Bridget Otoo has firmly criticized the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, in a tweet that has predictably evoked varied opinions across the political divide.
The former TV3 newscaster, now working with Metro, did not hold back in labeling the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as the ‘liar-in-chief’ following his critique of Mahama’s last-minute economic policy.
In a tweet, Bridget Otoo reminded Bawumia that he and Nana Akufo Addo have yet to fulfill most of the promises they made to the people of Ghana. Despite this, he continues to mock Mahama’s new policies for Ghana in the run-up to the 2024 elections. Bridget suggested that instead of tearing down Mahama’s proposals, Bawumia should focus on presenting his own plans and what he has to offer the Ghanaian people.
The liar in chief @MBawumia thinks it’s 2015/16 on his book-conomist campaign. May I remind him that it’s 2023, he hasn’t been able to show that he’s capable of fixing anything in the economy. Instead critiquing someone’s policy can he actually tell what his own “vision” is?
During his ‘Thank you’ tour at Nalerigu, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia expressed to a lively audience that John Dramani Mahama has nothing beneficial to offer the people of Ghana, and therefore his attempt to regain power will be thwarted.
The Vice President and Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) also criticized Mahama’s 24-hour economy proposal, stating that he lacks innovative ideas. Bawumia believes that he represents the hopes and dreams of a new Ghana, while Mahama is a thing of the past.
“John Mahama is going round the whole country and promising everything to everybody. It is as if he has never been president of this country before. It is as if he has just landed from mass. “When he was president, did he create jobs, Did he tackle corruption, Did he issue the Ghana card, Did he bring mobile money interoperability, did he bring the Ghana property address system, did he bring the zongo development fund, did he bring the teacher training allowance, did he bring free WiFi to schools, did he bring paperless ports, did he bring gold for oil, did he bring free shs?
“All of there problems he couldn’t solve. It was the NPP government under Nana Akufo-Addo who solved all those problems” According to Dr Bawumia, he has brought greater ideas as a Vice President than former President Mahama as president. “Even me as Vice President, I have solved many problems.
“What idea did Mahama bring as a Vice President? Dr. Bawumia has brought idea, after idea, after idea. Dr Bawumia is expected to visit Yendi, Saboba and Bimbilla on November 21 as part of his tour.
