The Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has advised Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to stop touting his own achievements and allow his supposed good works speak for him.
“In opposition, you sell hope. In power, your works sell you. You can’t apply the same opposition strategy when you have been in power for more than three years and expect that the people would take you seriously. Dr. Bawumia must understand this,” Ablakwa posted on Twitter.
Mr Ablakwa’s comments comes after the Vice President took on former President John Mahama after he described Ghana’s economy under President Akufo-Addo as being on ventilators.
According to John Mahama, it took only one crisis to expose the much-hyped strong economy the NPP had boasted of.
Dr. Bawumia who did not take kindly to what John Mahama took a swipe at the former President.
“My humble advice to former President John Mahama is [that he should] take a look at the data. This is not green book data. Take a look at the data before you speak. Otherwise, you will end up embarrassing yourself. When it comes to the data, it has been very clear; in agricultural growth, we have performed better; industry growth, we have performed better; inflation, we have performed better, on the interest rate, we did perform better; exchange rate depreciation, we have performed better. That is the data.”
