The former President , John Dramani Mahama is calling for the removal of the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, as the Chairman of the Economic Management Team.

According to him, the state of the country’s economy requires that he steps aside, for someone with fresh ideas to be employed.

The 2020 flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC),  Mr. Manama said this during a presentation by the NDC dubbed ‘Ghana at a crossroad’ in Accra on Monday.

He believes that the economic management team under the leadership of Dr. Bawumia has led the country to its worst international credit rating downgrade, diminished confidence in the local economy and resulted in the poor performance of the cedi on the international market, among other things.

As if that was not enough, he further asked that the entire membership of the economic management team must be dissolved.

“The economic management team has failed and must be reconstituted immediately with fresh ideas and perspectives having supervised the worst public debt build-up, worst budget deficit, worst debt to GDP ratio, worst credit rating downgrade, worst-performing currency in the world, worst crisis of confidence in the economy… The current head of the economic management team [Dr. Bawumia] has clearly fallen from his ivory tower as a self-styled economic messiah to a poster boy for economic mismanagement and his leadership of the economic management team is no longer tenable,” Mahama said.

 

He also called on President Akufo-Addo to relieve the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta of his job since he believes that he has failed to act in the national interest and rather seeks his personal interest.

According to him, Mr. Ofori-Atta has not lived up to expectations in the management of Ghana’s economy.

He said the current state of the economy must be blamed directly on the Finance Minister as well as the Vice President and the economic management.

“Those directly responsible for the economic crisis must bear responsibility, and it is inconceivable that the Minister of Finance [Ken Ofori-Atta] remains at post. Having presided over the worst economic meltdown in Ghana’s recent history, the president must, as a matter of urgency and without further delay relieve the Minister of Finance of his position,” he said.
