National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag bearer, John Dramani Mahama has intimated that the practicality in running an economy is different from text book knowledge.
The former president in a Facebook live section on his page noted that he has been vindicated.
According Mr. Mahama, he was right when he suggested that President Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia did not have the requisite competence to run Ghana’s economy.

“You don’t run an economy from textbooks; you don’t run an economy with economic lectures,” Mahama said Thursday, January 30 in a live social media interaction.
John Mahama further questioned the management of the Ghana economy in the last three years under the stewardship of President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia.
“Running an economy takes practical work, determination and prioritization,” he reiterated.
In the build up to the 2016 presidential elections, the NPP under the leadership of Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia called then president Mahama all sorts of names, saying he had failed in managing the economy.
But three years down the lane after the NPP won the 2016 elections, the NDC is questioning why Dr. Bawumia especially haven’t been able to apply and implement all the lectures and text book knowledge I transforming Ghana’s economy.
John Mahama teased Bawumia over his inability to practice what he preached while in opposition.
