Ghanaians Await Govt’s Response On 170 Statements (Facts) Presented By Dr. Bawumia

The Office of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has noted the discussions on his Public Lecture on the theme – “The State of the Ghanaian Economy – a foundation of Concrete or Straw” - and continues to thank the General Public for their support before, during and after the event.

Though the government has till date not issued a comprehensive response to the Lecture delivered by Dr. Bawumia a fortnight ago, we are encouraged by the suggestions made by the Head of the Economic Management Team and Vice-President, H.E. Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, over the weekend in Sunyani, that the government is still studying the Lecture and will in due course respond comprehensively to the Lecture.

To aid the government and especially the Economic Management Team in their desire to respond to the lecture therefore, we have compiled at least 170 statements and claims made in the Lecture to which we look forward to a response from government.

We note that the expected comprehensive response from government will be in the interest of the larger Ghanaian populace who are eager to hear from government officially on the true state of the economy and the economic record of the government, especially as the recently launched NDC Manifesto appears to be largely silent on the Economic Record of the 8-year NDC/ John Mahama government.

Attached to this Press Statement is the list of 170 statements and claims made in the lecture. We look forward to a timely response from government as has been promised to all these 170 statements.  


……. Signed…….

Kwabena Boadu

(Press Secretary)
