Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has denied claims that he has another wife named Ramatu.
This claim of Dr. Bawumia having another wife by name Ramatu, was triggered after the Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin mentioned the name of the unknown Ramatu instead of 2nd Lady Samira Bawumia while acknowledging her presence during the swearing-in of President Akufo-Addo for his second term on January 7, 2021.
Then again during Tuesday’s State of the Nation Address by the President, the name then surfaced in parliament through the Minority caucus when the Speaker attempted acknowledging the wife of the Vice President.
But in a statement released on Friday, 12th March, 2021 and signed by Gideon Boako, Spokesperson for the Vice President, stated that Dr Bawumia has never been married to any woman aside his wife, the second lady.
