I rejected running mate offer – Bawumia reveals

Vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has revealed he rejected the initial offer to partner President Akufo-Addo when he was approached in 2007.

He explained that, as then deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana, he was not ready to join the hostile political terrain.

“When I was requested to come into politics, I was a bit hesitant and my initial answer was no” he stated while addressing a conference on monitoring and evaluation at the University of Ghana.

But, Dr. Bawumia said he made a u-turn when his then boss who was Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Paul Acquah convinced him to rescind his decision.

Investing In MenzGold Is Better Than Trusting Akuffo Addo’s Government – Manasseh Awuni Azure

Published

on

Investigative journalist Manasseh Awuni Azure says he is not really impressed with the performance of President Akufo-Addo thus far.

In a Facebook post, he stated “In 2017, I was optimistic. Today, I look back and realize that trusting this government is worse than investing in Menzgold. Even they could not resist the temptation to continue the SADA(NDA) and GYEEDA(YEA) scandals they used as their campaign message in 2016. “

He went on to state;

“I wrote a long article praising President Akufo-Addo when he declared war on galamsey. In my view, it was genuine. I wrote a long article praising the president when he appointed Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor,” he says.

“I praised the Attorney-General and the government for their fight against corruption when the A-G ordered the police CID to investigate into the Robbing the Assemblies story even before I finished the series. In 2017, I was optimistic. Today, I look back and realize that trusting this government is worse than investing in Menzgold. Even they could not resist the temptation to continue the SADA (NDA) and GYEEDA (YEA) scandals they used as their campaign message in 2016. I’m just beginning to realize that even the soap I got instead of the smartphone I paid for is fake. Yes, fake soap.”

It is obvious the award-winning journalist feels ‘scammed’ by the dispensation of the president after what he says is a below-par performance which makes him lose hope in his leadership.
