Vice president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has been made a laughing stock, following the continuous depreciation of the cedi.
This follows his claim that the Akufo-Addo led government will, in 100 days, arrest the cedi.
Dr Bawumia addressing participants at 100 days Town Hall meeting in April 2017 said: “We have arrested the cedi from running“.
So far, the depreciation of the local currency is the highest value drop since President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo took office in 2017.
And, speaking on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Wednesday, Bernard Anim Piesie wondered why the cedi which is has been arrested and put under lock and key is still depreciating in value.
“Did the cedi break jail or the IGP received a bribe to let it escape because Dr Bawumia said he had arrested it,” he mocked.
The NDC man stated that the economic fundamentals under the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are more than weak to be resuscitated.
“Arresting the cedi is not by word of mouth; it is the prudent measures put in place by the government so Dr Bawumia must stop talking,” Piesie added.
