Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North Constituency, Alhaji Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini was on Saturday June 15, 2019 badly exposed by the Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku-Baako on live television for trying to use a fake tweet in advancing a point.
On Joy Fm’s news analysis programme, Newsfile, the lawmaker read a tweet supposedly coming from the
Twitter account of the then vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party
(NPP) to the effect that the NPP, if given the mandate would never borrow for
the country’s developmental agenda
Quoting from the said tweet, Suhuyini sought to discredit
the credibility of the Vice President in relation to the fact that the current
government is borrowing for its policies and projects.
But his co-panelist, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako emphasized that
the then vice presidential candidate of the NPP never made those comments as
claimed by Suhuyini and other leading members of the opposition National
“Take it from me, I don’t think Dr. Bawumia ever made
such comments. This tweet could not have come from him because it is
practically impossible for any administration not to do a bit of borrowing.
This tweet Suhuyini is quoting from is of doubtful validity” Mr. Baako
Trying to counter the doubt thrown on the source of his
tweet, Suhuyini insisted that the tweet indeed came from the Vice President.
Evans Mensah, the host of the show, queried Suhuyini to
adduce credible evidence to back his claim of the tweet having emanated from
the Vice President’s Twitter account.
Suhuyini found himself wanting as he could do nothing in that department and pleaded with the Public and IT gurus to help him get a video or audio of Dr. Bawumia saying that.
The opposition NDC has copiously referred to this tweet as
coming from the Vice President from one of his lectures when the NPP was in
