Well, freelance journalist and former worker of Multimedia Group Limited, Manasseh Azure has revealed a history of political rivalry on his Facebook page.
The rivalry of the fathers of both Veep Dr. Bawumia and former Prez John Dramani Mahama has been unravelled.
Manasseh Azure revealed this to his followers. Check it out.
“John Mahama’s father, E.A. Mahama, and Dr. Bawumia’s father, Mumuni Bawumia, were the first generation of politicians from Northern Ghana. When John Mahama’s father, the first minister of the Northern Region, was removed from office, he was replaced with Dr. Bawumia’s father. He had travelled, and Mumuni Bawumia was asked to act, but he never returned to his position. The reason for John Mahama’s father removal, according to sources, was because Dr. Bawumia’s father had reported him to Nkrumah. The subject of the complaint was the allegation that Mr. E.A. Mahama had installed a generator meant for Tamale in his home town of Bole. This, according to sources, created a friction between the two.
“Dr. Bawumia, however, says their fathers were friends. “We knew the Mahamas. Our fathers were friends and we grew up together in Tamale, a suburb called Agric,” he said. Those were the days their fathers had left politics and become prosperous farmers in Tamale….”

This means the Mahamas and the Bawumias have always been at each other’s throat from Day 1.
