A group known as ‘Friends of Bawumia’ has accused certain members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of orchestrating the booing incident aimed at vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia during the inauguration of the Teshie McDan Sports Complex.
According to chairman of the group’s Ledzorkuku constituency wing, B.K. Ayensu, the residents actually welcomed the vice president warmly during the event on Saturday, September 30, 2023.
Despite videos circulating on social media showing constituents expressing disapproval for Dr. Bawumia and President Akufo-Addo, the group contends that their investigations reveal the booing incident was coordinated by prominent NDC members, including MP Benjamin Ayiku.
“Nana Akufo-Addo, we are suffering…? We will express our frustration.”
“From our investigation, the MP, Hon. Benjamin Ayiku with his constituency NDC chairman organized residents from our neighboring constituency (Krowor) to do this untoward act,” the Chairman said.
Mr Ayensu emphasized that Vice President Bawumia was genuinely embraced by the people of Teshie during the Sports Complex’s commissioning, fostering an atmosphere of optimism and contributing to the constituency’s historical legacy.
He also praised Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye for his significant role in the area’s development.
