A Deputy Communications Director of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Anthony Abayifa Karbo, has stated that the Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur can freely compare himself with other economists in NPP but not Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

He said the Vice president could be at par with the likes of Dr. Anthony Osei Akoto former Deputy Finance Minister, Kwaku Kwarteng former Communications Director of NPP, saying Dr. Bawumia’s IQ is way above that of the Vice president.

Mr. Karbo took a swipe at the Vice president for stating that he will teach Dr. Bawumia economic lessons after the latter’s public lecture last week.

But speaking with Kasapa News’ Akwasi Nsiah, he said the running mate of NPP will floor the Vice president if the two mount an intellectual discourse platform.

He said the Vice president and members of ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) are only tickling themselves by challenging to teach Dr. Bawumia economic lessons.

‘What Dr. Bawumia and NPP said during the public lecture is the truth, we are not throwing dust in the eyes of the public, and we didn’t peddle any falsehood. If Amissah-Arthur has something to say, he should come out with it, the NDC should desist from comparing Amissah Arthur with Dr. Bawumia.

There is no way we can compare these two, there is no way kraa, because Amissah-Arthur is not close to Dr. Bawumia, Amissah Arthur could be at par with Kwaku Kwarteng, Dr. Akoto Osei and the rest, but Dr. Bawumia is out,’ he said.
