Otukonor Blasts Bawumia Over Poor Economic Growth
The Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otukonor,has chided the Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for drawing back the economy into abys in the last two years.
He said the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has lost focus and abusing their office.
Speaking to Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7, Mr. Peter Boamah Otukonor said, “at the end of the day, we are being confronted with an economic growth module that is reliant on oil growth.”
He continued, “With all the theories of Dr. Bawumia… they still have to go back and resort to a very poor economic management module ,which is now the solution of a government that is supposed to be far better than us,” Mr. Otukonor said.
According to him, President Akufo-Addo’s bad governance has worsened the plight of the ordinary Ghanaian.
Mr. Otukonor added that this development was at odds with earlier indications from the Vice President, who was “very emphatic” that Ghana would be weaning itself beyond 2019.
Mr Otukonor is also accusing the current administration of cooking figures about the real state of the Ghanaian economy to deceive the international community as a way of wooing investors.
