Alex Segbefia, former Health Minister under the erstwhile John Mahama administration has said that “The biggest problem Bawumia has now is credibility”.
According to the now Deputy Campaign Manager for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), certain pronouncements in terms of promises by Dr. Bawumia whilst in opposition which stands unfulfilled gives grounds for him not to be trusted.
His comments were based on claims by the NPP government that they won’t borrow when voted for.
“He [Bawumia] said that the Mahama government was borrowing too much and as a former Deputy Governor he knows the money is here and the NPP government will not need to borrow because the money is here and yet this government has borrowed more money than any government.”
Dr, Segbfia believes that was “the most irresponsible statement for him [Bawumia] to make professionally and on the political front” because of the rate of borrowing under the Akufo-Addo administration.
“After all that he said, look at how they are borrowing. How do I say anything he says now is credible? As far as I am concerned, even in his own field, he has lost credibility.
