“Back in my teens at Tamale, I was the only Muslim member of the Boys Brigade. My mother is a product of Wesley Girls Senior High School (a Methodist school), and likewise my wife, Samira Bawumia, a product of Mfantsiman School (also a Methodist school)”, he revealed.
Bawumia and politics
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.
