The 2016 running mate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia was yesterday denied access to the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) at Tarkwa in the Western region.  

Bawumia was publicized to address students of the university but he and his entourage were stopped by the university’s security post.

According to the Daily Guide newspaper, sources from the School’s Students’ Representative Council (SRC) indicated that he had been given the green light to be at the event and had earlier held a series of meetings with the university authorities.

Bawumia was last month prevented by authorities of St. Francis College of Education in the Volta region from addressing the school, citing orders from above.

Bawumia has been touring pre-tertiary schools to sell the NPP’s message of ‘arise for change’ to first time voters.

Pre-tertiary schools have become a target for the party because most of the pupils will turn 18 before the November polls.

The party has accused the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) of being behind the two incidents.

But the NDC has denied it, accusing the NPP of campaigning in pre-tertiary schools which the party says is against Ghana Education Service rules.
