Prove you’re an economist – Bawumia to Veep

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has dared vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur to prove that he is an economist by answering the 170 questions he put to government on the state of the economy.

The Vice Presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) said at a rally in Pusiga in the Upper East region that he is surprised Amissah-Arthur has failed to address his concerns.

According to him, he has presented a fine opportunity to the vice president to convince the electorate that he understands issues related to the Ghanaian economy.

“The vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur and the economic management team went into hiding, they said they will answer at the right time and now they say these are not questions. I [Bawumia] challenge the vice president Amissah Arthur, prove your words as an economist, and address these 170 statements one by one, true or false.

“Analytically present your data, I want to see your data in answering these questions that is all; and prove yourself as an economist. We have to be serious about mismanagement of this economy,” Dr. Bawumia said at the Gbewaa College of Education’s chapter of the Tertiary Education Students Confederacy (TESCON).

He urged Ghanaians to kick out the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government under President John Mahama because it has mismanaged the economy.

“The extent of mismanagement and the lack of understanding of this economy, when I presented the statement of the economy, the NDC said I was lying so I presented that with 170 statements of facts and I said true or false; Discuss.”

“The NDC government cannot pay the National health insurance, free maternal health, teacher and nursing trainees allowance, feeding grants, school feeding, contractors, youth employment among others so where is the money? Every major social intervention they say there is no money; but somehow magically the money appears when it is time for create, loot and share. There is money only when it’s time for SADA, GEEDA, WOYOME, KARPOWER, SUBAH, AMERI POWER and every corrupt deal there is money for it,” the former deputy governor of the Central Bank said.
