Dr Bawumia's Lecture

The NPP Veep hopeful, has always argued that the key sectors of the economy are contracting and stagnating, which explains why the economy is not growing.

It can be recalled that in 2012, Bawumia gave a lecture on the state of the country’s economy then, predicting a huge wreck should there be no game-changing strategies applied in the system.

Bawumia has also made another prediction which came to pass; that of the fall of the cedi and a huge debt burden.

Dr. Bawumia has argued several times that the economy is in shambles, as a result of the mismanagement and incompetence of the NDC.

The outspoken running mate of NPP’s flagbearer Nana Addo; said this with reference to the sky-rocketed tariff rates, poverty and joblessness, as well as the depreciating currency which has also led to the shut down of many businesses, in the country.

He has promised Ghanaians that his party will indeed bring change into the system which will be reflected in the country’s economy.

The lecture will start at 4.00 pm on the scheduled date, September 8. All have been invited to the lecture to listen, as Bawumia speaks once again on what will be done to change Ghana’s economy.
