Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been lashing out at President John Mahama, arguing he has only transformed his pocket and that of his associates in the ruling National Democratic Congress.
According to the New Patriotic Party vice-presidential candidate, there is no way Mahama and the NDC can transform Ghana, judging from the fact that “Ghanaians are going through unprecedented hardships.”
Dr. Bawumia stated that it is clear the government cannot respond to the 170 and more statements of fact he made during his last lecture and noted that after 8 years in office, the only record to set straight is the incompetence and corruption of the John Mahama/ NDC government.
Speaking to party supporters at Assin Fosu, Dr. Bawumia was amazed that after “sinking the country’s economy into a ditch and after supervising an era of unprecedented hardships”, the NDC still had the courage to claim that they had transformed Ghana and changed lives.
After outlining some of the key policies the Nana Akufo-Addo government will introduce to kick-start the economy, Dr. Bawumia said, “so we are really set for a major transformation of this economy; it will not be the type of propaganda transformation John Mahama is talking about when he says he’s Transforming lives and changing Ghana, where is the transformation?
“When the NPP had only 20billion Ghana cedis, you saw transformation. You saw the National Health Insurance Scheme, the School Feeding Programme, the National Youth Employment Programme, the free Maternal Care Programme, Metro Mass, Mass Cocoa Spraying exercise etc.; all these interventions were done with only 20 billion but with 248 billion that has come to the NDC, they have collapsed all these programmes and yet they have the audacity to say that they have transformed Ghana, they have only transformed their pockets.”
