The National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has said that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is a blatant liar.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, the cost of the Kwame Nkrumah interchange as said by the vice president is clear lies.
Dr. Bawumia, speaking at a town hall meeting on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, said the NDC government constructed the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange at a cost of $260 million while four interchanges constructed by the NPP government cost $289 million.
Speaking in an interview Daily News Ghana monitored Sammy Gyamfi said Dr. Bawumia’s words are false with no basics.
“On the issue of the cost of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, the claims Dr. Bawumia made are misleading and not factual. But to break that down for the ordinary Ghanaian to understand, what Dr. Bawumia did was simply mischievous,” he said on Citi TV’s point of view.
“He told a blatant lie when he said the cost of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange project is $260 million and we need to settle that issue once and for all because if you check the parliamentary Hansard of 16th August 2012, when the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange project was approved, it was very clear that the cost of the project as approved by Parliament was £74.8 million equivalent to $90 million at the time and Kwame Nkrumah interchange had only one phase, there was no phase two,” he added.
