Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia - Hon. Vice President of Ghana.
 The Office of the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia described a comment by the Deputy Minority Speaker, Hon James Klutse Avedzi on the Vice President’s stance on borrowing as  “deliberately fabricate statements in an attempt to attack your political opponent is an exercise in desperation and intellectual dishonesty”.







A report by Accra-based Citi FM quoting Hon James Klutse Avedzi as saying “The Vice President… while he was the running mate for the NPP was emphatic on the issue about borrowing in Ghana saying that the country need not borrow and that we have the resources here in Ghana and that when they win power they will not borrow”.

But the statement from the office of the Vice President said “The Office of the Vice President would like to state for the record that the above statement attributed to the Vice-President by the deputy minority leader (and subsequently by many NDC communicators) is a complete and utter fabrication. The Vice President’s speeches, lectures and statements on the economy over the years are a matter of public record”.

The Office of the Vice President’s attention has been drawn to a statement (on Citi FM on August 16, 2017) attributed to the Deputy Minority Leader, Hon James Klutse Avedzi, accusing the Vice President of doing a U-turn on the issue of borrowing by government. Specifically the deputy minority leader is reported to have stated that:
“The Vice President… while he was the running mate for the NPP was emphatic on the issue about borrowing in Ghana saying that the country need not borrow and that we have the resources here in Ghana and that when they win power they will not borrow”.

The Office of the Vice President would like to state for the record that the above statement attributed to the Vice-President by the deputy minority leader (and subsequently by many NDC communicators) is a complete and utter fabrication. The Vice President’s speeches, lectures and statements on the economy over the years are a matter of public record.

We are therefore challenging the deputy minority leader (and the other NDC communicators) to immediately provide the evidence to back up their claim. They cannot provide any such evidence because the Vice-President has never made such a statement.

To deliberately fabricate statements in an attempt to attack your political opponent is an exercise in desperation and intellectual dishonesty. As politicians, it is important that we elevate the discourse and argue based on facts and not on fabrications and outright lies.

Our advice to them is to go back and take the time to READ the Vice President’s lectures as well as speeches and try to criticize based on the statements contained therein. Ghana deserves much better.
