Blaming Bawumia For Ghana’s Economic Woes Is Cruel – Atta Akyea

Member of Parliament for Akyem Abuakwa Constituency in the Eastern Region, Samuel Atta Akyea says, blaming the vice President for Ghana’s economic downturn is cruel.

According to the lawmaker, it is a vile propaganda for anyone to think Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is responsible for the state of Ghana’s economy.

Atta Akyea said during an interview on Face to Face, on Citi TV say, Dr. Bawumia would be a fine president and Ghana would benefit from his since it is going to be the first time Ghana is going to have an economist as a president.

“This is the first time Ghana is going to have a president who is an economist, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. If the problem of Ghana now and people are talking about its seriousness, I agree to a reasonable extent that the economy is not in its best form. When you have a toothache, do you give it to a carpenter or a dentist? Ghana will be in a safer pair of hands when we bring Dr. Bawumia.”

He added that, Bawumia would be the best man to be trusted to solve the economic challenges and it would be unkind to judge him with the current economic woes.

“Ghana is going to get a man with shock absorbers, the finest gentleman, to help us solve a major problem facing us, the economy. He was in a very serious adversary role, which is what people don’t want to see. It’s cruel and vile propaganda for everybody to say that let’s place all the economic woes of Akufo-Addo on Dr. Bawumia. It’s unkind,”

The former Minister for Works and Housing believes the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot manage the government’s flagship educational policy, free Senior High Schools (SHS), if they win power, since they didn’t start.

“Some people believe that you [NDC] didn’t start free SHS; you might not even know how to continue. And the nation will suffer for it,” he stated.

Ghana goes to the polls in December to elect a new president. The key contenders for the election are the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and former President John Dramani Mahama.
