Dr. Bawumia must answer his own 170 questions he put out in the media for the late vice president, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur to answer. This is the view of Fred Adomako, a youth organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the Corpus Christi ‘D’ Branch of the Lashibi Ward in the Tema West constituency of the Greater Accra Region.
It would be recalled that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia came up with some 170 questions on the economy of the country prior to the 2016 general elections and asked the then vice president Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur to provide answers to them. This became a major topic for discussion at the time but the vice president ignored the issue since according to him it was rhetorical. Dr. Bawumia and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) capitalized on that to make Ghanaians to believe that the late vice president was not on top of his game and had no firm grips of the economic issues in government.
Speaking to Attractive Mustapha of Ghanapoliticsonline.com on the sidelines of the funeral of the late vice president, Fred Williams Adomako, also known as Phreddy Plies said “Dr. Bawumia must be able to answer his own 170 questions he came up with in the heat of the 2016 elections in memory of the late veep since Ghanaians like myself would love to know the kind of answers he was going to use to mark the script of the late veep if he had wasted precious time to answer him”.
According to him, the best tribute he expected Dr. Bawumia to read on behalf of the NPP-led government was to read answers he had for his own 170 questions, adding that “It will only be fair for the vice president to provide answers to his own questions in memory of the late vice president.”
He said the vice president must by his own measure prove to Ghanaians that he is on top of just his own game by providing answers to his own questions.
“This must not be a difficult task for Dr. Bawumia since they are questions he claim he sat down to think through before asking hence must be able to answer them without sweating. He either provide answers to Ghanaians now or publicly admit that he had no idea about the things he said while campaigning but was only out to tarnish the image of the late vice president and the NDC as a whole,” he said.
