Speaking to Miimann Ghana, Alhaji Sinare said “it’s not a secret that deep inside Bawumia I know is NDC, Bawumia was forced to accept that position against his will. His family members who we all know including his late father whom we all cherished is a very strong NDC man who worked so hard for this nation of ours and all of them are NDC members”.
