The Vice-President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has described the decision of former President John Dramani Mahama to contest the flag bearer slot of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to enable him to become president of Ghana again, as part of Mr Mahama’s move to do more damage to Ghana.
Dr Bawumia, who was speaking at a meeting with Metropolitan and Municipal District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in Accra on Monday, 8 October, said: “I hear the incompetent one says he wants to come back, he wants to come and do more damage, as if he didn’t do enough damage; well we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, oh my God”.
Dr Bawumia stated that twenty months into the Akufo-Addo administration, the difference is clear.
He continued: “But you have to remember what happened at the time we came into office after many years of incompetent economic management; you cannot describe it any other than incompetent economic management. After many years of such economic management, the people of Ghana gave us the privilege to change course but after just twenty months in office, the difference is clear.
Mr Mahama, who is on a campaign tour of the country to reclaim the NDC ticket for the 2020 election, has accused the NPP of lying its way into power and failing to deliver on its promises.
He has, on some occasions, described the Akufo-Addo government as “super incompetent”.
