Energy Minister and Member of Parliament(MP) for Manhyia South, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, has said that no human on earth can tag the Vice President of Ghana with corruption.
According to him, even though there have been several allegations of corruption under the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led administration, mentions can never be made of the Vice President in any of the scandals.
“No Ghanaian will compare John Dramani Mahama and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and choose John Mahama. For Mahama, he’s indecisive, incompetent, and tainted with corruption. What happened to the interview he had when he was in Britain?
“No BBC journalist can sit with Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and even ask him whether he is corrupt. What about corruption are you going to ask him? Have you heard people mentioning Bawumia’s name personally and linking it to corruption? That comparison is what we want so that we will tell the people who is better and who is worse,” he said on Accra-based Asempa FM.
The Minister acknowledged that times are hard but he was optimistic that the NPP government has two more years to redeem the economy for the people of Ghana.
“By the time we will get to 2024, you will come and say that’s not what we said but rather a four-year horizon. 2024 election will be an interesting one,” he said.
