Former Deputy Finance Minister, Cassiel Ato Forson, has called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to, with immediate effect, ban his Vice, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia from speaking on matters of the economy.
According to him, the constant and persistent fall of the Ghana cedi must be attributed to what he terms misguided comments by Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
Speaking at the NDC public lecture on Ghana’s economy, Ato Forson accused Dr. Bawumia of falsifying facts and figures, insisting that any time Dr. Bawumia makes a speech on the economy, the local currency depreciates.
He insisted that the only viable way to save the cedi is for President Akufo-Addo to gag the Chairman of the Economic Management Team, Dr. Bawumia.
“I will urge the President to restrain his Vice President because anytime he speaks the currency moves. You heard him talk about the likes of the judiciary and the court systems. What has that got to do with the economic management team? He had nothing to say. He was just playing with numbers. And again, you know him and his credentials of lying with numbers.You could see lies. Our worst is better than your best and you say ‘boot for boot’? This one is more like boot for chalewote”.
