Ghana’s VP reacts to Bawumia’s lecture describing all his assertions as lies told with the aim of rubbishing the records of the incumbent of government.
Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has lashed New Patriotic Party (NPP) running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, regarding his recent lecture on the current state of Ghana’s economy. Dr. Bawumia in a public lecture last Thursday, argued that President Mahama’s administration has mismanaged the economy by borrowing excessively, saying the Mills government did far better than Mahama’s.
In one of the attacks, he said that government has been spending a while lot on high interest payments on loans, leading to its inability to invest in capital expenditure. But Amissah Arthur argued that this claim is incorrect because the interest payments on loans are used for the same capital expenditures Bawumia wants to see government make.
Speaking to National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters at Ashaiman on Sunday, the VP reacts to Bawumia’s lecture describing all his assertions against the incumbent government as lies, and promising to respond in full measure to all them.
Furthermore, grand policy think tank IMANI, has also punched holes into the assertions, made by Bawumia regarding the current state of the country’s economy. According to the body’s reaction to the lecture, even though the NPP Veep hopeful got most of his figures right, he manipulated some of them for political gains.
The Vice President for this reason, has said that the party will respond to his claims in due time. According to him, he will expose Bawumia for his lies in due time, and teach him the things that he doesn’t know which he thinks he knows.
Ghanaians are waiting for Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur to present a valid argument, to counter the points made by Dr. Bawumia against the Mahama-led administration.
