The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia as a terrible liar “who does not have character” to lead the country.
Speaking on Dwaboase on Power 97.9 FM, the former Minister argued the election of Bawumia as the flagbearer of the governing NPP meant the government does not regard Ghanaians as serious people.
Dr Bawumia won the NPP presidential primary with 61.43% of total valid votes cast early this month l to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Election 2024 as flagbearer.
However, many of his promises in the run up to the 2016 and 2020 elections have not been fulfilled by the government.
Notable among them are the eradication of open defecation in all villages, potable source of water for all villages, the turn around of Ghana’s economy in 18 months of their first tenure.
These promises and many others such as a stable currency and economy are yet to materialise, pushing many Ghanaians to tag him as a liar.
Reacting to how most Ghanaians perceive Bawumia, Asiedu Nketia indicated that the election that brought him and President Akufo-Addo to power was a divine intervention to show Ghanaians how bad and empty their leadership was.
“He is a serial liar who have lied to Ghanaians countless times, so voting him to lead the NPP is not something to be bothered about,” Asiedu Nketia stated.
” You cannot repackage Bawumia for Ghanaians. The people are wise now,” he said in Akan.
To him, Ghanaians have seen the difference between this government and the erstwhile John Mahama administration.
He is convinced with the policies the NDC have lined up for Ghanaians ahrad of the 2024 elections coupled with the track record of former president John Mahama, Ghanaians will boot out the NPP out of power with Bawumia as it’s leader.
Asked why he was convinced, Asiedu Nketia said Bawumia cannot defend his lies if given the opportunity.
