The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has slammed the Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for doing politics on Easter Monday.
Dr Mahamadu Bawumia on Monday highlighted 103 achievements under President Nana Akufo-Addo to mark the 100th day of his presidency.
He made this known at a Town Hall meeting at the new court complex in Accra organised by Accra-based Joy FM.
But in his response to some of the issues raised, the Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidoho argued that it was wrong for Bawumia to choose a day after Jesus Christ’s resurrection to talk politics.
He told Accra-based TV3 that Dr Bawumia should have at least waited until the next day, which is a working day, to do his politics.
Meanwhile, the vice president at the Town Hall meeting described his boss, Nana Akufo-Addo as a “workaholic president” who has achieved a lot in his 100 days in office.
He said the Akufo-Addo government inherited a difficult economic situation “where the finances of government were in a very bad shape.”
He added that the government had made specific “promises to reduce taxes, restore nursing training allowance, one district, one factory, one village one dam and one million dollars for each constituency.”
“And at the same time we said that we were going to bring down the deficit and increase government revenue,” he said.
But Koku Anyidoho rubbished the 100-day performance of the government. He argued that the period was used to nurture terrorists and fund vigilante groups like the Delta Force and the Invincible Forces.
