“Stop your irresponsible campaign and commiserate with your people” – NDC tells Bawumia

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the North East region has chided Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia over his failure to cut short his regional campaign and commiserate with bereaved families in his hometown who have lost family members and properties in the recent heavy downpour and spillage of the Bagri Dam from Burkina Faso.

Dr Bawumia begun his tour of the five Northern regions on Friday, 5th September, 2020 where he has been addressing durbar of chiefs and people at various destinations.

NADMO officials confirmed several lives have been lost to the recent floods and heavy down in some parts of the five Northern regions including some communities in the Bunkpurugu/Nakpanduri district, East and West Mamprusi districts of the North East region.

But the NDC in a statement issued by the party’s North East Regional Communications Officer, Imoro Abdul Razak extended their heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families in the disaster whilst taking a dig at the Veep.

Mr Razak also chastised the Vice President for rather rebuking former President and flagbearer of the NDC for sharing the controversial “Akyeme Sakawa Boy” Facebook post.

“But, it is interesting to note that, with all this unqualified debilitating devastations the Vice President of the Republic His Excellency Dr Mahamud Bawumia, a son of the Region has not heard and equally has not seen on television what his people are going through,” the statement said.

It added “[he] seen energetically touring the Northern Region and shamefully and regrettably stoking ethnic sentiments against his Senior Brother the Former President His Excellency John Dramani Mahama for sharing a post of an MP on Facebook which described certain corrupt elements perpetrating broad day corrupt activities in the Akufo Addo government as “Akyeme Sakawa boys”.”

STOP THE IRRESPONSIBLE AND CALLOUS TOUR AND COMMISERATE WITH YOUR PEOPLE – Vice President Dr Mahamud Bawumia.

The attention of the National Democratic Congress has been drawn to the havoc wreaked by the recent torrential rainfalls in the north, causing varying degrees of damage to property and in some cases loss of lives.


The appeal of Nadmo in the region to government after the spillage of the Bagre Dam in Burkina Faso Early August, fell on death ears. A letter sighted by the NDC in the region confirms this.

We are by this release extending our heartfelt and sincerest commiserations;

(1). To the families in Bunkpurugu who lost three able persons sometime last week in the Bunkpurugu/Nakpanduri District.

(2) The families in Langbinsi and Janga who lost their loved ones three days ago, in the East Mamprusi and West Mamprusi districts respectively and lastly, only on Friday 5th of September 2 farmers drowned on the white Volta in an attempt to rescue lives and property.

In all these, precious lives have been lost, houses and homes with valuables flooded, displacement of helpless people, cutting off of communities and hectares of land of ready- to- harvest corn and other grains submerged in the flood waters of the torrential rains as well as the Bagre Dam spillage.

But, it is interesting to note that, with all this unqualified debilitating devastations the Vice President of the Republic His Excellency Dr Mahamud Bawumia, a son of the Region has not heard and equally has not seen on television what his people are going through.

But seen energetically touring the Northern Region and shamefully and regrettably stoking ethnic sentiments against his Senior Brother the Former President His Excellency John Dramani Mahama for sharing a post of an MP on Facebook which described certain corrupt elements perpetrating broad day corrupt activities in the Akufo Addo government as “Akyeme Sakawa boys”.

But in same vain he hypocritically failed to fight for the people of WALEWALE when he was referred to as “WALEWALE Adam Smith”, but for political expediency Dr Mahamud Bawumia has become more of an Akyeme and less a Walewale indigene.

In the light of the above we are calling on the Vice President to stop the irresponsible and inhuman campaign tour and called on the bereaved families to commiserate with them for their loss. We further appeal to Nadmo to as a matter of urgency respond to the cries of the people of the North East Region as a matter of duty and national.
Thank You.
