Suhuyini On Carpet Over Bawunia

Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako and Alhassan Suhuyini

The managing editor of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul-Malik
Kweku Baako last Saturday exposed Alhassan Suhuyini for lying against the Vice
President Mahamudu Bawumia on Newsfile. 

The Tamale North Member of Parliament, on the show, read a tweet
supposedly coming from the Twitter account of the then vice presidential
candidate of the NPP to the effect that the NPP, if given the mandate, would
never borrow for the country’s developmental agenda. 

Quoting from the said tweet, Suhuyini sought to discredit the
credibility of the Vice President in relation to the fact that the current
government is borrowing for its policies and projects. 

Speaking on the same programme, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako
emphasized that the then vice presidential candidate of the NPP never made
those comments. 

“Take it from me; I don’t think Dr. Bawumia ever made such
comments. This tweet could not have come from him because it is practically
impossible for any administration not to do a bit of borrowing. This tweet
Suhuyini is quoting from is of doubtful validity” Mr. Baako ended.

Trying to counter the doubt thrown on the source of his tweet,
Suhuyini insisted that the tweet indeed came from the Vice President. 

Evans Mensah, the host of the show, queried Suhuyini to adduce
credible evidence to back his claim of the tweet having emanated from the Vice
President’s Twitter account. Suhuyini found himself wanting as he could do
nothing in that department and pleaded with the Public and IT gurus to help him
get a video or audio of Dr. Bawumia saying that.

The opposition NDC has copiously referred to this tweet as
coming from the Vice President from one of his lectures when the NPP was in

Texters and Facebookers who followed the programme asked Why
the NDC hasn’t been able to bring the voice of the then vice presidential
candidate of the NPP to substantiate this claim as something that runs counter
to logical reasoning. 

It only stands to reason that this statement being attributed to
the Vice President is nothing but a pure invention of the NDC just to sully the
reputation of the Vice President.

Knowing the NDC, if they have any such evidence they would have
broadcast it widely on social media by now.
