Ghana’s Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has confirmed to Ghanaontheglobe.com that he has only one wife and thus Second lady Samira Bawumia.
Bawumia has shut down the ambiguous rumour flying around that he has two wife and that Samira Bawumia is the second wife.
He added that he has been married to Samira Bawumia for 17 years and has remained faithful to her ever since marriage even though his religion permit him to marry more.
The minority caucus of Parliament are claiming that Bawumia has a first wife called Ramatu Bawumia.
Below is Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s press release:
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 a wife of the Vice-President.
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. 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 falsehood.
