His response comes on the back of Mr. Bawumia's comment during a talk to supporters in Kwahu after a health walk on Saturday morning, claiming that the Nana Addo-led administration has created 2.1 million jobs since assuming office in 2017 than the opposition NDC did.

Veep Bawumia's comment triggered a reaction from Communications officer Sammy Gyamfi who calls him out as a liar.

"Bawumia will occupy a comfortable place in the Guinness Book of Records of Lies," he said

"Official rate of unemployment has almost doubled from 8.4% in 2016 to 14% as of 2021, according to the GSS. Youth unemployment is at an all-time high. Massive job losses have become the order of the day due to the economic mismanagement of the Bawumia-led EMT. Yet, our unrepentant liar of a VEEP claims his government has created 2.1 million jobs. What a joke! The name BAWUMIA will occupy a comfortable place in the Guinness Book of Lies".

However, many reactions have been triggered by a section of Ghanaian youths, describing Veep's comment as lies.

President Akufo Addo and Dr. Bawumia and other high-profile dignitaries are in the region expected to grace some functions on the Kwahu Ridge.
