What fresh vision do you have? – KNUST Don Asks Bawumia


In response to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s assertion that he has his own vision for how to bring prosperity to Ghana, a senior lecturer at the Department of History and Political Studies at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has taken a shot at him.

Dr. Akwasi Amakye Boateng contends that despite being the vice president of the nation, Dr. Bawumia’s assertion that he had a vision that will revolutionise Ghana is illogical.


The lecturer questioned in a June 20, 2023 interview on Kumasi-based Angel FM what prevented the vice president from pitching his plan to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to pull the nation out of the current economic mess.

“What does Bawumia mean when he talks about his ‘new vision’? What does that imply, exactly?… I’m having issues with this.

“You’re the vice president of this country; the economy is in horrible shape; the president trusted you, but you were unable to assist him in addressing the issues facing the economy… This is why I am unable to understand what Bawumia is saying at this time, he remarked in Twi.

In this day and age, our ladies must travel to Burkina Faso to import tomatoes since the economy is so awful. and people want us to applaud this administration,” he continued.

What the doctor said:

The vice president said that he had his own vision for Ghana, which is to see the country utilise technology, data, and systems for inclusive economic growth, after submitting his nomination for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential primary.

On June 16, 2023, Dr. Bawumia remarked in a speech to party members at the party’s headquarters that he had put a lot of effort into both his personal and professional lives to be where he is now.

My personal vision for Ghana is also something I have. With the fundamentals now in place, I think it’s time to take Ghana to the next level,” he remarked.

I want to make Ghana the digital hub of Africa. I want us to bridge the digital divide and use digital technology and artificial intelligence for the transformation of healthcare, education, and public service delivery, among other things. Together with you, I want to see a Ghana where we leverage technology, data, and systems for inclusive economic growth.
