Felix Kwakye Ofosu

A former Deputy Communications Minister under the erstwhile John Mahama administration has described Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s Kumasi Town Hall meeting as a statistical galamsey.

According to Felix Ofosu Kwakye, the Vice President only came to play and misuse data in his presentation on the promises delivered by the Akufo-Addo-led government.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, the former Deputy Minister said the figures presented by Dr Bawumia were bizarre claims.


“The analysis is ridiculous and not logical because the New Patriotic Party government has performed abysmally. Record of borrowing under what the Vice President presented at the Town Hall meeting can best be described as statistical galamsey,” he said.

He added that he would take the words of Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta on the economy more serious than he would with Dr Bawumia.

“The Finance Minister is now very authoritative on the economic management than Bawumia who always gets away with misuse of data to deceive people.

 “There is no excitement in his speeches anymore; Ghanaians do not take him serious again because he is delivering nothing,” he added.
