Former president John Mahama has taken a jab at vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, stressing his recent Townhall Meeting in Kumasi was only meant to flatter.

According to Mr. Mahama, the vice president interprets statistics to suit his government when the reality on the ground is on the contrary.

At the Kumasi Townhall Meeting, Dr. Bawumia said the Akufo-Addo-led government has delivered 78% of its promises and when it comes to managing the economy his government comes tops in the Fourth Republic.

“The data speaks for itself,” Dr Bawumia declared.

“The data and the evidence is clear that we have largely met our manifesto promises. We have delivered and are delivering on over 300 of our promises, and we are on course to do even more,” he confidently declared.

However, reacting to that assertion, Mr. Mahama said Dr. Bawumia is only pleasing himself and his masters.

“When you write your own questions and mark your own script you can give yourself any marks. I’ve no comment. That’s his assessment of themselves,” Mahama told TV3’s William Evans-Nkum in an interview monitored by

Mr. Mahama said the electorate will decide in the December polls.

He added: “Statistics can be interpreted anywhere, depends on how you use the statistics. That’s his interpretation of the statistics. He’s marking his own script and giving himself marks. The people of Ghana will mark on 7th December, 2020.”

Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), will be challenging incumbent President Akufo-Addo whose party will head for the primaries on April 25.
