Dr Bawumia schools Mahama on what NPP loans were used for

Mahama and Bawumia

Ghana’s Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has replied former President and flagbearer of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama’s clams that the sitting government has nothing to show regardless of the excessive monies it has borrowed.

The Presidential candidate of the NDC  during his campaign tour in the country said that despite the monies borrowed by the ruling New Patriotic Party, they have nothing to show to the people of Ghana.

“In four years, the Akufo-Addo government has borrowed more than ¢140 billion, so the simple question Ghanaians should ask is, what have you done with the money? Where are the schools, the roads, electricity, water, the hospitals, and harbours?”, Mr Mahama queried during his tour of the Volta region.

He explained that between 2013 – 2016, his administration borrowed a little over ¢54 billion and the record is there for all to see in the area of roads, schools, healthcare infrastructure, electricity, water, harbours and airports, among others.

However, the Vice President, Dr Bawumia in a quick reply has laid what the monies borrowed by the NPP government were used for.

The Vice President indicated that the monies were not used to procure Guinnea Fowls like the NDC did and claimed it flew away to Burkina Faso.
