Energy Minister Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh has asked the general public to disregard a video that made the rounds on social media with the malicious caption “Bawumia’s Running Mate says Bawumia is useless.”

According to him, the said interview was conducted in February 2014 in reaction to the State of the Nation’s address when the President, John Dramani Mahama, blamed the country’s economic woes on external shocks at a time when the cedi was one of the worst-performing currencies

The minister’s position then was that the president’s assertion was inaccurate because the fall of the cedi was largely due to fiscal irresponsibility on the part of the government and not external shocks.

He is shocked that, after listening to the audio, any right-thinking person will think he was referring to the current Vice President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
