Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is expected to deliver a major address on Ghana’s economy tonight, Yen.com.gh can report.
The address will be held at the Cedi Conference Centre, Department of Economics, University of Ghana at 7 pm.
Deputy minister for information, Pius Enam Hadzide, said Bawumia would outline the various interventions and milestones achieved under the Akufo-Addo administration thus far in his address.
“The vice president would also lay out the next steps going into the second term of the administration,” the deputy minister said.

Meanwhile, in an earlier Yen.com.gh report, Bawumia called on Ghanaians to massively reject the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, in the upcoming general elections.
Speaking at the commissioning of a Nursing Training College at Nkanchina in the Kpandai District of the Northern Region, Bawumia said the former president is woefully incompetent to be the president of Ghana again.
According to him, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s first term in office outclassed the performance of Mahama and the NDC administration who was in charge of running the affairs of the country for eight years.
Also, the vice president’s wife, Samira, mocked Mahama’s promise to create one million jobs if elected president in the December 7 polls.
Mahama in one of his campaign rallies promised to put Ghanaians back to work by creating one million jobs in fours when he regains the presidency.
The governing NPP in January selected Akufo-Addo as its presidential candidate in the upcoming general elections, slated for Monday, December 7, 2020, to set up a third straight head-to-head scramble for Ghana’s presidency against Mahama.
Akufo-Addo defeated Mahama in 2016 with 53.8 percent of the valid votes cast.
