Headlines Stop Bawumia from boasting about ‘unnecessary’ things and address Ghana’s ‘dead economy’ — Franklin Cudjoe to Bawumia’s advisors

Franklin Cudjoe, Founder and President of IMANI Africa, has criticized Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), for boasting about the number of policies he has initiated during his tenure as vice president instead of addressing the country's current economic crisis.

In a post shared on Facebook on Monday, June 24, 2024, Cudjoe highlighted that Dr. Bawumia's boasts about his policy achievements are overshadowed by the dire state of Ghana's economy.

He noted that even members of the NPP are questioning the impact of these policies and urging Bawumia to focus on the economic challenges the nation faces.

Cudjoe also pointed out the contradiction in Bawumia's statements, which undermined claims that his role in the Akufo-Addo government was merely advisory and therefore not responsible for the economic difficulties.

"Dr. Bawumia says he has passed the Veep exams and scored 33 policies against 0 for JM. His new nickname is now 'Bawupeezey,' which an NPP youth group in London calls him," Cudjoe wrote.

He continued, "James Takyi, a strong NPP faithful, asked me: 'How was he able to initiate these 33 policies if he was not in charge as he says? And when is he going to address the damaged economy he was in charge of?'"

Cudjoe urged Bawumia's advisors to steer him away from boasting about relatively minor achievements and instead focus on addressing the economic issues that have left millions of Ghanaians in poverty.

"I do not think his handlers are being helpful to him. They need to let him stop boasting about things that pale into insignificance when compared to the economy he so scholarly educated us on in opposition, which had died on his watch, leaving millions of Ghanaians dirt poorer since 1957," Cudjoe added.
