Election 2016 Do your worst – NPP challenges Amissah Arthur

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. But the NPP has challenged him to stop the 'panic reactions' and rather respond to Dr Bawumia.

Challenge Dr Mahamudu Bawumia if you can.

This is the daring statement made by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur.

Addressing a press conference dubbed ‘Promises made, promises broken’ the NPP’s Policy Adviser for the 2016 elections Boakye Agyarko said the Vice President was in a better position to hold a lecture to respond to Dr Bawumia.

“Nobody in the NDC has been able to come out to deny these facts that were put out by our Vice Presidential Candidate two weeks ago. We are still waiting for Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur to attempt a defence unless of course, it’s still raining.”

“Instead, what we have seen are panic reactions all over, for the Vice President to threaten to respond and then recoil, for the President to hastily address the nation in a two-hour broadcast to effectively launch the NDC manifesto four days before the scheduled launch.”

He added that from their ‘panic reactions’ it tells that the NDC, when given another four-year mandate, will only leave the country in a critical situation.

“The future under another Mahama term would indeed be bleak. From their own resource allocation for the next four years, the likely scenario is that we are very likely not to have any money to pay salaries next year.”

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.
