Hon. Isaac Adongo and Dr. Bawumia

Isaac Adongo, the Ranking Member on the Finance Committee in Parliament, has criticized Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for his lack of understanding of the 24-hour economy. This comes after Dr. Bawumia claimed that President John Mahama does not comprehend the 24-hour economy policy he is proposing.

Dr. Bawumia argued that the 24-hour economy policy is already being implemented in various sectors in Ghana, such as hospitals and fuel companies.

In response, Mr. Adongo dismissed Dr. Bawumia’s attack on Mr. Mahama’s 24-hour economy, stating that the Vice President’s opinion should not be taken seriously.

“Mr. Speaker, when we are trying to find a solution to deal with the economy when they leave power, H.E John Dramani Mahama is proposing a 24-hour economy. I heard somebody who has disappointed the people of Ghana, somebody who said one village, one dam and did something else, somebody who said one million per constituency and for 7-years we are still waiting for the one million dollars.

“He is saying that John Mahama does not understand the 24-hour economy. Mr. Speaker with all due respect, Dr. Bawumia learnt economics at ‘O’ and ‘A’ Level. He went to university and learned economics as his first degree. Did economics again at masters level and did economics again as PHD,” .

He highlighted Dr. Bawumia’s educational background in economics, including his studies at various levels and his experience as a consultant in Zimbabwe.

Mr. Adongo also criticized Dr. Bawumia’s handling of currency depreciation during his time as deputy governor at the Central Bank.

In summary, Mr. Adongo questioned Dr. Bawumia’s ability to understand Mr. Mahama’s 24-hour economy policy based on his educational background and past experiences.
