- Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said the government will not be forced to take decisions that is counter the interest of the people
- The Vice-President believes the opposition NDC are scoring cheap political points from on-going issues in the country
The Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has cautioned that the government will not be pushed into taking economic decisions that are not in the interest of Ghanaians. He was speaking at this year's National Policy Summit in Tamale.
According to Graphic.com.gh, the Vice-President said the economic decisions and policies taken so far by the Akufo-Addo adminstration were geared towards improving the well-being of Ghanaians.
He criticised what he believes was the attempt to score cheap political points from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The Akufo-Addo government, he said, would continue to come up with social intervention policies that would make the ordinary Ghanaian feel the impact of the economic gains made so far in their lives.
The criticisms about the economy have not only come from the NDC. NPP lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong reacted to a statement by Dr Gideon Boako, the spokesperson for the Vice President, on the assessment of the depreciating cedi.
Agyapong was not enthused with the explanation from government and did not hide what he thought was a failure of the administration.
