A campaign team member for New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer candidate Kennedy Agyapong, Mr. Samuel Duah, has slammed Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, for his alleged failure in handling the country’s economy, describing the ruling NPP as “bad managers of the economy.”
According to him, Dr. Bawumia, who was regarded as the NPP’s economic Messiah prior to the 2012-2016 electioneering year, has now stopped giving lectures on Ghana’s economy after contributing to the country’s economic hardship.
In an interview on the TV XYZ morning show “Dwaboase”, Mr. Duah said that because there was absolutely nothing positive about the sinking economy of the country, Dr. Bawumia has shifted his attention to pursuing digitization rather than sticking to his area of expertise in economics.
Ghana’s economy is in total shambles under the watch of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia,” he added.
He stressed that, from what has been witnessed so far by the much-tuated economic wizkid, there is no denial of the fact that Dr. Bawumia has mismanaged Ghana’s economy.
Mr. Duah placed Ghana’s present economic crisis, epitomized by the extreme untold hardship facing Ghanaians, right at the doorstep of the NPP under the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia-led administration.
He stated that in the midst of plenty of economic lectures, Dr. Bawumia is still not doing anything practical to deliver the citizenry from the economic hardship currently experienced by Ghanaians.
He said that since the NPP came into power for the past 7 years, they have mismanaged the affairs of the state and further deepened the economic woes of the ordinary Ghanaian.
Mr. Duah was of the strong conviction that the NPP ought to opt for a determined presidential candidate like Kennedy Agyapong to lead the party, rescue the country from its misery, and place Ghana on the path of prosperity.
Mr. Dual, therefore, charged the teeming supporters of the NPP throughout the country and urged delegates to vote for Kennedy Agyapong on November 4 for the National Delegates Conference to lead the NPP so as to secure political victory for the party in the 2024 general elections.
