Unimpeachable Sources closer to the seat of government have described as “unfortunate” the “neglectful” manner at which Vice President, Alhaji Dr Mahamadu Bawumia is being inflicted with “mistreatment and unfair disregard” by very close blood relatives and confidants of His Excellency the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Ghanaian Observer has learnt.
Narrating vividly one of the tasteless incidents the unassuming Vice President Bawumia has been saddled with, one source who pleaded to remain anonymous for now, posited “on the week before the State of the Nation’s address by His Excellency the President, Vice President Dr Bawumia sent for Executive Secretary of the President, Lawyer Nana Asante Bediatuo through one Presidential staffer of his ( name withheld). Lawyer Bediatuo upon receiving the message retorted to the Presidential staffer to inform Vice President Dr Bawumia that “Tell Dr Bawumia that, I am the Executive Secretary to the President and not to him… I remain answerable to the President and nobody else. If Bawumia needs me, let him come to me,” the source recollected.
Even though the Akufo-Addo administration is at its infant stage, however, very unpopular attitudinal acts of condescending, uniquely identified with the Akufo-Addo family against persons they may not like seems to have been transmogrified into this new government, and no less a person than the Vice President Dr Bawumia has dominated on the lips of known party workers at the Presidency, as the unfortunate sufferer of this unpleasant torture.
More to come soon…
