Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Hon Isaac Adongo has accused the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia of lacking in-depth knowledge of the true state of the economy under the coronavirus crisis.
The was response was to banter the Vice President for chastising former President, John Mahama for criticising the economy.
The former president during a live digital conversation on Facebook dubbed “JohnMahamaLive” disclosed that the much-praised economy under Nana Addo-Akufo led government is now suffering just a month of coronavirus pandemic and it now on ventilators at the intensive care unit.
But Dr Bawumia chastised the former President and urged him to surround himself with credible data about the economy becoming an embarrassment with false statements.
Hon Adongo defending John Mahama stated that “what the Vice President is saying shows clearly that he did not understand John Mahama all because the Veep lacks understanding of the economy. H.E John John only made a simple statement about the economy suffering due to COVID-19 and all that the Veep could say was look at the data. In all his statements he was referring to data, but he couldn’t point out one instance to refute John Mahama’s claims.”
He continued that Bawumia failure to defend the economy as he claims indicates that “the economy is truly on ventilators under intensive care unit”.
