Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, has added a new twist to the trending ‘ghost’ girlfriend of the vice president of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
Recall that whilst acknowledging dignitaries present after the swearing-in ceremony of Nana Addo on January 7th, the speaker mentioned one ‘Ramatu Bawumia’ as the spouse of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
It turned out to a huge error (although Mr. Bagbin later insisted the name was boldly written on a brochure for him), the opposition National Democratic Congress is making a mountain out of it.
The matter quickly gained a measure of prominence once again when some NDC MPs in the chamber of parliament during Nana Addo’s State of the Nation Address on Tuesday, March 9 started chanting ”we want Ramatu” after the speaker acknowledged the presence of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his wife, Samira Bawumia.
Responding to the chant of the minority MPs, Speaker Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin said “I don’t know which of your girlfriends is called Ramatu”.
