NDC Dr. Bawumia is an indisciplined politician trained by Akufo-Addo — NDC

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has criticised Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, labelling him as the country's most indisciplined politician in history.

The NDC expressed little surprise in view of this observation, attributing Dr Bawumia's behaviour in politics to his association with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Dr Bawumia had dismissed the 24-hour economy proposal put forth by NDC flagbearer John Mahama, asserting that key institutions such as hospitals, fuel companies, and more already operate around the clock.

He suggested that Mr Mahama lacks an understanding of the policy he aims to implement as president if elected in 2025.

In response to Dr Bawumia's claim that he had not been president before, Mustapha Gbande, a Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, criticised the Vice President for his lack of candour and decency in politics.

Mr Gbande viewed the above statement as a sign of desperation on Dr Bawumia's part to ascend to the presidency and continue with Nana Addo's influence on the resources of the country.

Mr Gbande, speaking on Accra 100.5 FM's Ghana Yensom morning show, asserted that Dr Bawumia was responsible for the corrupt deals under President Akufo-Addo's administration.

He expressed disappointment in the vice president's attempt to distance himself from the controversies of Akufo-Addo's term in his pursuit of the presidency.

He reminded the vice president that there is no single asphalted road in the North East region, the home region of the vice president.

He explained that these are the matters that should have engaged the mind of the vice president.

According to Gbande, there are numerous unanswered questions, particularly concerning the highly-discussed Gold-for-Oil deal, Dr Bawumia touts.

He accused the vice president of reducing governance to the Dombo-Busia mantra, claiming it to be the only positive accomplishment during his tenure.
