The Spokesperson for the Vice President, Dr Gideon Boako, has described false claims that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia holds British citizenship while in office serving as Vice President of Ghana.
Social media was awash with several stories that the second gentleman of the land was a British citizen.
But in a response, the spokesperson stated emphatically that Dr. Bawumia has never held British citizenship, or any other citizenship in his life.
Dr Boako wrote: “The attention of the Office of the Vice President has been drawn to a malicious social media allegation that the Vice President holds a British citizenship while holding the office of Vice President, contrary to the laws of Ghana.”
“We wish to state in clear terms that Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia does not hold British citizenship and has never held British or any other citizenship other than being a Ghanaian. The allegation should be treated with the contempt it deserves. Thank you.”
