Bawumia has not been sidelined in government - Kar


Bawumia, a complete neophyte in economics, has lied his way into superstardom. For NPP to put Bawumia as head of economic team is a complete disservice to the country.

How soon we forget as a nation! It is Bawumia as deputy governor of BoG in 2007 under Kufuor who redenominated the cedi and foolishly pegged the cedi 93 pesewas to US$1 using some convoluted macroeconomics assumptions. The cedi has never been the same - the cedi is still grasping at straws.

After horrendously criticizing the IMF induced NDC budget and lying about Ghana's debt stock vis-a-vis GDP, this bloke takes off to China and mortgages Ghana's bauxite in lieu of $19 billion Chinese loan which he refuses to say it's a loan. Up till now Ghana Parliament has no clue of Bawumia's MoU with the Chinese.

Bawumia is a complete disaster for the country, and Akufo-Addo will do well to sideline him based on his dealings with the Chinese. Any African with leadership ambition such as Bawumia should be watched very closely, and I am glad NPP has caught on with Bawumia lies and innuendos about his knowledge in economics.

Well Done, NPP!!!
