The wife of the Vice President of Ghana, Samira Bawumia has been slammed by Madam Cecilia Asaga, a Zongo Caucus patron of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to stop ridiculing the plight of Ghanaians by insisting all is well when in reality everything is deteriorating at a fast rate.
The Second Lady has come under intense criticism after she reportedly said President Akufo-Addo has touched every constituency with development. The hubbub created from her statement attracted the attention of Madam Cecilia has come to criticize her severely with a touch of counseling.
According to her, Ghanaians are suffering from intolerable hardships and an ever-increasing cost of living, which is quite unfortunate.
In addition, an increase in existing taxes, as well as the introduction of new ones, has resulted in dramatic increases in the prices of petrol, food, and other essentials.
“On this day, as hardships deepen, I implore His Excellency President Nana Akufo-Addo to extend a hand of collaboration to all Ghanaians who can help save our beloved country from the abyss into which it is sinking,” she stated in an interview with Avenor TV.
She continued, “I salute Ghanaians in need, and I would want to take this occasion to ask Madam Samira Bawumia to assist her husband in taking the necessary steps to provide aid in fixing the Ghanaian porous economy than insulting and attacking Ghanaians complaining about the bad nature of the economy.
“Although it appears that Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia’s lies have decreased marginally because of his hidden stature due to the implementation of the obnoxious E-levy, it is conceivable that his wife, Samira, has acquired the same ailment.
“One cannot imagine under what influence should Samaira Bawumia be to declare that the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia administration’s accomplishments are strewn around the country.
“Indeed, I do not receive or share the poor taxpayers’ money to go throughout the country as she claims, but I am confident that those with good eyesight can only see agony, hardship, frustration, crime, corruption, starvation, unemployment, and so on all over the country.”
