Deputy finance minister, Cassiel Ato Forson, has described the NPP running mate Mahamudu Bawumia as a desperate politician interested in misinforming Ghanaians.
According to him, Bawumia has consistently distorted facts as a result of sheer ignorance of basic economic and finance concepts. The Deputy Finance Minister was reacting to a promise by Dr Bawumia that the NPP administration under Nana Akufo-Addo, will immediately abolish taxes on pensions introduced by government. Forson noted that Bawumia has been misled by media reports that skewed Finance Minister, Seth Terkper’s response to a question about taxes on pensions and allowances.
Meanwhile Dr Bawuimia has maintained that the NDC government is mismanaging the economy. According to him should his party be elected to office much efforts would be put in place in revamping the economy.
