Sammy Gyamfi, the communications officer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has voiced reservations over Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s preparedness to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 presidential contest.

Gyamfi claims that the economic decline in the country is the result of Dr. Bawumia’s leadership.

Sammy Gyamfi called Vice President Akufo-Addo and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo “incompetent and corrupt” during an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Face to Face on Citi TV, blaming them both for the struggles that Ghanaians endure.

“Mates [conductors] are relevant and important, you can be a good driver but with a bad mate you will fail. This mate, Dr Bawumia is a very incompetent, corrupt, clueless mate. And that is why he has failed in the primary responsibilities President Akufo-Addo entrusted in him, which is the management of the economy.

“The dollar then was GH5, is now GHC13.50pesewas, to the importer what is the use of Bawumia? Where are the strong economic fundamentals, where the concrete roads he promised? Where are the harbours he promised people of Cape Coast.

“The reason why Dr Bawumia can talk like this is because he has no respect for the truth. And he has no respect for the good people of this country. Either than that he should be displaying remorse for the crime he and his boss [President Akufo-Addo] and the entire NPP have committed against the people of Ghana.

“There’s no sector of this country today, there’s no metrics today which is better today than it was in 2016 when we handed over power to them.”

Gyamfi claims that because Dr. Bawumia was instrumental in the administration, he is unable to separate himself from the economic unrest.Given the considerable devaluation of the Ghanaian cedi, he questioned Dr. Bawumia’s economic strategy and criticised his unfulfilled promises.

“Let’s start with the economy. What was the rate of inflation in 2016 December? 15.4%, what is the rate of inflation today? About 23%, after it rose to 54%. Plunging over 800, 000 Ghanaians into poverty, because the government was so reckless to have impressed on the central bank to print for it GHC45 billion in a single year, 2020.

“Inflation is far worse today than it was under President Mahama [former]. Under Mahama, our economy was rated B-. Today all the sovereign credit rating agencies Moody’s, Fitch, rate our economy as junk CC and in some cases RD and so on. That is why we have been logged out of the capital market. Under Dr Bawumia’s leadership, our economy was discredited, you can compare.”

Gyamfi went on to criticise the administration’s performance, pointing out that under their leadership, inflation and poverty rates rose and Ghana’s credit rating was downgraded to a CC. He criticised the current administration for its failure to uphold economic stability and compared this to Mahama’s B- grade.
