The Special Aide to former President John Dramani Mahama has fired Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia over his recent campaign utterances at Kumawu.
Joyce Bawa Mogtari says Dr Bawumia is always engaged in deceitful politics.
She said Dr Bawumia and the current New Patriotic Party government is always interested in politics for votes and not the betterment of the citizenry.
In a Twitter post on Monday, May 22, Mr Mahama’s Special Aide insisted that Dr Bawumia is pushed by ambition to tell lies to become president.
“You campaign in poetry and propaganda and govern in prose, and it is apparent that Dr. Bawumia is being pushed by an inordinate ambition to become president!! He will soon crash!”
Dr Bawumia is reported to have said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has only built two factories in the country despite being the party that has governed the country most.
According to him, this means the NDC does not have any intention of industrialising the country.
Madam Bawa Mogtari has berated Bawumia for making such an “unfounded claim.”
Meanwhile, the NDC in a press statement issued on Monday, has vehemently rejected the allegations by Dr Bawumia.
According to the party, that is a barefaced lie.
“This claim by the Vice President is a barefaced lie. For the records, the erstwhile NDC/Mahama administration established strategic, high priority State-owned factories that anchored growth in key sectors of the Ghanaian economy.”
The party added that the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia/NPP government has not built a single factory since assuming the reigns of government in 2017.
“It is an undisputable fact that the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia/NPP government has not built even one state-owned factory since they took office on 7th January, 2017.”
“Their record relative to the establishment of state-owned factories is zilch. The claim by Dr. Bawumia that this NPP government has built over 150 factories is therefore palpable falsehood.”
