Before asking for a “showdown” with the late President John Mahama, the former Finance Minister Seth Terkper has urged Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia to respond to questions he had for the late Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur.

He outlined the many accomplishments Mr. Mahama made while serving as vice president, including the founding of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) as an independent organization in 2009.

“The criteria he gave to my boss, the late Amissah-Arthur, he has the question she should answer those same questions, is it not fair? He should answer the same question. He is not coming to a debate.

“So is he (Dr. Bawumia) going back to that era to have a debate? So he has the questions. He should pull out the questions and answer them. You remember he spoke about the fundamentals. The fundamentals don’t vary from one period to the other,” Mr. Terkper stated on Starr FM.

He continued: “Let me remind His Excellency that the Fiscal Responsibility Act which he championed including the oversight board said we should do a deficit of five percent. But they are at 12 percent if you add everything they are about 15 percent.”

In order to give the National Democratic Congress (NDC) a “showdown” in its strongholds in the 2024 elections, Vice President Bawumia has promised the NPP.

On September 9, 2023, Dr. Bawumia told NPP delegates in the Oti Region that Zongo and other NDC strongholds were only waiting for him to be chosen as the NPP’s flag bearer.

“People in the Zongo communities say they doubt that the NPP will ever make Dr Bawumia the flagbearer for the upcoming 2024 general elections. However, if they do bring Bawumia, we will vote massively for him. Thus, the NDC will lose massively in their two strongholds, the North and the Zongo communities, should Bawumia emerge as flagbearer.”

“I will also win more votes for the NPP in the Volta region. Therefore, I will shake all their strongholds. That is why they (NDC) do not want Dr Bawumia to emerge as the flagbearer. Because they know that as flagbearer, I will give them a showdown in their strongholds,” he stated.
