Sammy Gyamfi has questioned Vice President Bawumia’s silence on the rising cost of living and other economic issues facing Ghana.
When asked why prices in Ghana were rising, he claimed it was because Dr. Bawumia, who heads the government’s Economic Management Team and is lauded by supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as a “economic messiah,” had disappeared.

In a Twitter post, Sammy Gyamfi said a gallon of diesel is selling at GHS72 while the dollar is selling at GHS12.5. The cost of living keeps soaring but the braggadocios talkative and chairman of the EMT @MBawumia (Dr. Bawumia), who was once projected as the answer to all our economic woes, has gone AWOL.
