Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia’s reputation as one who peddles untruth is getting out of hand with his latest episode happening Sangbakar, a village in the Sissala West District of the Upper West Region after he reportedly tried to usurp a 3-unit classroom block for the Akufo Addo administration.
Incidentally, the classroom block was donated to the people by an NGO, Whatsup News gathered.
A native of the town, in halting English, has expressed bewilderment over how the Vice President could claim his government built the 3 unit classroom block in question when the donor, Vibrant Village Foundation, has its name emblazoned on the gift to the village.
The plaque on the school reads: “Sangbaka 3 unit classroom block funded by the Vibrant Village Foundation NGO.”
“We in Sangbaka here, we are suffering about so many things. And fortunately, one NGO came, came and helped us about building this 3 classroom unit room and we don’t know-how came by, the Vice President, His Excellency, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia was talking about it that this building was built by NPP,” the angry resident complained.
“When we even used our own energy to build these rooms as the teachers quarters, we were even begging about them (NPP Government) to help us; cement and all these things, they refused,” said the native who was interviewed by a group of Ghanaian youths who went to Sangbaka to fact-check the Vice President’s claim.
Dr. Bawumia, while recently interacting with some Chiefs and people in the Upper West Region claimed a slew of things that his government has done for Upper West, including supposedly building the three-unit classroom block in Sangbaka for the people.
“…classroom block in Sangbaka and … so on; renovation of a boys dormitory in Hilla Liman SHS and so on,” Dr. Bawumia had claimed.
According to natives of the village, they were initially wondering if their village was where Bawumia had referenced in his speech, before realizing that there is only one Sangbaka in the whole of Ghana.
This is the umpteenth time Dr. Bawumia has been fact-checked as a significant number of the 17,000 projects he claims his government had undertaken in four years are either inexistent or were started by others.
