This, the Vice President believes, makes the current government stand out when it comes to achievements, as compared to previous administrations.

“He has done so much in 18 months that many other governments were not able to do in 8 years,” Dr. Bawumia said during Saturday’s visit to the Muslim community in the Upper East Region to commemorate the month of Ramada.

“The President assumed office with a very difficult economy. He has been at work for the past 18 months now. By the grace of the Almighty God, he has been able to do a lot of things he promised this country he was going to do.”
