Dennis Miracles Aboagye, a presidential staffer and member of the communication team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) claims the National Democratic Congress (NDC) appears uneasy following Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia's address last Wednesday.

Aboagye suggests that the NDC should focus on outlining its plans for the country rather than critiquing the NPP's vision.

Taking to his social media platform, Aboagye wrote, "Obviously, the speech from the vice president has truly gone under the skin of the NDC, and they are jittery."

He highlighted Bawumia's ability to articulate 70 policies under 20 major pillars during his nearly two-hour address, describing it as a clear path for Ghana's development.

He said, “Dr. Bawumia spoke for just under 2 hours, and yet he managed to outline cogent, clear, and specific 70 policies under 20 major pillars as a path towards the next chapter of Ghana’s development."

Aboagye added, "John Dramani Mahama has been campaigning since May 2023, and yet, as of today, he has not been able to clearly state what his solutions are for the future of this country."

He urged the NDC to respect the people of Ghana by presenting their propositions, stating, "If they choose not to but continue in this comedy, that’s fine. The people are watching and would do the needful at the right time."

In Dr. Bawumia's address, he declared his intention to abolish the e-levy, if elected as President of Ghana.

The e-levy, introduced in 2022, has been a bone of contention since Bawumia had previously expressed his opposition to such levies and reinforced his commitment to a cashless economy.

"To move towards a cashless economy, however, we have to encourage the population to use electronic channels of payment.

“There will be no taxes on digital payments under my administration. The e-levy will, therefore, be abolished," stated Dr. Bawumia during his address.
