Dr Bawumia said he was now refusing the temptation to say when government projects will be completed due to failure of contractors to finish on time.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia disclosed to a section of people in a meeting at Tamale that he is looking to no longer commit to giving timelines on government projects. This was because, according to a report we sighted, his wife has advised him not.
According to Mynewsgh.com which claims to have an audio recording of the meeting, the Vice President was on a tour of the northern regions of the country to push across government's agenda.
At the 2018 Quran Festival in Tamale where Dr Bawumia was present, he took the time to explain what the government intended to do and already doing. He however refused to say when he thought some of the projects may be completed
The Veep then reportedly said: “My wife says I should stop giving timelines”.
Dr. Bawumia seems to have adhered to his wife's advice due to the inability of several contractors to complete programmes and projects that the government had extensively publicised.
He was however willing to make a commitment to contractors, warning them that: "If, by March of next year, you haven’t constructed the dams, that contract will be taking away from you, and given to someone who can do it.
We should try and make sure by March those dams are completed. If any of the contractors are unable to complete it, we will re-award those contracts."

It is not clear what level of seriousness the Dr Bawumia attaches to his wife's advice. Ghanaians are however certain to react to this with mixed feelings.
