Adongo Explains Why Bawumia Is Wrong to Blame Covid-19 And Ukraine-Russia War For Ghana's Economic Challenges

MP for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, has said he is surprised that Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has joined the fray to wrongly blame Covid-19 and the Ukraine-Russia war for Ghana's economic challenges.

According to him, the Covid pandemic and the less-than-one-month Ukraine-Russia war only took advantage of pre-existing negative conditions in the economy.

He told a packed room of NDC youth at a forum on Monday, April 11, 2022, that a recent lecture by Dr Bawumia on Ghana's economic challenges was full of deceit and cooked economic figures.
