Stop wasting our ears; your promises are lies – Kwakye Ofosu replies Bawumia

A former deputy communication minister, Mr Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has asked Vice-president Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to stop disturbing Ghanaians because he (Dr Bawumia) is championing a government of lies.

His comment is in response to Dr Bawumia’s Facebook post, in which he listed a number of promises that the NDC said were impossible to achieve but, according to him, the Akufo-Addo-led government had made them possible.

Through the same medium, Mr Kwakye Ofosu also listed a number of promises made by the government which he described as lies.

His post read:

“Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia should stop wasting our ears and time.

When he and his boss said they would build 88 District hospitals between July 2020 and July 2021, even a child knew it was a lie and it proved a lie.

When he promised in 2016 that starting from 2017, they would send $ 1 million to each Constituency every year, even a child knew it was a lie and it turned out to be a lie.

When he promised that no village will be without water within two years of an NPP government, it turned out to be a lie.

When he and his boss said they would reduce borrowing, even a child knew it was a lie. Today, they have borrowed more than all governments before them.

When they promised to grow the economy by above 10% each year, it turned out to be a lie.

When they said they would build a dam in each village in the Northern part of this country, it turned out to be a lie.

When they said they will fight corruption with the Anas Principle, it turned out to be a lie.

When they promised sky trains, it proved yet another lie.

When they promised to protect the public purse, you rather opened it up for systematic abuse and rape.

When they promised not to operate a family and friends government, they installed the most nepotistic government in Ghanaian history.

We in the NDC are pragmatists and deal with only what is real. We are not given to the telling of outrageous lies to win power.

We provide truthful leadership, not the lying type he is the champion of.

Below are details of Dr Bawumia’s post

“Dear Friends,
