Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has admitted that even though former President John Dramani Mahama is indeed a nice man, he is so incompetent that Ghanaians must never give him the opportunity to be President again.
Speaking at the National Youth Rally of the New Patriotic Party in Tamale on Saturday, Dr Bawumia reminded the audiences about how under John Mahama’s presidency, public finances were in dire straits leading to a freeze on public employment and the cancellation of allowances for trainee nurses and teachers among others.
“People say that John Mahama is a nice man, oh yes, he may be a nice man, but he is a nice man who you give the economy and very soon you cannot get teacher trainee allowance, you cannot get nursing trainee allowance, you cannot pay your child’s school fees, you cannot get a job to do, agriculture will be declining, electricity prices will be going up, is this the kind of nice man we want?” he wondered.
The Vice President noted that the NPP has demonstrated competence in managing the affairs of the country and therefore deserved a second term come 2020.
The National Youth Rally which was held at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium had party bigwigs in attendance notably the Vice President, National Executives, key appointees in government among others.
