Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has finally reacted to rumors that he has a second wife called Ramatu.
Dr. Bawumia through his spokesperson has debunked claims alleging that he has a second wife.
The issue of Ramatu always pops up during National events when the Speaker of Parliament is involved.
“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, ” part of the statement said.
Read the statement below;
“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.”
