The Minority MPs are mocking Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, saying he has gone into a deep sleep when his often-hyped economics wizardry is needed to solve current economic challenges.
At a press conference on Friday, March 18, 2022, Ranking Member on the Energy Committee in Parliament, John Jinapor, blamed the vice president for leading President Nana Akufo-Addo’s Economic Management Team to failure.
“The economic management team under Dr Bawumia has failed woefully…the vice president has gone into comatose. He is nowhere to be found.
“This is the time he has to demonstrate leadership. This is the time government must show it cares for the people. All we hear government do is whining and whining and whining,” he said in a video sighted by YEN.com.gh.

The strong words by Mr Jinapor, who is MP for Yapei/Kusawgu in the Savannah Region, come on the back of national discussions about Ghana’s dire economic situations.
According to experts, the constantly rising cost of petrol, diesel, and other fuels, rising food inflation and general inflation, inadequate revenue, and unsustainable debt figures point to dangerous times for Ghanaians.
Mr Jinapor told journalists at the press conference that the Economic Management Team of this government is to blame for the economy's current woes.
“If I were the vice president, what I would be doing is to tender in my resignation as the head of the Economic Management Team. His performance has been abysmal,” the opposition MP stressed.

Samira Bawumia Describes Husband As True ‘Economic Wizard'
Samira Bawumia, the wife of the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, is likely to stoke a major controversy by describing her husband as a true economics wizard.
According to Samira, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s deep economic knowledge must be former President John Mahama’s yardstick in selecting a running mate.
In a report published by GhanaWeb, the wife of the vice president said during an interview recently that Mr Mahama, who is tipped by many to return to the Jubilee House in 2024, “lacks vision” in choosing a running mate.
