Bawumia to deliver lecture on Ghana’s economy today
The running mate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia will deliver a lecture on the state of Ghana’s economy today.
Dr. Bawumia, who once served as a Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana is expected to paint exactly what he believes is the true picture of the country’s economy. He has delivered such lectures in the past and this is expected to be his final lecture ahead of the December polls.
Organized on the theme: “The State of the Ghanaian Economy – A Foundation of Concrete or Straw,” is expected to attract ordinary Ghanaians and party faithfuls with the former President John Agyekum Kufuor as the chairman.
The NPP were compelled to change the venue for the event after the Accra International Conference Centre reportedly denied them access to the facility.
“The change in venue follows a decision by the managers of the Conference Centre (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) to deny organizers of the programme the use of the facility – 24 hours to the Public Lecture, despite earlier assurances and two days (last week Wednesday and this Monday 5th September) of technical meetings and arrangements between the organizers and technical men at the Centre, which concluded on among others, the Technical set-up for the event,” a statement signed by Bawumia’s press secretary, Kwabena Boadu explained.
The statement further assured that all is set for today’s lecture.
