According to him the President has managed the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis better. He therefore challenges anyone who has data to prove that any first-term government has provided more infrastructure than the Akufo-Addo administration to step up and provide the evidence.
He opined that some members of the opposition NDC, especially former president Mahama, have sought to downplay the infrastructure achievements of the Akufo-Addo administration in the vain hope that Ghanaians would not independently check.
Bawumia's reaction comes in the wake of former President Mahama's Live Facebook interaction last week in which he said the economy under the leadership of President Nana Akufo-Addo was in the Intensive Care Unit following the COIVD-19 pandemic.
“Unfortunately, this government has used a lot of propaganda saying the economy has been the best that we have ever had since independence. Unfortunately, just one month of coronavirus the economy is in ICU. If we didn’t run to the IMF for the one billion rapid credit facility, it is possible that in the next month probably salaries would not have been paid and so our economy is on ventilators, and it needs thinking to rescue it from the ICU.” Mr Mahama said
Responding to this on Monday May 4, Dr Bawumia said :
“But I can say without any fear of contradiction, the data shows that in the history of the Fourth Republic there is no government that has provided as much infrastructure across all sectors in its first term than the first term Government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. If you want to challenge that please bring your data” he declared.
