The office of the vice president, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia has finally broken its silence on posters of Dr. Bawumia around the country.
In a statement sighted by YEN.com.gh, the office of the vice president noted that it had taken notice of the proliferation of posters promoting Bawumia as the presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party in 2024.
The statement noted that the vice president had not given consent to these posters that have been splashed across the country and other activities involving him.
It however stated that Bawumia is solely focused on assisting President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to transform Ghana.
He, however, encouraged everyone's focus to be on this alone.
The statement was issued and signed by Bawumia's spokesperson, Gideon Baako on Thursday, March 24, 2021.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that posters of Vice-President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia announcing his interest to contest the 2024 presidency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party had been spotted in Madina.
YEN.com.gh realised that most parts of the Madina community in Accra were splashed with posters of the vice-president.
It is quite surprising to think that posters of the current vice president would be spotted in town less than three months into his second term.
As to whether or not those posters were coming from the camp of Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia,YEN.com.gh could not confirm.
Meanwhile, a leading member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, has lashed out at some cabinet ministers who are sneakily holding meetings to announce their presidential ambitions, barely four months into President Akufo-Addo’s second term.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, he expressed disgust at those ministers seeking to already succeed the president when governments across the world are battling the coronavirus pandemic, economic hardships among other excruciating social challenges.
