A founding member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe has said he is disappointed in Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia for not leaving up to expectation in the management of the Ghanaian economy.
According to the Ghana Ambassador to Serbia, Dr. Bawumia tricked Ghanaians into believing the NPP after winning political power was capable of solving all the challenges bedevilling the people of Ghana.
“He made us believe that the money was there and things were going to change when we takeover. I had a lot of hope in him but now I’m totally disappointed in him. Unless things turn around by the end of the year, then I can believe him again,” he told Bola Ray on Starr Chat Wednesday.
However, in spite of the heavy backlash from the public over the recent hardship and the rampant loss of jobs, Dr. Bawumia is of the view that, the current condition would have been worse if the NDC was in power.
“This was confirmed last week by Standard and Poor, a global rating agency which has upgraded Ghana’s ratings, sovereign credit rating from B minus to B with a stable outlook. And, this is the first upgrade that Ghana has received in 10 years. In fact, we should recall that the NPP under President John Agyekum Kufuor left office with Ghana’s rating at B plus.
“After 8 years of the NDC’s economic management, our ratings went from B plus to B minus. This is after 8 years! After only 20 months of new NPP government under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, we have been upgraded from B minus to B,” he noted at the national policy summit in Tamale.
