Bawumia descends on NDC government over mismanagement of Ghana’s economy



The vice presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has criticised the ruling NDC government for collapsing all the social interventions the past NPP regime initiated to alleviate the sufferings of Ghanaians.

Dr Bawumia, in justifying his description of the President John Mahama led administration as incompetent during the campaign launch of NPP parliamentary candidates, said the NDC’s development record best fit his description.

He told a large crowd of party supporters at Savelugu that, the NPP met 20 billion Ghana cedis and was able to use it to establish the NHIS, the capitalization grant, youth employment, and the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty ( LEAP) programme, amongst others, under former President John Agyekum Kufuor.

According to Dr Bawumia, the NDC met two hundred and forty-eight billion Ghana cedis, and promised a better Ghana but collapsed the NPP’s interventions meant to lessen the economic difficulties of Ghanaians.

Dr Bawumia also took a swipe at the President Mahama led administration for the mismanagement of 200 million Ghana cedis meant for the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) and urged the electorate in the Savelugu constituency to vote for Mohammed Abdul Somed Gunu and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.

The NPP running mate, who spoke in Dagbani, charged the electorate to change their voting pattern, come the December 7 elections. According to Dr Bawumia, farmers and parents can no longer afford to buy fertilizer and pay their children’s school fees and the worse of it all was the cancellation of nurses and teacher trainee allowances by the NDC government.

Dr Bawumia repeated his attack on the President saying, “the president has been preparing food for eight years now but the soup is fermented”. “I will change a different type of soup according to your wish, once Nana Addo becomes president”, Dr Bawumia assured.

The NPP running mate claimed that, monies meant for basic social amenities cannot be felt in the various communities and that the NPP is committed to implementing its One million dollars for each constituency in Ghana to help address problems confronting the people.
