I'm the 'king' of ideas – Bawumia says Mahama not innovative thinker

L-R: Bawumia and Mahama

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has said former President John Mahama is no match for him when it comes to innovative and transformative ideas.

Discrediting the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer's 24-hour economy idea as "bad," Dr Bawumia told party supporters in the Northern Region that he has superior ideas to Mr Mahama's.

“This is one idea that John Mahama thinks that he has brought, it is a bad idea," Dr Bawumia said, adding: "It is an idea that hasn’t been thought through, so, I want you to compare me to John Mahama: who has the ideas to transform this economy?"

“The track record of John Mahama doesn’t show innovative thinking, it doesn’t show ideas," the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) said, noting: "The track record of Dr Bawumia is idea after idea."

"I have my own priorities and I have my own vision. When I become president, I will bring more ideas and you will hear them very soon,” he noted.
