The National communications officer for the National Democratic Congress, Mr Sammy Gyamfi has ask Ghanaians to discard comments made by Kofi Bentil, requesting for listening ears for Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s upcoming lectures
Legal practitioner, Mr Sammy Gyamfi on Sunday 4th February 2024, in his response to Mr Kofi Bentil reminisced various opportunities provided by Ghanaians to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for series of lectures yet, nothing profitable wasn’t birthed out hence, there was no need.
“I just read your write-up calling on Ghanaians to give Bawumia a hearing, ahead of his needless and useless lecture, scheduled for 7th February. For your information, Ghanaians gave Bawumia ample hearing in 2016, when he held countless lectures and fora, to propound lofty but deceptive economic rhetorics.
“At each of those lectures, Bawumia diagnosed the challenges of Ghana’s economy and proceeded to fix our problems rhetorically. Ghanaians were so much in awe of Bawumia’s “charm” and “wizardry” that they trusted him to manage Ghana’s economy.
“Need I remind you, that at a time when Bawumia as chairman of the Economic Management Team, has supervised the total destruction of the economy, what is required of him, is ACTION and not lectures? This is trite and you of all people should know that. As for your claim that Bawumia has only been an advisor to the failed Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government, even President Akufo-Addo and Bawumia himself will disagree with you on that.” He said
Mr Sammy Gyamfi questioned Mr Kofi Bentil for awarding all praises to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for implementing most policies enrolled by the this administration.
“If that were so, why do you and other NPP surrogates continue to give Bawumia credit for the Agenda 111 initiative, the Drone delivery system, government’s so-called digitalization initiatives, among others? Can you tell us why President Akufo-Addo in his 2018 SONA, lauded Bawumia’s “stellar leadership” of the Economic Management Team, and credited him for what he described as positive economic results at the time?” Sammy Gyamfi asked.
“If the logic of your argument is to be accepted, then on what basis did Bawumia in opposition, pose 170 questions to then Vice President, Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur? What do you take Ghanaians for Mr. Bentil? Some zombies?
“It is a fact that your new Boss Bawumia, is responsible for the unprecedented economic mess Ghanaians are currently faced with. No amount of political subterfuge can change this fact.
“Accept this truth and spare yourself the ordeal of trying to whitewash a failed and discredited economic messiah, who has proven to be hopelessly empty and pathetically dishonest. This agenda of yours is dead on arrival (“yaamutu”), try another one please.”
