Reacting to vice-president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia‘s public lecture on Thursday, Duffuor said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are better managers of the economy than the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“We made it possible and we will do it again because we know how to do it,” the presidential hopeful of the NDC said at the launch of his grassroots party empowerment and self-financing project dubbed the “Ahot)” Project in Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region.
“I hear some people are talking somewhere on the economy…, whatever they do or say what we achieved under Professor Mills they cannot do it because they just don’t know how to do it. For almost two years Ghana was adjudged the best managed economy globally under professor Mills,” Duffuor said.
We’ll weather the storm – Bawumia
Meanwhile, Bawumia, has said he is highly optimistic that Ghana’s economy will rebound faster than expected as a result of the smart policies the government has rolled out to bolster the economy.
“With sound policies to enhance growth, fiscal and monetary discipline and by the Grace of God, we are bouncing back better and stronger,” Dr Bawumia said at the national TESCON conference on Thursday (7 April) in Kasoa.
“Our government has achieved a lot and as a country we have come a long way,” the vice-president said.
Bawumia, however, urged Ghanaians to appreciate the government’s accomplishments, big and small, rather than trying to tarnish or diminish them for political purposes.
“It is important to note that this global crisis would have hit us irrespective of which government is in office. However, how well we come out of it depends on which government is in office, its track record of delivery… I look forward to all of you doing your part in making our nation great and strong. We are on the right path,” he said.
