US Professor Blames Bawumia For Ghana’s Economic Woes

Bawumia plays blame game with <a class=Ghana's economic problems - Prof. Hanke"/>

A Professor of Applied Economics at John Hopkins University in the United State of America, Steve Hanke has cited Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as the one responsible for Ghana's current economic crisis.

Prof Hanke says Dr Bawumia as running mate to then Candidate Akufo-Addo promised to solve Ghana's problems

He says the Vice President after assuming office has rather been doing the opposite of what he promised the people of Ghana.

The Economic Professor comes on the back of the latest depreciation of the Ghanaian cedi against the major international trading currencies.

The Cedi is currently trading at GH₵10.31 to the United State Dollar and around GH₵11, GH₵12 Euros and British Pounds, respectively.

"#Ghana's VP Bawumia says he is 'into politics to help people solve problems'. SPOLIER ALERT: Bawumia is the one CREATING the problems. Today, I measured GHA's inflation at a stunning 81% /yr, nearly 2.5 TIMES the official rate", he tweeted on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.

Professor Hanke has taken keen interest in the economic issues in Ghana for some time now leaving many to question and wonder what his endgame or actual interest is in the country's scheme of things.

He has in the past asked the Akufo-Addo led administration to take responsibility for Ghana’s economic crisis and stop blaming the Russia-Ukraine war and the Covid-19 pandemic.
