President John Mahama’s mantra of massive infrastructure investment is nothing more than a hoax, a ploy to hoodwink Ghanaians into retaining him in office Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said.
Likening the president to a mason who inherits a good foundation but destroys it, the New Patriotic Party Vice presidential candidate said president John Mahama cannot be trusted to build a house.
He said contrary to the president’s claim that a solid foundation has been laid in his first tenure and must be given another opportunity to complete his job, the president has rather replaced the solid foundation he inherited from Kufuor with a “weak foundation of straw”.
“If you allow Mahama another four year term he will tell you he has laid a foundation for takeoff. How many foundations are needed for this building to be built?” Bawumia mocked the president much to the delight of a partisan NPP crowd who converged at the National Theater for a lecture on the Economy, Thursday.
