Dr. Bawumia have over the years bemoaned the poor administration of President John Dramani Mahama.According to Dr. Bawumia, the current government lacks the fiscal discipline to revamp the economy.
Speaking to party supporters during his Greater Accra tour, President Mahama said "I hear Bawumia say I'm incompetent yet he's never come close to what being a president is."
Dr. Bawumia has recently punctured holes in the 2016 budget, saying it failed to address the basic challenges of the citizenry.
Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM, Dr. Bawumia said “How does this budget address unemployment, the youth unemployment and you look at the resources this government has had over the last seven years, phenomenal amount. Taxes, loans and oil alone; 200 billion Ghana cedis.”“When the Kufuor administration was there, with such meagre resources, so much can be pointed to as well. Social interventions, free maternal health and so on. You can point to infrastructure but the IMF Managing Director put the nail on the head when he said that the borrowing done by the government has been used for consumption and not for investment,” he added.Dr Bawumia revealed that the NPP will soon organise a press conference to offer their alternatives for the country in 2016.
