Dr. Jonathan Asante Otchere of the Political Science Department of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) has attacked the credibility of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia going forward for the December 7 polls.
On Starr FM, the political analyst opined it will be difficult for electorates to take the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) seriously considering what Dr. Bawumia has already said about Ghana’s economy.
“The main advantage [for Mahama] is the fact that whatever Dr. Bawumia says whether it is heaven, or near heaven people will not believe him. Because he is suffering from a credibility crisis, that is the reason why he is not going on a promising spree,” Dr. Jonathan Asante Otchere shared.
According to the Political analyst, the hardships in the country including high unemployment make the work of National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer John Dramani Mahama easier
“The level of unemployment is so high and this idea of a 24-hour economy which he (Mr. Mahama) has suggested, thereby reducing electricity.
“People are going to get on board and we are going to see an increment in employment. Either casual, permanent whatever so many of the youth will get something done.
“Apart from that we have so many bad roads in this country and if you are going to engage in the construction of roads you are going to create jobs. Its auxiliary of course will be the hotels, people selling and then the micro economy will equally strive. That is something if you ask me is one way of re-growing the economy and getting it revamped. Neither than that, there is nothing like the magic wand,” Dr. Asante Otchere said.
