Bawumia has turned Mahama's 'Manchester United' economy into 'Stoke City' - Adongo

Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, accused Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia of turning the economy upside down during a lecture organized by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

To him, under the John Mahama administration, the economy which he likened to Manchester United, a renowned football club based in the United Kingdom then, has now reduced in status to Stoke City, another football club that now competes in the Championship, the second tier of English football, by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia-led NPP government.

"Ghana is on the verge of exiting the top 10 of investment destinations... If I were Dr. Bawumia I don't think I'll even get an erection when I go home, but this man is singing praises in this disgrace,” he mocked.

Mr Adongo made the comment at the NDC’s Public Lecture on the Ghanaian Economy in response to the government’s Town Hall meeting
