Bawumia Economic Lecture Ghanaians are eager to hear your response – Bawumia tells Veep

In a statement from Dr Bawumia's office, it said they had compiled 170 of the claims made at the lecture for the NDC to respond to them, since it is taking them too long to do so.

The Vice Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called on Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur to officially respond to the claims he made during his public lecture weeks ago.

This was contained in a statement released by the office of Dr Bawumia today (Wednesday).

“We note that the expected comprehensive response from government will be in the interest of the larger Ghanaian populace who are eager to hear from government officially on the true state of the economy and the economic record of the government, especially as the recently launched NDC Manifesto appears to be largely silent on the Economic Record of the 8-year NDC/ John Mahama government.”

The statement indicated that even though Amissah-Arthur said at the manifesto launch of the NDC that they were still “studying the Lecture and will in due course respond comprehensively” the NPP attached what they described as 170 statements and claims made during the lecture.

They, therefore, believe the ‘help’ they have offered would enable the NDC respond in a short time to the lecture.

“We look forward to a timely response from government as has been promised to all these 170 statements” the statement concluded.

Vice President Amissah Arthur at the NDC manifesto launch said that he had been advised not to respond to Dr Bawumia at a lecture but rather do so on campaign platforms. He, therefore, said that he will take one of Bawumia’s ‘lies’ on every campaign platform he mounts and explain to electorates why it is a lie.

“Part of my problem is that they [NPP] want to bamboozle us to make us believe what they are saying is true. What they are saying is false. Through this spurious analysis, he [Bawumia] cannot tell us that in the 8 years of Kufuor’s rule, there was a 459% increase in GDP… If even the economy grew by 8 percent a year, you only double that GDP in 9 years… It is not possible. I have decided that everywhere we go, I will take one of his lies and explain to you why they are lies,” the NDC running mate said.
