Bawumia’s lecture will now hold at the National Theatre, and all are invited
The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) running mate, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, will today [Thursday], deliver a lecture on the state of Ghana’s economy. The lecture which will hold at the National theatre, centres on the topic; The State of the Ghanaian Economy: A Foundation of Concrete or Straw.
The lecture will be chaired by former President John AGyekum Kufuor. Bawumia is expected to speak on what measures that can be put in place to bring about a positive change in Ghana’s economy.
Dr. Bawumia and his team remain resilient despite the hitch experienced in the course of planning the big event. The NPP had experienced some challenges moments away form the big day. The party was compelled to change the venue for the event, after the Accra International Conference Centre reportedly denied them access to the facility. This was 24-hours to the public lecture.
The opposition party also pointed out in a statement that, the Conference Centre denied them access despite earlier assurances, and two days of technical meetings and arrangements between the organizers. It was indeed an unexpected development for the party seeing as they had concluded technical set-up for the event with and technical men at the Centre, as well as other arrangements.
Dr. Bawumia has been known for his series of lectures, which constantly centre on pertinent issues regarding the country’s economy. The veep hopeful has always raised arguments pointing out that, key sectors of the economy are contracting and stagnating, which is why the economy is not growing. Bawumia has also made some predictions regarding the economy, which eventually came to pass; this includes that of the fall of the cedi, and a huge debt burden.
Arguing that the economy is in shambles, the veep hopeful has promised Ghanaians that the NPP government will bring change into the system, which will be reflected in the country’s economy.
Bawumia’s lecture will hold at the National Theatre, and all are invited.
