Vice President Bawumia on February 11, 2020, addressed a maiden Townhall meeting in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region which focused on government’s achievements and promises fulfilled so far.
Dr Bawumia used a combination of graphs, tables and text, to support his claim that the Akufo-Addo administration had largely delivered on its manifesto promises, especially on the economy.
“The data shows that Ghana’s macroeconomic fundamentals are strong. Indeed, the strength of Ghana’s fundamentals was confirmed recently by Moody’s Ratings which changed Ghana’s sovereign ratings from B3 with a stable outlook to B3 with a positive outlook. This is unprecedented for an election year,” Vice President Bawumia pointed out.
However, commenting on the issue on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo‘ Tetteh-Chai described most comments made by the Vice President as deceitful.
According to him, Ghanaians no longer trust the Vice President because of the crediblity problem he has.
“The same person as at March 2016 during a press conference said Mahama deserves no credit for fixing dumsor . . . and then today you go to the Ashanti Region to tell Ghanaians you are the one who fixed dumsor. Do you think we have memory loss?” he argued.
