The vice presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has lambasted  appointees of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama by labelling them as a bunch of people who do not read.

The renowned economist was reacting to a statement issued by the Ministry of Communications and signed by Dr. Edward Omane Boamah on issues he raised at the Wa Campus of University of Development Campus concerning the propagandist claims of the current government on infrastructural investments under their administration.

The statement accused Dr. Bawumia of churning out lies and fabrications aimed at deceiving the good people of Ghana in order to score political points.

“Government has noted a number of false and or misleading claims attributed to Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, the third time running mate to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer.  No amount of falsehoods however will distract Government from investing further in all sectors of the economy to enhance the wellbeing of Ghanaians”.

But in a sharp rebuttal, the economist cum politician in a post on social media platform Facebook on Wednesday, wrote that he had long suspected that members of the Mahama led administration do not read.

“What is clear to me (and confirms my long held suspicion) is that members of this government, handed the mandate to manage our destinies as a nation, do not read “.
