Veteran journalist Kweku Baako has described as "apt" the response of Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to former President John Mahama, after the later called the Ghana Post GPS app as "419" (fraud).

Bawumia in response asked the former president to refrain from propaganda saying,  Mahama, while in office, engaged in propaganda which did not inure to his benefit and so wondered why he would still be wallowing in it while in opposition.

Addressing the National Democratic Congress(NDC) Unity walk in Cape Coast in the Central Region last week Sunday, Mahama said new governments, all over the world, are often given honeymoon periods to roll out their policies.

However, he said the Akufo-Addo administration is committing so many mistakes and that the President is not acting boldly to correct them.

One of such mistakes, the ex-president said, is the launch of the Ghana Post GPS App.

"How can you launch a Google GPS system that is freely available on our mobile phones and say it is a national addressing system," he quizzed, adding: "It is such a pity. Why do you embarrass the President so much?

"You go and bring a whole president to launch a system that is essentially a 419," he noted.

Responding to comments by Mahama, Dr Bawumia said: "We know a 419 scam when we see one and that, unfortunately, was the hallmark of the administration of former president Mahama.

"Ghanaians will find out more soon as people are held legally accountable. With the record that former president Mahama has in the area of governance, it is incredible that he would have the effrontery to talk about '419 scams'...I should note that propaganda did not help former President Mahama when he was in government and it is certainly not going to help him in opposition.

"We welcome constructive criticism but before you criticise, please take your time to make sure you know what you are talking about otherwise you would be sadly exposed as being ignorant of simple facts as in this case."

Commenting on the banter between Mahama and Bawumia, Mr Baako said: “Bawumia's reaction was apt and proper and I don’t believe being abusive is part of his traits”, he doesn’t go around insulting people."
