The Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo has called on Ghanaians to stop listening to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on matters of the economy.
According to Honourable Adongo, it is inappropriate for Ghanaians to be taking economic lectures from Dr Mahamudu Bawumia since he fails to back his statements with economic data.
The Bolgatanta Central legislator has charged on the Vice President following an outburst against former president John Dramani Mahama on matters of the economy.
“His Excellency John Dramani Mahama made a very basic statement. He said that the economy as a result of COVID-19 is in intensive care but you come back and you tell us to look at the data and that the data shows that the ex-president was churning out untruths but you are unable to point out a single point.
“Throughout his [Dr. Bawumia] statement, he kept saying the data shows, the data shows, and he is unable to point out one single data that shows [something]. But the reality is that; is the economy really in intensive care? The answer is yes.
“I want to ask Dr Bawumia one thing; in saying that John Mahama should look at the data, do you have COVID-19 data? Because John Mahama is saying the economy as a result of COVID-19 is in ICU.”
“If you are disapproving and saying he should look at the data, then show us the COVID-19 economy data but you don’t have it and then you keep throwing English around that we have done better. I indicated to you people that you shouldn’t even be listening to Dr Bawumia because he doesn’t even understand the economy,” the Bolgatanga Central MP added.
