Dr Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party running mate, has on multiple campaign platforms accused officials of the governing NDC of thievery.
But in an angry response, Mr Jacob blasted him, saying he is a product of thievery since his father, Mumuni Bawumia, once served as the chairman of the council of state under the NDC during Rawlings' administration.
"His father is Mumuni Bawumia and he was the first Chairman of the Council of State under the 1992 constitution. His father is a leading member of our party and he had a post as the chairman but today he describes members of the NDC as thieves," he said the campaign launch of the party's Cape Coast North parliamentary candidate ,Kwabena Owusu Acheampong (Kobby Acheapong ).
He added: "If he describes us as thieves, then his father stole NDC funds, Ghana money to take care of him for him to reach his current status as a doctor. In fact, Bawumia is a product of thievery. It means it was money from theft which was used to take care of him."
"He is ungrateful. The good things we did for his father for him to be able to take care of him, he doesn't appreciate it. Rather he is desecrating us."
