The Member of Parliament for the Bolgatanga Central Constituency Honourable Isaac Adongo has taken a swift jab on the Vice President of Ghana H.E Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and drags him into the muddy waters for what he describes as his usual lies, adding he is a “lying economic Angel” in the history of Ghana.

His jab was in connection with the Vice President’s Virtual Government Town Hall and Results Fair meeting on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo led NPP government held at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences ( GAAS) on Tuesday, 18th August, 2020 where an infrastructural development tracker website was launched.

Hon. Isaac Adongo, in his statement said, how can a Government with four (4) months left in office show infrastructure record in a town hall meeting?  According to him, this is what happens when your year of roads is touted with a sod cutting of 26km road. A performance-driven Government commissions roads and infrastructure projects with four (4) months to the end of your term not another round of empty lectures and town hall meetings durbed results fair.

As Member of the Ghanaian Parliament’s Finance Committee, he expresses worry and disappointment on the Vice President and descended heavily on him saying “Are you not proud of your 1 village 1 dugout or reshaping and regravelling or your one-seater toilets? Come to Bolga Soe to commission your embarrassing dugout.
Talk is cheap. The toilets, boreholes, reshaping and school blocks that Ghanaians took for granted are now your superior achievements? So what will the superior record of an Assemblyman look like? We have indeed retrogressed.”

Hon. Adongo recounted the treatment meted out to Former President John Dramani Mahama in the run up to the 2016 general elections by the then opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) while he was commissioning major infrastructural projects under the NDC government and described the later as useless. “While JM was described as incompetent by you for commissioning major infrastructure projects at this time in 2016, you are holding Town hall meetings on supposed infrastructure you are ashamed to commission?” He asked.


He again criticised President Akufo-Addo’s government for increasing the public debt of Ghana coupled with corruption, stealing and tyrant in just three (3) years in government. “Never again. After doubling our public debt in 3 and half years to competently finance corruption and stealing, now come and commission your projects. That’s a true show of infrastructure results.” He alleged.

“It is interesting that the President on the day of visiting Western Region with the electorates waiting for him to show his projects, his MP in the area was sitting in a JM visible project with the economic comedian struggling to do the impossible of delivering another confident eloquent lies.” He disclosed.


According to Hon. Isaac Adongo, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has delivered more infrastructure with less resources under former President John Dramani Mahama in four years than President Akufo-Addo’s NPP government.

We’re sick and tired of corruption and hardship in Akufo-Addo’s government – Mahama 

“If Ghanaians voted against commissioning of major infrastructure in 2016, do you think they will vote for sod-cutting, an enhanced promise in your last 4 months in office? Sod cuttings are just enhanced promises and a failed Govt cannot seek solace in more promises on your way out. Big English and confident eloquent lies best describe your shameful legacy.” He told.
