Sammy Gyamfi criticises Kofi Bentil for asking Ghanaians to give Bawumia a chance

The National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, criticised Kofi Bentil for urging Ghanaians to consider giving the New Patriotic Party flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, a chance in the December elections.

Mr. Gyamfi expressed disapproval of such a call coming from Kofi Bentil at this point.

In a write-up, Gyamfi argued that Ghanaians had already given Dr. Bawumia ample hearing in 2016 during his numerous lectures and forums.

Sammy Gyamfi emphasised that the Vice President, as the chairman of the Economic Management Team, should be taking concrete actions to revive the economy rather than engaging in lectures.

Despite this, Gyamfi asserted that Dr. Bawumia has failed significantly and cannot be trusted with the highest office in the land to govern the country.

“For your information, Ghanaians gave Bawumia ample hearing in 2016 when he held countless lectures and fora to propound lofty but deceptive economic rhetoric.”

“At each of those lectures, Bawumia diagnosed the challenges of Ghana’s economy and proceeded to fix our problems rhetorically. Ghanaians were so much in awe of Bawumia’s “charm” and “wizardry” that they trusted him to manage Ghana’s economy. Need I remind you, that at a time when Bawumia as chairman of the Economic Management Team, has supervised the total destruction of the economy, what is required of him, is ACTION and not lectures? This is trite and you of all people should know that.”

In a write-up on Facebook on Sunday, February 4, Mr Bentil called on Ghanaians to attentively listen to the NPP flagbearer during his scheduled public lecture on February 7.

Bentil emphasised that Dr. Bawumia, having never been president before, deserves an opportunity, akin to the chance given to John Mahama in 2012.https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.

He expressed confidence in Dr Bawumia’s potential as a good president, urging Ghanaians to consider voting for him in the upcoming December elections.

“We gave Prez Mahama a chance to be President, the least we can do is give Dr Bawumia a fair and objective hearing. He is not President, and has never been President! I have no doubt he will be better!”

But Sammy Gyamfi will have none of Mr Bentil’s admonition.

Below is Sammy Gyamfi’s full write-up

Dear Kofi Bentil,

I just read your write-up calling on Ghanaians to give Bawumia a hearing, ahead of his needless and useless lecture, scheduled for 7th February.

For your information, Ghanaians gave Bawumia ample hearing in 2016, when he held countless lectures and fora, to propound lofty but deceptive economic rhetorics.

At each of those lectures, Bawumia diagnosed the challenges of Ghana’s economy and proceeded to fix our problems rhetorically. Ghanaians were so much in awe of Bawumia’s “charm” and “wizardry” that they trusted him to manage Ghana’s economy.

Need I remind you, that at a time when Bawumia as chairman of the Economic Management Team, has supervised the total destruction of the economy, what is required of him, is ACTION and not lectures? This is trite and you of all people should know that.

As for your claim that Bawumia has only been an advisor to the failed Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government, even President Akufo-Addo and Bawumia himself will disagree with you on that.

If that were so, why do you and other NPP surrogates continue to give Bawumia credit for the Agenda 111 initiative, the Drone delivery system, government’s so-called digitalization initiatives, among others?

Can you tell us why President Akufo-Addo in his 2018 SONA, lauded Bawumia’s “stellar leadership” of the Economic Management Team, and credited him for what he described as positive economic results at the time?

If the logic of your argument is to be accepted, then on what basis did Bawumia in opposition, pose 170 questions to then Vice President, Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur?

What do you take Ghanaians for Mr. Bentil? Some zombies?

It is a fact that your new Boss Bawumia, is responsible for the unprecedented economic mess Ghanaians are currently faced with. No amount of political subterfuge can change this fact.

Accept this truth and spare yourself the ordeal of trying to whitewash a failed and discredited economic messiah, who has proven to be hopelessly empty and pathetically dishonest.

This agenda of yours is dead on arrival (“yaamutu”), try another one please.
