Meanwhile, the NDC has described the claims by Dr. Bawumia blatant falsehood.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi described the lecture as false and plagiarized.
Mr. Gyamfi stated that some of the projects listed by the NPP are projects executed by the John Mahama administration.
“Bawumia’s presentation on the so-called infrastructural achievements of the Akufo Addo-government, is a compendium of blatant falsehoods, plagiarized Mahama projects and a comical celebration of mediocrity,” the NDC Commission Officer tweeted right after Bawumia’s presentation.
