The running mate to Nana Akufo-Addo for the December elections, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has stated the Mills/Mahama-led government has rather doubled the hardships of the ordinary Ghanaian instead of improving it.
Speaking to Citifmonline.com whiles touring the Nalerigu-Gambaga constituency of the Northern Region on the third day of his nine-day Mamprugu tour, Dr. Bawumia said that Ghanaians over the last three years had become saddled with a government which is rather increasing and doubling their hardships.
Speaking in the ancient town of Nalerigu in his native Mampruli to round of the tour of the Nalerigu-Gambaga constituency, Dr. Bawumia said, “after lining up in the hot sun to cast our votes, the least we could all expect was to have a government that solves problems and decreases our burden.”
He added: “Unfortunately for us, we have ended up with a government that has day in day out been making our problems worse and one which has failed to solve any of our problems. We certainly don’t deserve this.”
The NPP vice-presidential candidate described as unfortunate the lack of commitment of the current administration to solving the real problems of the Ghanaian people. Dr. Bawumia has this week been in the Northern Region for what his aides describe as a Mamprugu tour.**
