The cartoon faced criticism for promoting religious bigotry and intolerance. Media General, however, faced public backlash for unprofessional conduct and concerns about religious tension. In response, the media company removed the cartoon from social media and issued an apology to Dr. Bawumia's Communications Head, Nana Akomea on November 15, 2023. The NPP plans to file a complaint with the National Media Commission, accusing Media General of consistently promoting hate against them without valid reasons. As the controversy unfolds, it remains to be seen how Media General addresses concerns and whether this incident sparks a broader discussion on religious tolerance and media ethics in Ghana.
