According to him, Dr. Bawumia has consistently peddled falsehood about the state of the economy after several failed attempt by government to meet its target despite claiming to have the solution to the country’s ailing economy.

“Our economy is in tatters and instead of the NPP government fixing it, they are only lying to us about the state of the economy led by Bawumia or better still call him ‘Bawu-liar’. They are mismanaging the economy. They have no idea of how to lead this country, ” he said on Adom TV’s Morning Show “Badwam” Friday.

Mr. Amoah-Ashyia’s continuous tagging of the Vice President as a liar did not go down well with Mr. Owusu-Bempah who asked the former to retract the comments.

But before Amoah-Ashyiah could say jack, Owusu Bempah described him as being high on Indian Hemp and tramadol.

“How can you describe the Vice President as Bawu-liar? I don’t even understand why the NDC would bring persons of your calibre on live TV to make useless comments. I think you smoke weed or better still you are on tramol. I suspect that is what’s making you talk trash,” he said angrily.

The two gentlemen continued attacking each other despite several interventions from the host, Omanhene Kwabena Asante.

Producers of the live show were forced to take off the show to end the program after the continuous exchanges between the two.
