The minority in parliament has launched a scathing attack on Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for superintending over the current economic crisis.
According to the Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, the Veep, who is also the Head of the country's Economic Management Team, has become a risk to Ghana's economic prosperity.
Speaking on the floor of parliament, when he took his turn to debate the 2023 budget statement and economic policy document of the Akufo-Addo-led government, the NDC MP christened Dr Bawumia as the "Maguire" of economics.

Explaining further, he said the Vice President's poor management of the economy is just like how an English player, Harry Maguire, plays football and scores own goals.
"This 'Economic Maguire' went to Malata market and we were clapping saying this man is the best in managing foreign currency. The same 'Economic Maguire' was roaming at Central University delivering lectures on how to restore the value of the cedi."
He also added that when Dr Bawumia assumed the reins of power as the Head of the Economic Management Team, he failed to translate those theories into practice.
"Mr. Speaker when we gave this Maguire the opportunity to be at the center of our defense, he became the risk of our own goal. Dr. Bawumia, our Economic Maguire is now tackling all the fundamentals of our economy and destroying all of them," he said.
