Sam Pee Yalley, a staunch member of the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress has accused Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of having turned the Flagstaff House into a mosque.
Yalley, who is Ghana's former High Commissioner to India, noted that the New Patriotic Party was being hypocritical in some instances.
He noted that, during the tenure of the late President John Evans Atta Mills of having changed the official seat of government into a Flagstaff House.
"You remember when Professor Mills was praying in the castle; there was all these hullabaloo that he was turning the castle into a church", he recounted.
But he revealed that from indications, Dr. Bawumia was also now turning the Flagstaff House into a muslim place of worship.
Yalley said that he was not against the Muslim religion, but every "...evening, people have to go and break their fast; if I was Bawumia, I will not do a thing like that; I would rather go to the poor areas of Fadama, Zongo to go and break my fast with the people there".
The former commissioner noted that Bawumia was participating in "religious bigotry" by doing exactly what the NPP was consistently accusing the NDC for.
"You cannot also turn the flagstaff house into a mosque", Yalley chastised Dr. Bawumia.
