Ghana’s Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has charged the Minority in Parliament to read in order to get themselves informed on the matter of the $2.25 billion bond issued by the government.

This follows allegations by the Minority that the bond was issued for cronies of the Minister of Finance and also did not go through the required process.

But responding to the claims Dr Bawumia who is currently in Washington attending the World Bank/IMF spring meeting told the media the Minority lacks “understanding in managing the economy.”

“It shows a lack of understanding. The minority has never understood this economy. It shows ignorance and I’m so sad this is coming from people who should know better,” he added.

He rather urged them to read for a better understanding.

“Maybe they should read a little… we are doing even much better…they are really demonstrating a lot of ignorance in the process of managing the economy.”
