Dr. Bawumia noted that, ‘in view of this we need to select a decisive leader with vision and direction. We need a trustworthy leader who can give us an economy that we can be proud of, and that leader is Nana Akufo-Addo.’
He described the NDC government’s attempt to attribute the country’s economic woes to the fall in the prices of gold and cocoa as laughable.
Dr. Bawumia added that gold prices from 2009 to date are on average 172% higher on the international market than they were under the 8 years of the NPP, adding that ‘the problem is not gold or cocoa prices. The problem is that this government has mismanaged the economy and, as a result, has placed untold hardships on Ghanaians.’
‘Ghana now has oil. Under the NPP, there was no oil. They (NDC) have borrowed over $20 billion and still there is no money. They (NDC) have received tax revenue much more than any government, and yet still we need a bail out from the IMF,’ he stated.
Dr. Bawumia maintained that President Mahama and his NDC government can there not complain of lack of resources.
‘But where is the money? When we need money to pay contractors, teachers, nurses etc., the NDC says there is no money. But when schemes like SADA, GYEEDA, and the purchasing of sanitary pads spring up, they will find the money,’ Dr Bawumia stressed.
In view of this, he told the delegates that ‘we need a decisive leader who will transform this country and that leader is none other than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. His vision for this nation has been clear and consistent, and will deliver prosperity for all.’
