- A leading member of the NPP, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe, has called for the resignation of the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia
- According to him, Dr. Bawumia gave numerous assurances during the campaign season, but the government is yet to translate them into reality
A popular member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe, has called on the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, to resign.
According to him, Ghana’s economy is a bad state, and for that reason, Dr. Bawumia need not remain in office.
He explained that Dr. Bawumia has failed to deliver on the numerous promises and assurances he gave Ghanaians when the NPP was in opposition.
“If you look at the data, you will realize that whilst the National Democratic Congress (NDC) were borrowing, the debt to GDP ratio was increasing, jumping and ballooning.
But while we are borrowing, the debt to GDP is declining. So they should take a closer look at the data and come back again,” he said.
He went on to say that according to Standard and Poor, a global rating agency, Ghana’s sovereign credit ratings have been upgraded from B minus to B with a stable outlook. And, this is the first upgrade that Ghana has received in 10 years.
This follows the fact that “after 8 years of the NDC’s economic management, our ratings went from B plus to B minus.
his is after 8 years! After only 20 months of new NPP government under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, we have been upgraded from B minus to B,” he noted at the national policy summit in Tamale," he added.
In Dr. Tamakloe’s opinion, the vice president should however resign because “he made us believe that the money was there and things were going to change when we take over.
I had a lot of hope in him but now I’m totally disappointed in him. Unless things turn around by the end of the year, then I can believe him again.”
The government has come under intense public backlash over the performance of the Cedi against the dollar and the rising cost of petroleum products.
President Akufo-Addo recently that conceded things are difficult in Ghana.
But the vice president insists Ghanaians are better off under the NPP government because things would have been worse under an NDC government.
