    Bawumia can’t be best Vice President ever – Sammy Gyamfi challenges Kofi Bentil

    The National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, has criticized Vice President of IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil, for encouraging Ghanaians to consider giving the New Patriotic Party flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, a chance in the December elections.

    Mr Bentil over the weekend encouraged Ghanaians to give Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia a “fair and objective hearing” in his his quest to become President.

    Mr. Bentil expressed the belief that if given the opportunity as President of Ghana, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would do a better job.

    According to him, Dr Bawumia “is like an advisor” as such his authority is restricted to specific areas of governance.

    Nonetheless, he noted Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has excelled in his role and has demonstrated qualities and achievements that make him stand out when compared to other individuals who have held the position of Vice President in Ghana’s history.

    Reacting to this, Sammy Gyamfi argued that Ghanaians had already given Dr. Bawumia ample attention in 2016 during his numerous lectures and forums. Gyamfi emphasized that as the chairman of the Economic Management Team, Vice President Bawumia should be focused on implementing concrete actions to revive the economy rather than engaging in lectures.

    Despite Dr. Bawumia’s role, Mr Gyamfi asserted that the Vice President has experienced significant failure and, in his view, cannot be trusted with the highest office in the land to effectively govern the country.

    “For your information, Ghanaians gave Bawumia ample hearing in 2016 when he held countless lectures and fora to propound lofty but deceptive economic rhetoric.”

    “At each of those lectures, Bawumia diagnosed the challenges of Ghana’s economy and proceeded to fix our problems rhetorically. Ghanaians were so much in awe of Bawumia’s “charm” and “wizardry” that they trusted him to manage Ghana’s economy. Need I remind you, that at a time when Bawumia as chairman of the Economic Management Team, has supervised the total destruction of the economy, what is required of him, is ACTION and not lectures? This is trite and you of all people should know that.”
