Former Deputy Information Minister under the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama led administration, Felix Kwakye Ofosu says Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is an over hyped commodity
According to him, the master economist is not as good as the NPP paints him to be in the face of challenges faced by the Ghanaian economy as well as emerging issues on the depreciating cedi
He made this known while reacting to an article praising him as the best handler of the cedi by a Lecturer of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Dr Muazu Ibrahim
Dr Muazu Ibrahim had among other things argued that notwithstanding the controversy on the depreciation of the Cedi, its management under current Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is the “best for any first three years of any government within their first term since 1992.“
According to data provided by the academic, the average depreciation of the Cedi since 2017, when it came under the management of Dr Bawumia, has been 8.73%, the best average rate for the first three years of an administration since the Fourth Republic began in 1992.
But Ofosu Kwakye noted that the Lecturer who wrote article is a member of the governing party and therefore a clear indication that apart from members of his party who sings his praise, he’s not really good at what he does.
He said ” When self-serving articles have to written by NPP partisans in praise of you,then you cannot be that good.What do they say about quality beads not rattling?” ; while reacting to an article headlined.
