Sammy Gyamfi calls for removal of ‘underperforming’ Ofori-Atta, Bawumia
“First on the list is without doubt, Ken Ofori-Atta, who has proven to be unmitigated disaster when it comes to economic management,”
The National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is begging the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to for once make him happy by listening to his plea to relieve his cousin, Kenneth Ofori-Atta, and his Vice President, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, of their roles.
Sammy Gyamfi stressed that the earlier President Akufo-Addo acts, the better for the economy and the country as a whole.
He was speaking to journalists on Wednesday, August 3 on the current difficulties occasioned by the economic challenges.
Already, the country is seeking an enhanced domestic programme (EDP) with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and several steps have been taken by the government to arrest the ailing economy.
For Sammy Gyamfi, the sure solution to the challenges is the dismissal of Mr Ofori-Atta as Minister of Finance and Dr Bawumia as Chairman of the hitherto “solid” Economic Management Team.
“First on the list is without doubt, Ken Ofori-Atta, who has proven to be unmitigated disaster when it comes to economic management,” the NDC national executive said on Wednesday, August 3.
“President Akufo-Addo’s cousin has run down our economy through expensive borrowings but his personal company data bank profits from,” he alleged.
He further slammed the Finance Minister, comparing him to “stale water in a bottle”.
“And the earlier President Akufo-Addo fires his underperforming cousin, the better for the economy and all of us.”
On Vice President Bawumia, he said there is nothing to be said about him, describing him as “jocular”.
“The once so-called solid Economic Management Team has now become a gracious team who have deserted their roles and are no where to be found in these difficult and critical times.
“It is about time our tired, clueless, incompetent and comical Vice President is finally relieved for new ideas and competent hands to take over and steer the Economic Management Team at this time of unspeakable hardships.”
