Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has downplayed the assertion by a section of the public that former President and Flagbearer of the NDC party, John Mahama is a nice man.
According to him, the Presidency is not for nice men or women but competent people who can turn things around.
Addressing a rally after a health walk in Tamale as part of activities marking the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) Youth Conference, Dr. Bawumia said even though Mr. Mahama is a nice man he’s incompetent and will mismanage the economy if he’s given another chance to govern the country.
“People say that John Mahama is a nice man, oh yes he may be a nice man. But he’s a nice man who you give the economy and very soon you cannot get Teacher Training allowance, you cannot get Nursing Training allowance, you cannot pay children’s school fees, you cannot get a job to do, electricity prices will be going up. Is this the sort of nice man that we want? You may be a nice man but he’s an incompetent nice man.”
