Joe Ghartey consoles Bawumia over his mother’s death


Presidential Candidate Aspirant of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Joe Ghartey, has consoled Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, over the passing of his mother, Hajia Mariama Bawumia.

Dr. Bawumia’s mother passed away on Monday, September 13, 2021.

In a statement, Hon. Ghartey, the Member of Parliament for Essikado Ketan Constituency, said, “it is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Hajia Mariama Bawumia. On behalf of Efua and I, I send our deepest condolences to H.E Alhaji Dr Mahamadu Bawumia’s family at this difficult time.

“We mourn with you and celebrate the extraordinary life of this remarkable woman. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family”.

Hajia Mariama had been unwell and had been hospitalized over the past few weeks.

She was buried yesterday, Tuesday, September 14, 2021, in line with Islamic tradition.

Scores of dignitaries trooped in to the family house of Dr. Bawumia at Kperiga, Walewale to pay their last respects to the late mother.

Government officials, political parties and traditional leaders among others were also gathered at the family house.

For women of the municipality, Hajia Mariama’s demise is a big blow.

“We grew up together, though she was a bit older than us. When she gave birth to her children, we assisted her whenever she was busy,” said Hajia Hawa Issah, the late Hajia Mariama’s friend.

She said her death will create a big vacuum in the lives of the women in the area.

Hajia Mariama is seen as a mother for all at Kperiga.

“As a princess who got married to a royal family, she stood for the interest of women in her community,” Haruna Asana, another woman in the town, told Citi News.

Madam Asana is a member of Bela Nobra women’s group in Walewale.

“She used to advise us on our investment and will do everything possible to settle quarrels among women in the town. She was a great woman with vast experience in life, and we will truly miss her,” Madam Asana added.
