Ghanaians Want You To Talk, No Excuses- Kwame Jantuah Shades Dr Bawumia

A leading member of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) Kwame Jantuah has thrown shades at the Vice President of Ghana, H.E Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for failing to address Ghanaians on the ailing economy. According to him, there is nothing less than an excuse the Vice President gave about being engaged in other matters of the economy such as digitization and transformative programs.

He argued on GHOne's morning show that all that Ghanaians expect of the Vice President is a candid response to complaints about the economic state of the country, and what is being done to alleviate their plight. He stressed that it is disappointing of the Vice President to have been silent all these while when many had identified with him to be vociferous and smart in responding to criticisms, and economic concerns.

Mr Kwame Jantuah continued that it's easy for any Ghanaian to believe that the Vice President is losing out on his relevance as the Head of the Economic Management Team when he is now spotted as championing initiatives that ordinary is an obligation of the Ministry of Communication and Digitization.

"I don’t buy his excuse. The digitization work he is doing, isn’t it the work of Ursula?" he questioned.

Mr Jantuah contended that for some time, Vice President Dr Bawumia has lost his voice and influence given that briefings about the economy had now become a task of the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta. He mocked if there is anything meaningful the Vice President has to say in the next few weeks.

"Who talks about the economy apart from the Finance Minister? For quite some time, the Vice President has been silent on it. And Ghanaians are expecting him to talk. He should tell that to the marines," he stated.

In his concluding remarks, Mr Kwame Jantuah alleged that the Vice President is being sidelined in terms of engaging Ghanaians on political and economic affairs. He suspects that there is more to the matter than what many believe is a deliberate decision by the Vice President to refrain from passing comments about the Ghanaian economy in recent times.

"I see it as he is being sidelined," he emphasized.
