A Political Marketing Analyst, Dr Bernard Tutu Boahen, has said he sees nothing wrong with Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia trying to create his own narrative from that of the Akufo-Addo government.
He said Dr Bawumia needed to adopt his strategy for the elections and defend it accordingly.
His comments come at a time when Dr Bawumia has appealed to Ghanaians to move him from a driver’s mate to a driver.
the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) said that the EMT does not have decision-making powers.
Dr Bawumia said they only advise the cabinet. As head of the EMT, he had been blamed for the economic challenges that Ghana is facing.
Delivering his address at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) on Wednesday, February 7, Dr Bawumia said “Thankfully, I was appointed as chair of the EMT, as a sub-committee to Cabinet we do not have decision-making powers but I am very proud of the quality of advice we have been providing over the years to Cabinet.
“As vice president, I was asked by the president to assist in solving the problems that were inhibiting the economy. my approach was to help formalize the economy through digitalization as stated in our 2016 manifesto.”
Speaking on the mid-day news with Beatrice Adu on Friday February 9, Dr Tutu Boahen said “At this stage that Dr Bawumia finds himself in he must also defend his campaign and put his campaign within the context that people expect him to be running his campaign.
“It is what people expect of him that will actually tell his campaign engine moving forward and so for me, he has done the needful, people may call it a betrayal but I may not see it as a betrayal, for me, it is what works and it is going to work for him.”
