The Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini, has strongly criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for attempting to dissociate his Vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, from the current economic crisis.

He further asserted, “Suddenly, because things are bad, the President now says that he’s responsible. But even in that same breath, he says that when it comes to digitalization, he’s responsible [Bawumia]. It’s an irony, what a bizarre attempt to repackage and sell a very bad product to the people of

“Why is there the need to distance him now from this very bad economic record, when you told us that under the economy wizard’s leadership that is why you were doing well.”
