Even Dr Bawumia himself will disagree with you – Sammy Gyamfi writes to Kofi Bentil

Sammy Gyamfi and Kofi Bentil

Dear Kofi Bentil1,

I2 have just read your write-up calling on Ghanaians to give Bawumia a hearing ahead of his needless and useless lecture scheduled for 7th February.

For your information, Ghanaians gave Bawumia ample hearing in 2016 when he held countless lectures and fora to propound lofty but deceptive economic rhetoric.

During each of those lectures, Bawumia diagnosed the challenges of Ghana's economy and proceeded to discuss our problems rhetorically. Ghanaians were so much in awe of Bawumia's “charm” and “wizardry” that they trusted him to manage Ghana's economy.

Need I remind you that, as chairman of the Economic Management Team, Bawumia has supervised the total destruction of the economy? What is required of him now is ACTION, not lectures. This is trite, and you, of all people, should know that.

As for your claim that Bawumia has only been an advisor to the failed /Bawumia government, even President Akufo-Addo and Bawumia himself would disagree with you on that.

If that were so, why do you and other surrogates continue to give Bawumia credit for the initiative, the Drone delivery system, government's so-called digitalization initiatives, among others?

Can you tell us why President Akufo-Addo, in his 2018 , lauded Bawumia's “stellar leadership” of the Economic Management Team and credited him for what he described as positive economic results at the time?

If the logic of your argument is to be accepted, then on what basis did Bawumia, in opposition, pose 170 questions to then Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur?

What do you take Ghanaians for, Mr. Bentil? Some zombies?

It is a fact that your new boss Bawumia is responsible for the unprecedented economic mess Ghanaians are currently faced with. No amount of political subterfuge can change this fact.

Accept this truth and spare yourself the ordeal of trying to whitewash a failed and discredited economic messiah who has proven to be hopelessly empty and pathetically dishonest.

This agenda of yours is dead on arrival (“yaamutu”). Try another one, please.
