An economist at the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), asked Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, to resign if he is not given the free rein to run the economy.
According to Prof Godfred Alufa Bokpin, it appears the Vice President lacks enough influence and control over the affairs of the Economic Management Team.
For this reason, the economist wants him to “take the bold decision” and resign in order to preserve his integrity.
“I sympathise with the Vice President. He is always at the face of the NPP’s economic engineering engine, we were told. I believe that if he had enough control maybe things would not be like this,” he said.
“If the Vice President feels uncomfortable about his role as the Chair of the Economic Management Committee and lacks the influence, he should resign. It would serve him better [and] the reason I’m saying so is that it will help him maintain his integrity. He has to take the bold decision,” he added.
