“Today, John Mahama is going around the country and he is speaking to people as if he has never been President before. When we were suffering under his Presidency, he told us he was a dead goat. A dead goat who had no feelings. Today he wants to resurrect and become a live goat” Dr Bawumia stated.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, claims that former president John Mahama has been speaking to Ghanaians as though he had never served as the country’s president before.

Dr. Bawumia stated that, between himself and Mahama, one has been president before and one has not, but the one who has been president before is speaking as though he has never been president before in an address on Monday, Nov. 20, 2023, in Nalerigu, in the North East Region, after he called on the Overlord of Mamprugu following his election as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flag bearer.

“Between the two of us, only one of us has been President before. That is John Mahama. He was President before. I have only been Vice President. I have not been President before but by the grace of God, you’ll make me President in 2025, in shaa Allah,” Dr. Bawumia said.

Dr. Bawumia continued, “Mahama has surfaced and is pretending to have a magic wand after he failed to provide solutions to many societal problems as President.”

“Suddenly he has all the solutions to our problems. But when he was President, what solutions did he bring to Ghana? Did he solve the unemployment program? Did he create jobs? Did he tackle corruption? Did he issue Ghana cards? Did he build astro turfs? Did he abolish the three months pay policy for teachers? Did he establish Free SHS? He had no solutions to our problems.”

Dr. Bawumia added that even though he is yet to become President, he has proposed and spearheaded programs that have positively impacted the country.

“I have not yet become President but I, as a Vice President, have brought solutions to many of our problems,” he said.

“We did not have a unique identity, so I championed the government’s policy for the Ghana card. Today we have 17 million people issued with the Ghana card. Today, because of my proposal, we have no guarantor for student loans if you have a Ghana card. Today Ghana has a digital property address system because we had a problem of no functional address.”

He continued: “Before you could not transfer money between one teleco to another. But today, because of mobile money interoperability, you can transfer money Vodafone to MTN, to Airtel Tigo. Before, you could not transfer money between a bank account and a mobile account. Today you can do that. Today, you can renew the National Health Insurance on your mobile phone.”

“Today, you can sit at home and buy electricity credit on your mobile phone. Today we have brought Zipline drones and they are delivering medicines to 2700 hospitals and clinics across the country.”

“Today, we have one constituency, one ambulance. And another idea I brought is Agenda 111. We are building hospitals in districts without hospitals. Other ideas I brought are Zongo Development Fund and Gold for Oil policy. Today you can acquire a driver’s license and passport online. Today you can file your taxes online.”

Dr. Bawumia called for a comparison between himself and Mahama for a determination of who has the best ideas to transform the country.

“We have brought ideas to the table. Ideas are what transform a nation. And you can see as Vice President, what ideas I have brought to the table.”

“What ideas did John Mahama bring? Can you remember one idea John Mahama brought? Just one! Can you remember?

John Dramani Mahama, the former president, has expanded on his plan to create a 24-hour economy in order to create jobs and stimulate economic growth in the event that he wins the general elections in 2024.

Speaking on November 18, 2023, during the Sunyani Catholic Diocese’s 50th anniversary, Mahama stressed that, despite the dire state of the economy, there is still hope.

Although the finance minister Ken Ofori-Atta’s usage of the night economy was limited to the tourism environment, he pointed out that it was an indication that his concept for a 24-hour economy was beginning to take hold.

He emphasized that the concept is dependent on security and stable power and that participation will be optional rather than mandatory.

It was suggested by him that special meters will provide ‘time of use’ pricing after peak hours between 10 and 6 am to support various economic sectors in operating three shifts, or around the clock.

Mahama enumerated a variety of sectors that he believed would profit, including manufacturing, rubbish collection, filling stations, hospitality facilities, mining and extraction, and agro-processing.

“This 24-hour economy I propose will be voluntary, it will not be imposed. Businesses will be encouraged to sign up with tax incentives provided for them and enhanced security and lower electricity tariffs,” he told the congregation.
