Former President, John Mahama has thrown a shade at Vice President, Mahamadu Bawumia and the New Patriotic Party for now parading themselves as IT gurus.
Bawumia has of late been launching IT initiatives that according to him will go a long way to help curb corruption in the country.
Far from the IT initiatives Bawumia is launching, there’s one thing Ghanaians have been crying over and that is the dollar rate which keeps increasing by the day; a promise they made to Ghanaians that they will arrest the cedi with their economic tactics.
Former President John Dramani Mahama, who rounded up his nationwide “Thank You Tour” with a public lecture in Accra on Wednesday night made this known in a 14-page address that spanned thematic areas on the economy, corruption, youth unemployment, politicisation of state agencies, the former president attributed the current hardships to “bad leadership” and “misguided priorities in economic management”.
He directed a few lines of his address at the Vice-President, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia – believed to be a thorn in the flesh of the opposition party – and his recent statement on Digitalization of the Economy.
He accused Dr Bawumia, who is head of the Economic Management Team, of using digitalization to mask up the NPP’s poor handling of the economy.
While mocking the Vice President for touting himself as an “economic messiah” who has metamorphosed into an “overnight IT champion”, Mr Mahama was emphatic that the former’s lectures on digitization can in no way wish away memories of the economic distress Ghanaians are facing.
“No amount of digital propaganda will take away the excruciating hardships Ghanaians are going through. This our country Ghana will be liberated,” ex-president Mahama stated.
