Vice President Dr. Mamahudu Bawumia has been under heavy criticism from Ningo Prapram Member of Parliament Sam Nartey George over his candidacy for president.
Since Ghanaians are unable to determine if the vice president is a true Christian or Muslim, he is seen by them as a religious prostitute, and such a person cannot be the president of Ghana.
Sam George said during an interview on Metro TV, which 1Family Radio monitored, that Bawumia is a religious prostitute because he concurrently professes both the Muslim and Christian faiths.
“The best description you can give him is that he is a Muslim by day and a Christian by night; a religious prostitute cannot be our president,’’ he noted.
The politician went on to provide more clarification, citing times when Dr. Bawumia said nothing about matters that mattered most to Muslims, such as the Hijab scandal and the assassinations of Muslim youth in Kumasi.
He asserts that a devout Muslim will never bow down before men of God for prayer or openly acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior. Sam George said that these actions do not characterize the kind of sincere Muslim that Dr. Bawumia claims to be.
“We will take our time and scrutinize Bawumia for who he is. I will take him on his so-called digitization drive. We are talking about a man who you cannot vouch for. Do you know whether he is a Muslim or not?’’ he asked.
“When issues of hijabs came up in this country for Muslim girls, did you ever hear Dr. Bawumia speak? When the issue of fasting for girls came up during Ramadan, he was silent. When the Muslim Zongo youth were killed in cold blood in Kumasi, Dr. Bawumia was silent.’’
“No true Muslim anywhere in the world believes that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. No true Muslim kneels before a Catholic priest or a pastor to lay hands on them—only Bawumia.’’
“If you like, you can take the Suraj Mariama, which talks about who Jesus is. They do not see Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal savior, as we do. Bawumia goes to church, claiming that Jesus Christ is our Lord and personal savior. He is not a proper Muslim,’’ he asserted.
