Samira blasts Mahama over his squandering of the nation’s income on giant billboards when the country is in serious economic meltdown
Samira Bawumia, wife of the vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has accused President John Mahama of being so extravagant amid untold hardship in the three northern regions. Bawumia’s wife made these accusations referring to the giant billboards sponsored by the President for his campaigns in the region.
Addressing thousands of party supporters at the Trade Fair Centre on Sunday during the launch of the party’s manifesto, Samira blasts Mahama over the giant billboards. She wondered why a leader would invest lavishly in the erection of billboards and abandon the needs of citizens who voted for him.
Mrs Bawumia lamented on the present economic situation which has been neglected by the President and his administration as they have not hesitated to spend the nation’s money on frivolous things. Speaking about women, Samira Bawumia said that the Mahama-led administration has not implemented a single policy to boost the lives of women since its tenure. She therefore urged the women to turn their votes to the NPP in the coming elections.
Samira stressed during the manifesto launch that, another four-year term for Mahama would worsen the plight of women in the country. She also urged women to join in the campaign for the NPP flagbearer ahead of the elections.
The NPP’s manifesto launch which took place at the Trade Fair Centre on Sunday was a big hit, as the event saw thousands of party supporters in attendance. NPP’s manifesto, a 68-page document, highlighted the party’s plan for all sectors of the economy. NPP loyalists hailed party big wigs as they took turns to make explicit, the plans of the party for the people.
NPP’s remarkable manifesto launch solidified the loyalty of its supporters, as many of them pledged to intensify their campaign for the Flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo.
