    Your handbag costs more than Bawumia's donation to Akosombo victims – Ken’s team jab Samira

    A member of the legal counsel for New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful Kennedy Agyapong, has chided the wife of Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for her ‘luxurious’ lifestyle, which comes at an exorbitant cost.

    Ralph Agyapong noted that Mrs Samira Bawumia could have invested the sums of money spent on accessories such as handbags to help alleviate the current condition of Ghanaians who are facing economic challenges.

    He noted that the Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong, whom she allegedly described as “bitter, angry, and satisfied candidate” has played a vital role in the upgrade of lives in the Ashanti Region.

    Mrs Bawumia is reported to have entreated NPP delegates to ignore Mr Agyapong since he didn’t mind landing the party into opposition.

    In response, Mr Ralph Agyapong said: “This is the Second Lady who is in the Ashanti region and telling the polling station executives and coordinators about someone she claims to be bitter, angry, and satisfied.

    “When God blessed him, he didn’t spend the money; rather, he is using it to build a Cardio Centre for 37 Military Hospital for the military.

    “Go to the Okomfo Anokye Cancer Centre; he has donated money to them. When he had money, he didn’t use it to buy expensive bags to go and stand in front of polling station executives.”

    He compared the amount of money spent on bags by Mrs Bawumia to the Vice President’s recent donation to the victims of the dam spillages in the country.

    “The money she used to buy the said bag is more expensive than her husband’s donation to the flood victims. If you approach people with this kind of luxurious lifestyle and tell them this, what is more insulting than this? So, what the woman said, I believe it just came at the spot, that is how I see it,” he said.

    Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has donated GH₵160,000 of his personal funds to victims of the Akosombo Dam spillage.

    Kennedy Agyapong will be vying for the flagbearer position, facing three other competitors, namely Dr. Bawumia, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and Francis Addai-Nimoh.

    The NPP has scheduled November 4, 2023, as the date for selecting the next leader of the party, who will succeed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
