The dollar has arrested Bawumia, We can’t find him – Mahama


Mar 22, 2022 , ,

Former President John Dramani Mahama has expressed concerns regarding Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s whereabouts at a time when Ghana is experiencing economic and social suffering.

According to him, the cedi appears to have arrested  Dr Mahamudu Bawumia since the country’s hardship has reached a level never seen in our fourth republic’s 30-year history.

The former President voiced great worry about recent increases in fuel price and other market pricing at the launch of the TEIN App on Monday at the UPSA Auditorium in Accra.

“Daily price hikes, fuel price modifications, and a nose-diving currency have rather arrested the person who claimed to have arrested it.” He’s been detained by the dollar. So we’ve been hunting for him but haven’t been able to locate him. “We’ll ask the IGP if he has the key so we can figure out where our Vice President is,” he said

According to John Mahama, the Akufo-Addo government has thrown the country into chaos after promising enticing programs.

“We have come together at a time when our country is experiencing economic and social difficulties. The Akufo-Addo-led government, which came to office on the back of mouth-watering promises to improve Ghanaians’ lives and assure the country’s speedy progress, has mismanaged the economy so horribly. We are in the midst of the most crippling economic catastrophe in our four-decade history.” “Indeed, we all recall those mouth-watering promises,” he continued, “including one by the incumbent President to transform this country Ghana within 18 months.”

Meanwhile, Ghana’s Information Minister, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, has announced that Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, will release details of the government’s initiatives to offset the impact of global economic troubles on the country.

This follows the cabinet’s quarterly retreat, which took place at Peduase Lodge from March 17 to 20, 2022.

Akufo-Addo endorsed steps aimed at reducing Cedi depreciation, upholding fiscal discipline, and offering assistance in the face of fuel price spikes, among other things, at the meeting.

According to a statement from the Information Ministry, the finance minister is anticipated to share these facts with Ghanaians later this week “following meetings with important social and economic players.”
