The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Keta  Constituency in the Volta Region, Richard Quashigah, has fired Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for suggesting that Minority MPs were ‘ignorant’ about the $2.25 billion 15-year domestic bond.

Dr Bawumia was reacting to suggestions by the minority that the latest government’s transaction was shrouded in secrecy.

 “It shows a lack of understanding. The minority has never understood this economy. It shows ignorance and I’m so sad this is coming from people who should know better.” “Maybe they should read a little…we are doing even much better,” Dr. Bawumia punched the Minority, adding, “They are really demonstrating a lot of ignorance in the process of managing the economy,” Dr Bawumia fired.

However, in a statement, the Keta MP, who is also Deputy Ranking Member on Employment, said “If indeed those were his words, then it is not only unfortunate, but a very jaundiced conclusion to have been made by him,”

“If indeed the reportage as put out by the media is accurate, then he is advised to learn to speak with diplomacy and dignity expected of a Vice President or else before long he could cause this nation an incalculable international embarrassment. Assuming without admitting that the minority got it wrong, couldn’t he have clarified without insults?” Quashigah stated.

He therefore urged the Vice President of Ghana |to do the excellent thing by withdrawing and apologizing to the good people of Ghana saying, “the use of intemperate language is unbecoming of the Vice President.”
