Bawumia causes stir on social media over NHIS debt statement

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has caused a stir on social media for saying his administration has paid off the GHC 1.25b NHIS debt they inherited from the NDC.

Bawumia made this known when speaking at the 60th annual general conference of the Ghana Medical Association.

According to him, the scheme has suffered great neglect and mismanagement, adding that Ghanaians will now start seeing improvement in the scheme after the debt was cleared.

However, social media users have reacted to Bawumia’s comment, with some hailing his administration while others criticised him.
