Bawumia Shoots Down Islamic Funding Propaganda

Dr. Mahumud Bawumia

Vice President Bawumia has denied claims of being funded by any Islamic group.

It follows a vile post by one David Humdeyin, a journalist in Nigeria, that the Vice President’s campaign to be elected as the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general elections is being funded by some Islamic groups in Nigeria called the ACF.

A statement issued by the Communications Directorate of Dr. Bawumia’s campaign team said “we notice that the same narrative has been copied by some persons and groups in Ghana on social media,” insisting “this narrative is obviously false, fabricated, and only serves the propaganda purposes of its promoters.”

For the avoidance of doubt, the statement said “Bawumia Campaign has no funding or any linkage with any Islamic group in Nigeria or anywhere else.”

The team indicated that the said David Humdeyin has demonstrated a penchant for making similar claims against some persons and groups in Nigeria without any basis whatsoever.

That notwithstanding, the Bawumia campaign team said it “is focused and will not be distracted by such vain untruths,” insisting that “the Vice President,  Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been very diligent and transparent from his days as a scholar, banker, and politician throughout his life and will not depart from these now and forever.”
