Mahama Receives Massive Reaction As He Gives Bawumia A ' Down To Earth ' Economics Lecture.

Yesterday, Mahama stormed the Central Region and he did not leave the region without meeting the National Democratic Congress party stakeholders. He surprisingly and unconsciously gave an economic lecture when he addressed the people.

Recall that, Dr. Mahamudu's Bawumia speech was one of the factors that increased Bawumia's popularity then and even now and also made Mahama's government unpopular. One such thing which remained dominant in the then running mate of Nana Addo, Bawumia's speech was the quoting of the inflation rate.

Mahama teased Bawumia for telling Ghanaians prior to the 2016 election not to consider the inflation rate but rather consider the price of the goods in the country. He expressed disappointment in Bawumia for now turning against his own words to Ghanaians now not to look at the prices of goods and services but rather look at the inflation rate. Mahama touted the NDC government for their maintenance of a single digit inflation rate for a long period of time.

Mahama dropped a simple message to Bawumia.

"Ghanaians will not eat a '11 percent' inflation rate. The truth is that when you go to the market, you cannot tell the vendor that because the inflation rate is 11 percent, he should reduce the price of the good. Fix the economy"

This is a practical or down to earth economics lecture. Check out the reactions of Ghanaians.
