Focus on your campaign and stop banter with opponents – Franklin to Bawumia

IMANI Africa’s founder and president, Franklin Cudjoe, has counseled Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the leader of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), not to waste his time teasing his rivals in politics.

He feels that the 2024 elections would be very important, and that Dr. Bawumia should stick to his platform and not stray from his goal of becoming the nation’s first gentleman.

He detailed Dr. Bawumia’s attempts to downplay Mahama’s projected 24-hour economy as superfluous.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, suggested that the incoming NDC administration operate a 24-hour economy. Dr. Bawumia asserted that the latter is ignorant of his concept, despite the fact that he thinks this theory currently governs various parts of the economy.

Though the brief discussion stemmed from his blue-economy notion, Mr. Cudjoe noted that Dr. Bawumia advocated a similar idea of restructuring the economy during an interview on Citi TV’s news analysis program The Big Issue.

“Messaging is key in an election year; the 24-hour economy has taken centre stage in our discussions. Not that it has not been there before; the blue economy has been there. The green economy, which we have bastardized and destroyed, is also there. Dr. Bawumia spoke about the blue economy; why is nobody discussing it? Is it because nobody knew what the blue economy is? That’s optimizing resources.”

He emphasized, “Bawumia probably missed an opportunity to be discussing the optimization of some of these blue economy issues. Rather than respond to John Mahama in the way he did, essentially saying that we should forget about it, be on your own messages. How do we turn the economy? And I think that is what Dr. Bawumia’s camp should be focusing on right now; they shouldn’t be distracted.”

Franklin Cudjoe observed that the conversation seemed to be shifting away from the Vice President, cautioning him to tread cautiously on his campaign journey.

“He should tell us how he will turn the economy around. It looks like the conversation is moving away from Dr. Bawumia, and he should be careful.” Franklin Cudjoe opined.

The President of IMANI Africa charged Mr. Mahama and Dr. Bawumia to walk the talk if any of them wins the 2024 elections, stressing that the country doesn’t need mere slogans.

He underscored the need for proper measures to be put in place to change the fortunes of the country.

“It’s an admission that the current decadence that we witness in the economy will take much more than a single bullet economy miracle to turn our fortunes around. The debt levels are astonishingly high; we are still attracting debt. Other economic indicators are not really favouring us; inflation is still in double digits.
