Incompetence tag on Mahama was fact but…- Samira Bawumia


Samira Bawumia says her incompetence tag on former President Mahama was ‘fact’ but not a personal attack

Samira Bawumia says the description of former President John Mahama’s government as incompetent during the election campaigns in 2016 was not without a basis.

She said her comments only reflected the situation as she saw it.

“It was a fact,” she said to Bernard Avle on Accra-based Citi FM, Wednesday.

She, however, added that the incompetence tag wasn’t an attack on the person of Mr Mahama.

“It wasn’t a personal attack on him. Not many people will say he is not a good guy,” she said.

She explained that many people, even in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) are fans of Mr Mahama but it was his governance style that attracted criticism.

She said considering the state of the country handed over to the National Democratic Congress (NDC), more could have been done..

“The opportunity they had in 2009, I believe he could have done more as a president,” she said.

“The country had potential to be taken to a better place,” she added.

The Second Lady, however, acknowledged that “nobody [no government] can solve all the problems but you [leaders] must show the determination to do it…”

Mrs Bawumia repeated her husband’s description of the Mahama-led NDC government as incompetent in October 2016 at Tema.

“We are saying to the NDC that we see you alright…you want us to see you, we see you but we see incompetence, we see you but we see corruption, we see you but we see bad management, we see you but we see bad governance, we see you but we want change, we see you but we want Ghana to move forward…” she said to loud cheers from thousands of NPP supporters at a rally.

Mr Mahama earlier this year conceded that the ‘incompetence’ tag affected his party’s campaign.

“They kept shouting incompetence, incompetence, incompetence until our own people started believing that we are incompetent,” he said at a forum of NDC supporters in London.
