NPP running-mate, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia

Any true Muslim would nor support the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Mr. Eric Opoku has stated.

According to Mr Opoku, Sura 105 verse 1-5 stipulates that Muslims should stay away from elephants and that any Muslim who has something to do with an elepahant is not a real Muslim and therefore meant that no real Muslim should support the NPP which has an elephant as its emblem.

Mr Opoku, also the Member of Parliament for Asunafo South, who was  addressing Chiefs, Imams and party executives in a meeting at Acherensua on Tuesday questioned why running-mate to the NPP flagbearer, Alhaji Dr Mahamadu Bawumia who is a true Muslim who should know better and ask Muslims to leave the party is instead calling on them to vote for the elephant party, adomonline reported.
