I write to express my profound letdown to the communiqué issued by Ex President John Dramani Mahama to ridiculously attack the personality of the vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. As a matter of fact, the Vice President is not silent neither is he asleep in his work but it will only take propagandist to overlook what the world is facing.

Mr. Mahama should note that the challenges of the Economy is not only in Ghana but the whole world which is compounded by Covid-19 and Russia-Ukraine war. As a matter of fact, the expertise in the management of every economy will be benchmarked against but one's standard; the ability to improve the impact on your people. 

Mr. President, evidence shows that even in UK an average household income is expected to fall further. Prices will rise than expected until the end of 2025. The CEBR predicts that inflation will now peak at 8.7% next quarter which will stay twice as high as expected until the second half of 2023. This simply means an item that cost $50 a year will cost almost $55 in the next few months"

I am therefore not surprised about the satiric comment of Mr. Mahama because even under his government as Vice President, he was sidelined to be part of the Economic Management Team because the late Ex President Atta Mills did not trusted his sixth form Economic analysis.

Mr. President, let's remember the performance of the Ghana Cedi against the USD from 2012 till date compiled by BoG. In 2012 it started with 1.5841 and ended with 1.8846 with percentage decline of 18.97%, 2013(1.8846-2.1616)14.70%, 2014(2.1616-3.2001)48.04%, 2015(3.2001-3.7950)18.59%, 2016(3.7950-4.2002)10.65%, 2017(4.2002-4.4107)5/13%, 2018(4.4157-4.8200)9.16%, 2019(4.8200-5.5337)14.81%, 2020(5.5337-5.7602)4.09%, 2021(5.7602-6.0061)4.27% and 2022(6.0061-7.1125)18.42%. 

From the above analysis, inflation was at single digit for the period of 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021 together with positive trade balances. Debt burden increased from the period of 2019 when Covid-19 hit the nation which made President Akufo-Addo to justifiably say "We cannot bring back the lives of the people but can bring back the economy" Rightly so, the need to invest and protect lives. We can only measure the performance of this government to the same government pre-Covid-19 performance like the NDC incompetent administration led by you (Mahama). In the midst of Covid-19, Ghana performed better in terms of macroeconomic benchmarks of development than most countries in the world.

However, it is a clear attempt that Mr. Mahama is trying to tincture his incompetency in this matter to make a way for Ghanaians to discuss. It is a diabolic attempt that he(Mahama) wanted to drag this worldly crisis to ridicule Ghanaians. This is as a result of his desperate for power. Ghanaians are disappointed in Ex President Mahama on this ridiculous comment full of propaganda, malaise and fabrications. 

I therefore entreat Ghanaians to disregard the comments of Ex President Mahama as "Sixth form analogy and power desperate".
