It’s Shocking Bawumia Has Spare Time To Engage In Social Media Banter Amidst Covid-19 – Mahama’s Spokesperson

Published

on


Campaign spokesperson for John Mahama, James Agyenim Boateng has expressed shock and outrage at Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for engaging in social media antics in a time when the nation is confronted by serious economic issues.

According to him, the 2020 mid-year budget review by Ken Ofori Atta reflects the woeful performance of the Akufo Addo government on the economy.

In a statement he said, ”the people of Ghana want to know how the Akufo-Addo government spent over 11 billion Ghana Cedis on COVID-19 without any meaningful improvement in the fight against the spread of the virus. For example, medical doctors, nurses and other health professionals consistently lament the inadequacy of Personal Protective Equipment, leading to some of them needlessly being infected and dying of COVID-19. Ghanaians want to know how the government spent 54.3 million Ghana Cedis on food packages in less than 3 weeks of lockdown in selected parts of the country, especially when many vulnerable people say that they did not benefit.”

He added, ”the government has failed to explain to Ghanaians how it provided “parallel fiscal numbers” to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank; in December 2019 (as part of the Article IV consultations), which differed from what the Minister of Finance was requesting Parliament to approve at the time; and in March and May 2020 when the government presented the same “parallel fiscal numbers” simultaneously to Parliament and the IMF negotiating team at the time the government applied for the US$1 billion COVID-19 Rapid Credit Facility (RCF), which represents 100% of Ghana’s allowable quota for borrowing from the Fund. 4. It is important to point out that borrowing to the limit of Ghana’s 100% quota from the IMF implies that Ghana has hit its borrowing limit with the Fund, at least for the time being.”

He further jabbed Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia to focus on helping the President rescue the failing economy and quit playing comics on social media.

”It is even more shocking to observe that at a time when the nation is confronted by such serious economic issues, which have forced the government to borrow to its very quota limit from the IMF, Dr Bawumia would still have some spare time to take to social media to engage in his trade mark comical, frivolous, ludicrous, outrageous and diversionary antics. Finally, the point must be emphasized that when the story of the Akufo-Addo government is told, it will be a litany of lies, falsehood, deceit, dishonesty and manipulation of figures under the auspices of Dr Bawumia as Chairman of the Economic Management Team.”

Chief Imam Painfully Wept Because of John Mahama And The NDC – Wontumi Reveals

Published

on


Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako has claimed that the Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun wept on the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama because of some promises he made for the Muslim community.

Speaking on the Wontumi Morning Show, Mr Boasiako also called Chairman Wontumi noted that the Chief Imam was unhappy about a pledge by the former president and the NDC to build morgues to preserve the bodies of Muslim corpses.

To him, there are more priorities for the Muslim and Zongo communities than a mosque.

“Yesterday, when the Chief Imam spoke, he cried. He was crying because of what John Mahama thinks about the Zongos and Muslim communities. For him to cry, it represents a curse on John Mahama. It is like when your own parent weep over you for treating them bad,” Chairman Wontumi said.

Nananom, Why Are You Always Scared To Chastise ‘Troublemaker’ Akufo-Addo? Mahama Asks Chiefs

Published

on


National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has bemoaned how chiefs are quick to condemn him when he goes wrong but reluctant to do same to President Akufo-Addo.

Addressing the chiefs and people of Jinijini in the Berekum West constituency of the Bono Region on Monday, 28 September 2020, Mr Mahama said since President Akufo-Addo took office, his governance has been replete with electoral violence, intimidation, fearmongering, discrimination, shutting down of radio stations critical of him, killing of journalists, stifling of press freedom and involving his friends and family members in corrupt deals such as the Agyapa Royalties Agreement and the now-botched PDS power contract.

He quizzed why the chiefs and elders have been quiet on all these misdeeds under Akufo-Addo.

“So, Nananom, we are both your children. And every parent knows which one of his children is the troublemaker and the ‘patapaa’ one. But often, you generalise your reproach and we all take your advice but it is now time for you to call out the troublemaker by name”, Mr Mahama told the traditional leaders directly.

“Prior to western democracy, you were the custodians and rulers and, so, you have the opportunity to talk when things are going wrong. However, oftentimes, it appears that when one of your children is on the throne, you are unable to chastise him for anything because you are scared to do so””.

“But whenever your other child ascends the throne, you’ll hear people asking: ‘Where are the wise people of our land? Everybody criticises him. But you must be balanced in chastising both children whenever they go wrong”, Mr Mahama noted.
