Inusah Fuseini accuses Dr Bawumia of misrepresenting father’s death in political discourse

Former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini, has leveled serious accusations against Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, alleging that the VP fabricated details surrounding the demise of his own father, Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia.

During an interview on Citi TV on February 11, 2024, Fuseini, a former minister of lands and natural resources, challenged the authenticity of Dr. Bawumia’s account of his father’s passing, suggesting that Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia did not die from the conditions as portrayed by his son.

Fuseini emphatically stated, “Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia, who I knew very well, and I know Bawumia very well, did not die from anaemia. He didn’t die from anaemia. He died a natural death.”

The former legislator further questioned the credibility of Dr Bawumia’s statements, asserting that such falsifications erode public trust, a fundamental aspect of politics.

Citing instances of what he perceived as dishonesty on the part of the vice president, Fuseini referenced Dr. Bawumia’s previous comments during the 2016 election campaign regarding the end of the energy crisis (dumsor), juxtaposing them with recent claims made by the VP.

In contrast, during Dr. Bawumia’s presentation of his presidential vision to Ghanaians on February 9, 2024, he recounted the harrowing experience of losing his father due to the unavailability of blood for transfusion. Dr. Bawumia detailed how his family struggled to secure blood for his father’s medical emergency, ultimately leading to his father’s demise.

The vice president’s emotional anecdote formed part of his commitment to implementing medical drone delivery technology in Ghana, emphasizing the need to prevent avoidable deaths by ensuring timely access to essential medical supplies.

As accusations and counter-accusations continue to mark the political landscape, the veracity of Dr. Bawumia’s narrative remains a subject of contention, underscoring the significance of transparency and honesty in political discourse.
