The Ajumako Enyan Essiam MP, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson has asked Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to bring decency to the Vice President’s office.
According to him, Dr Bawumia has not been honest with Ghanaians since his government came to power in 2017.
The Ranking Member of Parliament’s Finance Committee’s latest advice is on the back Dr Bawumia’s promise of giving each senior high school student electronic tablets.
Dr Bawumia said “this game-changing development” is aimed at equipping the students with the relevant materials for their studies.
Speaking at this year’s New Year School at the University of Ghana, Legon on Tuesday, January 17, Dr Bawumia said the move forms part of government’s digitisation agenda.
“This year, we are on course to provide all Senior High School students in Ghana with tablets which are loaded with textbooks on them for their studies.
That’s a very game-changing development. We will have past questions preloaded on these tablets that will be distributed,” the Vice President said.
But in a Twitter post on Thursday, January 19, the lawmaker said the Vice President should spare Ghanaians his “lies.”
He added that Dr Bawumia is to be blamed for the current economic hardship the country is facing.
“@MBawumia your frivolous promises are largely responsible for Gh’s bankruptcy! Basic schs in the North East Region don’t have tables & chairs yet you are promising 1 student 1 tablet! How will you fund this? Borrow more ? Where lies your priorities Mr. Veep?.”
