dr Bawumia sighted the Supreme Court case when he was put in the witness box for the whole world to see and that if it had not gone well, he would have been easy target.
Furthermore, Dr Bawumia sought to rubbish the role of the Vice President as a dirty job that NPP has found convenient to give out to Northerners because basically there is nothing to do as Vice President unless the President assigns you something to do.
“it is “Yes Sir (Yesa), Master (Massa) job”. he said
At the meeting all phones of participats were taken away by the Regional Secretary and they were frisked searched to ensure no information leaks.
Speaking in local dialect, Alhaji said “my brothers and sisters, you have me, an example of a man who the NPP has used to do a very dirty job as Vice President. If you do not help me to become flagbearer then that is the end of us. We shall continue to do that dirty job for the Akans who have no respect for us”
Sammi Awuku and some other Akans who were part of the delegation could not hear whatever went on there as they could not understand the language.
Participation were given Ghc100each as a token after the meeting.
