Samuel Kwasi Ankamah has laid credence to the fact that current Vice President Dr.
Mahamudu Bawumia was indeed a member of the Boys Brigade of the Methodist Church.He described Dr.
Bawumia as a unifier who does not discriminate on religious lines, explaining that it was a lifestyle he grew up with wondering why many are trying to make a mockery of his disclosure that he was once a member of the association in the church.Dr.
As a young boy at Sakasaka primary school in Tamale, I was born to a Methodist mother (then Susana Mariama) and a Muslim father.“Growing up I was an active member of the Methodist Boys’ Brigade until my mum changed to Islam.
I suspect I am the only Muslim member of the Boys’ Brigade,” he recounted.His comments appeared to have been given a slant by some propagandists who tried making political capital of them but his senior has mounted a spirited defense.According to Mr.
Bawumia the current Vice President was indeed a Brigade member.
When we were children, he joined us at the Methodist Church in Tamale.
