Ignore claims that Bawumia was blocked on Kumasi highway, says Gideon Boako

A spokesperson for the Vice President and presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Gideon Boako, has dismissed claims on social media that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia was blocked by some irate youths from crossing a section of the Nkawkaw-Kumasi highway. to ride.

A 47-second video clip that has gone viral on social media shows two police drivers and several other vehicles waiting behind a blockade set up by some youths across the highway. Speculation was rife on social media that the cars seen in the video clip were part of the vice president’s convoy.

In a post on his Facebook wall, Dr. Boako, however; “I have seen a video circulating with the story that some angry youths blocked the Vice President’s convoy on the Nkawkaw-Kumasi highway on Saturday, May 4, 2024. This story is a blatant lie.

“The vice president hasn’t even used that road all week. The Vice President was in the West region on May 1 and 2 (Wednesday and Thursday). He moved to the West North region on Thursday, May 3, arriving in Kumasi at around 10pm the same day. He left Kumasi on the morning of Saturday, May 4, by plane for Accra. At no time did the Vice President drive from Kumasi to Accra and use the Nkawkaw-Kumasi road,” said the message from Dr. Gideon Boako.

“My understanding of the blockage is that there was an accident involving a loaded fuel tanker falling onto the main road. In an effort to avoid major casualties in the unfortunate event of an explosion, the youths blocked the road until the fire brigade and other security agencies allowed commuters to use the road,” said Dr. Gideon Boako’s Facebook post.

The NPP presidential candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, embarked on a nationwide campaign tour on Monday, April 29, 2024. So far, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has visited the Eastern Region, Dome Kwabenya in the Greater Accra Region, the Western Region and the Western Northern Region. .
