The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt has expressed his dislike for news outlets giving Vice President Bawumia too much high praise.
Speaking on Radio Gold’s 'Alhaji and Alhaji' political talk show, Saturday, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. cannot fathom why precedence is being given to the Vice President over the President.
Kwesi further said that after careful study of the pro-government tabloids he observed that “one thing that is being hyped or perhaps overhyped is Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia; anything he says is wisdom, anything he does is excellent and so on and sometimes one even gets the impression that it takes precedence over the President."
According to him various news outlets show a lot more interest in the Vice President than the President himself and has cited that on occasion where “both President and Vice have performed public functions at the same time; you find the President’s story on page 46 of the Graphic and find Bawumia’s story on the front page.
So it does appear that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is enjoying the limelight perhaps more than anybody else in this administration and sometimes it makes me wonder what actually is happening.”
He also stated that from the speech of the President he will clearly be running for a second term so all those who are pushing the Vice President for presidency should take a seat.
