On Bawumia’s economic views, ‘I can’t think madness’ – Mahama
President John Mahama has said he cannot comprehend what informs Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s analysis on the economy.
According to him, it is difficult to appreciate why the NPP running mate continues to talk down the Ghanaian economy in spite of the ample evidence that the economy is on track.
“..Despite all the scientific basis even from outside…If somebody says the economy is going back, then I can’t understand, ‘I can’t think far, I can’t think madness’ but I know that it is propaganda because I have been a student of history, I have been a student of social psychology, a student of politics and others, so I know that when you want to win power you create a feeling of crisis; like the country is collapsing, and that is what they are doing here like it was done during the Brexit vote.
“ I can tell you on authority as President of the Republic and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces that this country is not in crisis and this country is not going backwards. She is going forward,” the president told students of the University of Ghana as part of his campaign in the Greater Accra region.
Mahama is clueless in economic management – Bawumia
The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s running mate, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia claims President John Dramani Mahama is clueless in economic management for which reason he doesn’t deserve a second term.
“The Mahama-led NDC administration has mortgaged Ghana’s economy and so another four years for Mahama will collapse the nation,” he opined.
He thus challenged President Mahama to focus on fixing the economy and stop using the NPP’s manifesto as a diversionary tactic to cover up his incompetence.
Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia as part of his two weeks campaign tour of the Northern Region was addressing the University for Development Studies (UDS) Nyankpala campus chapter of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP.
He assured Ghanaians that the NPP under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s competent leadership has a comprehensive economic plan for the nation.
According to him, the nation’s banking system is under threat because debtors are not credit worthy due to the local credit crunch masterminded by the NDC administration.
He further asserted that government’s reckless expenditure has contributed to the overwhelming banking interest rates.
