The 2020 Campaign team of former President John Mahama has urged Ghanaians to ignore the “comical” efforts by Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to “divert” attention from the important things that matter to Ghanaians, with his recent post on social media in which he adduced 50 reasons to back his claim that President Nana Akufo-Addo has been a better President than Mr Mahama.
A statement issued by the Mahama campaign team signed by spokesperson James Agyenim-Boateng, on Thursday, 30 July 2020, said:
“This deliberate and comical attempt by Dr Bawumia to divert attention is as a result of the immense pressure he has come under after paling into insignificance following the selection of Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as running mate to Mr John Mahama in the December 2020 elections”.
The Mahama team said: “Prof Opoku-Agyemang’s sterling presentation at Monday’s ceremony in Accra, where she was out-doored as running mate, and her understanding of the challenges confronting our country, as well as her realistic and concrete achievable policy response to some of these challenges have clearly unsettled the Vice-President”.
“While Dr. Bawumia prefers to focus on his maligned economic analysis, Prof Opoku-Agyemang has chosen to focus on the critical issues of the economy, which bother on the quality of life of Ghanaians”, the statement added.
Meanwhile, the NDC has also been accusing the Vice President and the NPP government of massaging the economic figures of the country.
According to the NDC legislator for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, Ghana's fiscal deficit during the presentation of the mid-year budget review is clearly bad.
YEN.com.gh also earlier reported that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says they are ready for the comparison of achievements challenge being advanced by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
The Vice President in a Facebook post on Tuesday, July 28, stated 50 achievements of President Akufo-Addo which make him superior to former President John Mahama.
The NDC in a counter post statement has outlined what they say are 60 deliverables of the former president John Dramani Mahama.
