Member of the Parliament(MP) for Assin Central Constituency Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has given hints that Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is given less priority because of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.
Speaking to party members in Bolgatanga as part of his campaign to be elected flagbearer of the NPP, Kennedy Agyapong lamented the loss of some $12 million as a result of the depreciation of the Ghanaian currency.
“From March this year to August this year, through exchange rate, I have lost $12 million. So today I don’t even count it,” he said to delegates.
The vociferous lawmaker insisted that he would never allow himself to be bullied by a finance minister if he was Vice President.
“If I’m a vice president, how can a finance minister bully me?” He questioned.
This outburst has been described by political watchers as grapevine information that points to a worrying situation where it is believed that Ken Ofori Atta as Finance Minister is given priority over the Vice President in decision economic decisions making.
