Mahama understands Ghana’s economy better than Bawumia – Victor Smith

A former Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK), Ambassador Victor Smith has rallied Ghanaians to have faith in former president John Mahama’s promises.

He said the former president who is seeking to be voted for in the upcoming elections in December has the wherewithal to return the country’s economy to the right path unlike what is being witnessed under the leadership of President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Mahamamudu Bawumia.

In an interview with Kwqame Minkah on Power FM’s Dwaboase programme Tuesday morning, Ambassador Smith touted Mr Mahama’s achievements in some sectors of the economy while comapring them to the current regime and argued that the NDC’s flag bearer understands the nuanes of Ghana’s fiscal space and its potentials that can inure to the benefit of Ghanaians.

According to ambassador Smith,  Dr Bawumia, the head of the country’s Economic Management Team, who is the flag bearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) cannot match the competencies of president Mahama.

“He [Bawumia] doesn’t have the experience to run a country like Ghana. Look, you [Bawumia] presided 8 years over such rot, how can we give power to you?” he quizzed.

Mr Smith said John Mahama has had a first hand experience as a President and understands the needs of Ghanaians, urging Ghanaians to vote for him to put his experience into fixing the mess being created by Akufo-Addo and his appointees.

His reaction comes on the back of severe economi hardship fuelled by depreceiation of the country’s currency and inflation which have sparked agitations among various labour unions.
