We’re doing in 20 months what hasn’t been done in 61 years – Bawumia

ghana waves news


Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has reiterated the government’s resolve to transform Ghana within the shortest possible time through the implementation of policies and programmes designed to make Ghana a modern economy.

According to him, after just 20 months in office, the Akufo-Addo Presidency has done more to digitize and formalize the Ghanaian economy and society than what has pertained in Ghana for several years.

“The Akufo-Addo Government is doing things, life-transforming activities and reforms, what we haven’t done as a nation over the past 61 years, in just in 20 months. We are implementing reforms that will provide the critical, soft infrastructure that will ensure that Ghana becomes a modern economy.”

“In just 20 months, we have implemented policies and programmes designed to formalise the economy and make life easier for both the ordinary Ghanaian and businesses. For instance today, through the use of technology, getting a Drivers’ Licence has been made easier and cut out the need to pay a middleman before accessing an essential service. This is certainly good for the ordinary Ghanaian and business.”

“This government is building a new, confident, modern Ghana through the use of technology and the implementation of critical reforms. We have delivered in this short period, and will continue to deliver in the coming days, months and years,” the Vice President maintains.

Vice President Bawumia touted the achievements of the Nana Akufo-Addo government in its short stay in office when he addressed participants at the UK-Ghana Investment Summit in Accra on Tuesday 16th October, 2018.

Outlining a number of critical building blocks for formalisation such as ensuring unique identification (Ghana Card, to be rolled out nationwide soon), location (National Digital Property Addressing System-GhanaPostGPS implemented), seamless payment system (Mobile Payments Interoperability implemented), justice delivery (E-case tracking ongoing), improved access to education (Free SHS, E-education ongoing), and facilitating business operations (paperless port, E-registration of companies, etc), Vice President Bawumia maintained that the government was committed to moving Ghana beyond aid while creating the environment for the growth of the private sector.

Other reforms, such as a streamlined, online process for passport acquisition, digitisation of all land records, injecting transparency into the procurement processes by making all processes easily trackable online, and the ongoing development of a national Emergency Number linked with the emergency services, fire and police services, and designed to give a caller’s location for faster response times were all part of the jigsaw, Vice President Bawumia stated.

“In the area of health, processes are underway to ensure the speedy supply of urgently required blood and medication to isolated, hard-to-access communities through the use of drones. The processes should be completed soon, and I’m happy to say that Government is not paying a pesewa for this. It is being funded by the private sector,” the Vice President disclosed.

Vice President Bawumia urged the investor-community to take advantage of Ghana’s business-friendly environment to engage their Ghanaian counterparts to set up shop, while pledging Government’s commitment to staying the course of formalisation.

“While we strive to make further efforts to make Ghana a leading business destination through the formalisation agenda, I will urge you to talk to your Ghanaian counterparts and explore ways we can work together to make Ghana better. Given what we have been able to do within this short period, you can rest assured that we are poised to achieve even more.

U/West NPP treasurer slams Bawumia over ‘reckless spending’

U/West NPP treasurer slams Bawumia over ‘reckless spending’
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia

The Upper West Regional treasurer of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Tanko Dauda Daniel, has criticized the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia over the decision to travel to the 2017 United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) meeting with a delegation of 16 people.

He said Bawumia’s action betrays the NPP’s stance against reckless spending by state officials, adding that he forsees a revolution in the country if such expenditure by government officials continued.

“I hope what I read about the delegation of the Vice President of Ghana and his wife is not true. Truth be told, if these things continue to happen under the government of the NPP, I can foresee a revolution in Ghana. The endorsement of Nana Addo and the NPP in the 2016 elections was an expression of a kind of last hope by the people.

For us to continue witnessing the kind of unreasonable and irrational expenditures by people in government makes nonsense of democracy. That is why it will get to a point where the people will revolt against the government because they have lost all their hopes in politicians,” he said.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who was an invited guest to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in 2017 travelled with a 16-member delegation when many other countries that attended had at most 5 delegates.

Some Ghanaians, including members of the main opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are criticizing the Vice President and the government over the action, describing it as a waste of scarce national resource.

But Tanko, who is also a lecturer at the University for Development Studies(UDS) took to Facebook to caution the government desist from such practices because it risks being booted out of office.

“It will get to a point where the people will revolt against the government because they have lost all their hopes in politicians. The NPP government under the leadership of Nana Addo is undoubtly the last hope of the Ghanaian people because in the words of Gabby the alternative is scary. Nana must not fail the people. The NPP should not do wrongs and defend them because they happened during a certain administration. It simply does not make sense,” he said.

We’ll reply your every insult in equal measure – Mahama Team to Bawumia

The campaign team of former President John Dramani Mahama has cautioned Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to refrain from insulting Mr Mahama because any such insult in the future would not go answered.

 “Let him also be reminded that respect for political office holders is earned and that if he chooses to play it dirty, he would get it back in equal measure, press down, shaken together and running over,” the John Mahama Campaign Team said in a statement.

The caution comes after Dr Bawumia again referred to Mr Mahama as “incompetent” at a meeting with Metropolitan and Municipal District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in Accra on Monday, 8 October 2018.

“I hear the incompetent one says he wants to come back, he wants to come and do more damage, as if he didn’t do enough damage; well we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, oh my God,” Dr Bawumia said.

In response, Mr Mahama’s campaign team said while Dr Bawumia is “busily majoring in minors and taking to cheap and unsophisticated politics, the manifesto promises of the New Patriotic Party for which Ghanaians voted for them have yet to be fulfilled.”

Below is the full statement:

BAWUMIA HAS BROUGHT THE OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT INTO DISREPUTE

The office of the vice – president was brought into disrepute in a viral video in which Dr Mahamudu Bawumia whilst pretending to be performing official duties descended to his lowest to call former president John Mahama names.

It is sad to note that after nearly half way through the four-year term of government of which Dr Bawumia is the vice president, he still lacks the presence of mind to appreciate the distinction between his role as vice president and that of his propagandist running mate days on campaign platforms.
Whilst reminding Dr Bawumia that any needless and unprovoked attack on former president Mahama on any day will not go answered we wish to remind him that the office of the vice president is conducted with grace decency and maturity not reckless and unrestrained talk.

Let him also be reminded that respect for political office holders is earned and that if he choses to play it dirty he would get it back in equal measure press down, shaken together and running over.

We wish to draw Dr Bawumia’s attention to the fact that whilst he is busily majoring in minors and taken to cheap and unsophisticated politics the manifesto promises of the New Patriotic Party for which Ghanaians voted for them have yet to be fulfilled.

The 1-District-1-Factory is in limbo, there is no sign of 1-Village-1-Dam, the 1-District-1-Warehouse promise has proven to be a sham, the $1million per constituency per year promise is in two years arrears for all 275 constituencies; the promise to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa has produced the most embarrassing spectacle of filth under Bawumia’s watch, the dollar and petroleum prices has spurred out of control, teacher training allowances have not been paid, allowances for student nurses are in arrears, one hot meal, free egg and a bar of chocolate a day for public primary school pupils have turned out to be a hoax; and the NPP government remains clueless about how to fulfill many other promises that it made.

It is shocking that vice president Bawumia who has become the butt of all jokes in the country for his inability to match his performance on the job and the management of the economy with his numerous propagandist lectures in opposition has the temerity to call former president John Dramani Mahama names.

ghana waves news


Former Central Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs says the former President of Ghana, Mr John Mahama has become a scarecrow to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr Allotey Jacobs said the former President is strategically running his campaign decorously and set to bring a super competent running mate to match the Vice-President, Dr Bawumia who he described as “super incompetent”.

Mr Allotey said he sees Mr Mahama’s comeback as causing fear within the NPP hence the strategy to attack him unnecessarily for no good reason.

Mr Jacobs who was speaking on Adom TV’s morning show, Badwam Tuesday asked the Veep to hold his breath because Mr Mahama was going to come with a running mate who he described as “super competent” to match his [Bawumia’s] incompetence.

Dr Bawumia had said in a video making the rounds that it will be suicidal for Ghanaians to hand over the administration of the country back to former President, John Dramani Mahama.

Dr Bawumia who was commenting on the former president’s decision to have another shot at the presidency said “I hear the incompetent one says he wants to come back, he wants to come and do more damage, as if he didn’t do enough damage; well we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, oh my God”.

But Mr Allotey Jacobs believes Dr Bawumia is only positioning himself to be the next president, hence his sudden attack on the former president.

This notwithstanding, Allotey Jacobs was certain that former President John Mahama will get 100 percent votes from the Central Region and emerge the presidential candidate for the NDC party.

“John Mahama will get 100 percent votes from my Region and win the primaries and I will support him to win, John Mahama is the best bet for the NDC to recapture political power in 2020”, he opined.

If you play dirty, you’ll get it in equal measure – Mahama fires at Bawumia

President John Mahama (right) says Vice President Bawumia (left) has become the butt of all jokes in the country.

The Office of John Mahama has resolved to respond in equal measure to any attack by Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, on the person of the former President. 

“Whilst reminding Dr Bawumia that any needless and unprovoked attack on former President Mahama on any day will not go unanswered, we wish to remind him that the Office of the Vice President is conducted with grace, decency and maturity, not reckless and unrestrained talk,” Mahama’s spokesperson, James Agyenim Boateng cautioned Tuesday.

The reaction followed comments the Vice President made Monday, about Mr. Mahama’s decision to lead the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), when he met Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives in Accra.

“I hear the incompetent one [Mahama] says he wants to come back, as if he didn’t do enough damage; well we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, oh my God,” Dr. Bawumia said. He also described Mahama’s decision to contest the flagbearer race of the NDC to become President again, as an attempt by him to do more damage to the Ghanaian economy.

“But you have to remember what happened at the time we came into office after many years of incompetent economic management; you cannot describe it any other than incompetent economic management. After many years of such economic management, the people of Ghana gave us the privilege to change course but after just twenty months in office, the difference is clear,” the Vice President added.

In a tone of annoyance, however, Mr. John Mahama’s office in a statement says they henceforth, play dirty with the Dr. Bawumia if he chooses to play dirty partially quoting the biblical verse in Luke 6:38 to suggest responding in “equal measure.”

“Let him also be reminded that respect for political office holders is earned and that if he chooses to play it dirty, he will get it back in equal measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.”

Mr Mahama and his government have a solid record of investment in education, energy, roads, healthcare and aviation infrastructure, among others and we can understand both the frustration and desperation of Dr Bawumia and his NPP following the rousing reception which has greeted Mr Mahama’s campaign tours in the regions.

We also wish to assure the public that nothing from Mr Mahama’s political opponents will stop him from taking the NDC to victory in the 2020 elections so that Ghanaians can be saved from the high cost of living, job losses and general economic hardship under the NPP administration.

Finally, we wish to point out that Dr Bawumia’s continuous silence on the suspension of the headmaster of Tempane Senior High School for allegedly allowing an NDC National Organiser hopeful to interact with students exposes the Vice President not only to ridicule but also solidifies his unenviable record as an unprincipled politician. This is because no one has visited senior high schools to dabble in partisan politics more than Dr Bawumia.

The Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says it will be suicidal for Ghanaians to hand over the administration of the country back to former President, John Dramani Mahama.

Dr Bawumia stated that twenty months into the Akufo-Addo administration, the difference is clear.

He continued: “But you have to remember what happened at the time we came into office after many years of incompetent economic management; you cannot describe it any other than incompetent economic management. After many years of such economic management, the people of Ghana gave us the privilege to change course but after just twenty months in office, the difference is clear.”

Mr Mahama, who is on a campaign tour of the country to reclaim the NDC ticket for the 2020 election, has accused the NPP of lying its way into power and failing to deliver on its promises.

He has, on some occasions, described the Akufo-Addo government as “super incompetent”.

Dr Bawumia announced plans by the government to embark on a massive infrastructural development across the country in 2019.

“We are going to be tackling major roads, bridges, interchanges and so on across the country. There is a major infrastructure project on the way and the whole of Ghana, by the grace of God, will feel it when it starts in 2019”, he said.

The conference was on the theme: “Re-Energising MMDCEs to Deliver on Government’s Agenda”. The topics treated included local government system, leadership and revenue mobilisation.

Dr Bawumia said the Sinohydro project would be implemented on a full-scale next year and indicated that the government would be spending almost $1.5 billion out of the $2 billion Sinohydro facility on the road sector.

He mentioned the Eastern Corridor Road as one of the projects that would be benefiting from the road project.

Salary arrears of 70,000 teachers cleared – Bawumia

ghana waves news


Government has cleared the salary arrears of 70,000 teachers since assuming office, the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said.

According to him, the Akufo-Addo-led administration inherited salary arrears owed some 100,000 teachers when they assumed office in January 2017.

“As we speak we have reduced that through the validation process to just 30,000 teachers so we are on course and should eliminate that soon,” the Vice President said Friday at the commemoration of the World Teacher’s Day at the Presbyterian Boys’ Senior High, Legon (Presec) in Accra.

Addressing the audience on the theme “The Right to Education Means Right to Qualified Teachers,” Dr Bawumia noted that the NPP government’s policy on teachers has increasingly sought to address the welfare of teachers and upgrade the standard of their training.

He stated that he has no doubt that the newly introduced teachers’ licensure exams “will raise the standard of the profession to be at par with others”.

“The aim of the licensure exams is to enable candidates acquire a professional license and prepare to meet the demands of the national teaching standard as well as the global standards of possessing the minimum knowledge, skills, values and attitude necessary to deliver effectively in schools,” he stated.

“No country can ensure quality education and ignore teachers,” he added.

He reiterated that government was committed to increasing the training standards of teachers which is why the government is upgrading the Colleges of Education to University Colleges.

That game-changing move will make a Bachelor’s Degree the minimum requirement to teach at the basic level in Ghana, the Vice President noted.

He also lauded the awards scheme for teachers, adding that “corporate bodies and individuals should donate to the course in recognising good work of teachers”.
