Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the running mate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), delivered a lecture on "The state of the Ghanaian economy, a foundation of concrete or straw”.

The former Bank of Ghana governor spoke about how the economy has been mismanaged under the leadership of John Mahama.

For instance, he said,  Ghana’s debt to GDP ratio has increased from 32% in 2008 to 72% as at the end of 2015 while the cedi has depreciated from GH¢1.2 to the dollar in 2009 to GH¢ 3.95.

Dr Bawumia also said that the government had borrowed $39 billion dollars in the last eight years with nothing to show for it.

Here are some photos from the event:
