Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom’s single-room banks littered across the country do not qualify him as ‘adwumawura’ – creator of jobs, as he has been touting himself to be, flag bearer of the opposition All People’s Party (APC), Mr Hassan Ayariga has said.
At an event to introduce his running mate on Saturday, 24 September, Mr Ayariga mocked at the flag bearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) who is also the president of Group Nduom, owners of GN Bank and several other businesses across the country.
“[The] PPP flag bearer is going round shouting ‘adwumawura’. You think your single-room banks make you adwumawura? … If that is what you think, then the APC has more offices than adwumawura, including his campaign offices. The APC has more than 200 offices,” Mr Ayariga said.
The APC leader also lunged at the flag bearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, describing his ‘one-district, one-factory’ promise among other promises as a “joke.”
“Ghana has been reduced to ‘one-factory, one-district’, ‘one-dam, one-village’, ‘one-million, one-constituency’; I mean what kind of joke is this? How much is a million dollars going to do in a district (sic)? A million dollars is worth buying a car and you come and tell me that they should give you power and you’ll give [every district] one million dollars.
That is the joke of the century. Nana Addo does not have the capacity to manage this country; Nana Addo is not the best man to manage this country,” Mr Ayariga said.
