"Dr Mahamudu Bawumia will speak next month, in April 2022, also at a platform somewhere in Cape Coast, for you to see that the Government has rolled out a plan to deal with the issues," he said when Asempa FM spoke to him on the phone.

In 2020, the vice president grabbed headlines for stating that prudent economic decisions have held the cedi's fall against the dollar at the time, stating that the government had "arrested" the cedi and locked it up.

But a consistent fall of the cedi against the major trading currencies recently, ballooning public debt figures and rampant inflation caused many to ask why Dr Bawumia, regarded as an astute economist, had not uttered a word on a public platform.

“The economic management team under Dr Bawumia has failed woefully…the vice president has gone into comatose. He is nowhere to be found.
