Former President John Mahama has once again slammed the Akufo-Addo government over its abysmal management of the Ghanaian economy.

Taking a dig at Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who claimed he has arrested the cedi and handed over the keys to the IGP,  Mr Mahama said the opposite is rather true as the Veep has rather been arrested.

Addressing National Democratic Congress (NDC) party members at the launch of an App for the Tertiary Educational Institutions Network TEIN wing of the party at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) Auditorium in Accra on Monday, March 21, Mr Mahama attributed the current economic hardship facing Ghanaians to the incompetence and mismanagement by the Akufo-Addo administration.

“…Daily price increases, fuel price adjustments and nose-diving currency which has rather arrested the person who said he had arrested it. The dollar has rather arrested him. So we are looking for him we can’t find him. We will ask the IGP if he has the key so that we could find where our Vice President was.”

“We are gathered at the time when our country is facing economic and social hardship. The Akufo-Addo led government that came to power on the back of mouth-watering promises to make life better for Ghanaians and ensure rapid development of our country has so badly mismanaged the economy. We have been plunged into the most debilitating economic crisis in our four decades,” he added.
