Yesterday, the New Patriotic Party acclaimed President Akufo- Addo as its current presidential candidate for the 2020 General Elections.
The president in turn chose Vice President Bawumia as his running mate. As part of Bawumia’s Vice Presidential Candidate nominee’s speech, he called the main opposition National Democratic Party(NDC) incompetent. Apparently, that had not come as surprise albeit as Bawumia is fond of the word especially against the NDC and its executives.
This was what he had to say, “We recall that after eight years in office, the results of their economic management was declining growth, high and constantly rising inflation, rapidly depreciating currency, loss of business confidence, high unemployment, poorly regulated finance sector, a collapsing NHIS, no ambulance system to speak about, dumsor, 45 percent average annual increase in electricity prices, increases in taxes, freeze on public recruitment and cut on research allowances…Finally, they ended with the IMF for a bailout.”
As typical of the Vice President, he further reiterated that the NDC wants to be given an opportunity to rule the nation again just to ditch out an “additional dose of their incompetence”.
