Flag bearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has rubbished the 24-hour economy promised by former president John Dramani Mahama.
Wading into discussions on the 24-hour economy promise by the NDC flag bearer, Dr Bawumia described the former president as a man who lacks ideas.
“Today John Mahama says he is bringing a 24-hour economy. He doesn’t even understand that policy because our hospitals are already working 24 hours, our electricity Company, water company, fuel companies work 24 hours.
“He is trying to come back, so he is doing everything possible to convince Ghanaians but before he told us he was a dead goat. The dead goat cannot be revived,” he said to a cheering crowd.
The Vice President continued that, “John Mahama is going round the whole country and promising everything to everybody. It is as if he has never been president of this country before. It is as if he has just landed from Mars.”
“When he was president, did he create jobs, did he tackle corruption, did he issue the Ghana card, did he bring mobile money interoperability, did he bring the Ghana property address system, did he bring the Zongo Development Fund, did he bring the teacher trainee allowance, did he bring free WiFi to schools, did he bring paperless ports, did he bring gold for oil, did he bring free SHS? All of these problems he couldn’t solve. It was the NPP government under Nana Akufo-Addo who solved all those problems,” he listed.
According to Dr Bawumia, he has brought great ideas as a Vice President than what former president Mahama did in his tenure as president.
“Even me as Vice President, I have solved many problems. What idea did Mahama bring as a Cice President? Dr. Bawumia has brought idea, after idea, after idea,” he announced.
Dr. Bawumia was addressing an electrified crowd in Nalerigu as part of his ‘Thank You’ tour since elected flagbearer of the NPP on November 4, 2023.
He is expected to visit Yendi, Saboba and Bimbilla on November 21 to continue his ‘Thank You’ tour.
