The Former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini has taken a swipe at Ghana’s Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on the much talked about ‘first term achievements’ of the Akufo Addo led Government, describing them as ‘needles’.
According to Mr. Fuseini, there is no need for the Vice President to waste time touting over some policies and programmes of the government that were poorly implemented and never brought any significant impact to the Ghanaian people especially the ‘One village, One Dam’ Initiative.
Speaking on ‘Daybreak Upper East’ Programme on A1 Radio, the Former Law Maker said, “on the ticket of promises, you [Dr. Bawumia] have no track record. Governing a nation is not a comedy. It’s not a child’s play. If you said you have dug One Village One Dam and there is no water in the dam, what does it mean?. Is this an achievement?
He further said, “Nana Akufo is noted to have said that he won election 2016 with about 1million votes. In the 2020 elections, even with pardon in some polling stations, Nana Akufo Addo barely crossed the 500, 000 mark. These are the issues that Bawumia should be worried about. If you say that you have achieved all these, how come Ghanaians have not appreciated you enough?”
Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia after listing about 85 achievements in his government’s 1st term on his Facebook wall, gave a firm indication of a smooth take-off by the Akufo-Addo government to implement its second term Programmes after the approval of its 2021 budget. He said, the government has implemented one village one dam and constructed over 400 dams.
Mr. Fuseini however urged the Vice President to think of whether or not the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will consider him in the 2024 Flagbearer position but not ‘governance comedies’.
