IGNORE FABRICATED RAMATU STORY
The Office of the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia,
has reacted to reports and pictures of a woman, Ramatu Bawumia,
who is alleged to be the Vice President’s first wife.
According to Dr Bawumia, the public should ignore such reports because they are false.
“The office of the Vice President wishes to inform the general public that
the Vice President, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has never met or
seen this purported Ramatu, let alone take her as a wife”.
This was contained in a press statement signed by Spokesperson to
the Vice President, Dr Gideon Boako, dated March 12, 2021.
The statement reads:
“IGNORE FABRICATED RAMATU STORY” “The attention of the office
of the vice-president has been drawn to stories and pictures circulating
of a woman supposedly named “Ramatu” who is being claimed as the
wife of the vice-president. The office of the vice president wishes to inform
the general public that the vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia,
has never met or seen this purported Ramatu let alone take her as
a wife she is a figment of the imagination of people trying hard to
tarnish the image of the vice president for their own purposes.
For the avoidance of doubt, the vice president has only one wife,
his dear Samira Bawumia and they have been married for 17 years
even though his religion permits him to marry up to four wives.
We ask the public to ignore the propaganda and deliberate false”
