Second Lady Samira Bawumia believes her husband Vice President Dr. Mahamudu has uplifted political discourse in the country to a level that is making it very difficult for his opponents to match up.
She averred that Dr. Bawumia’s series of intellectual presentations are becoming a worry to the NDC, and expressed concern over NDC’s inability to match-up to the Vice President.
According to her, Dr. Bawumia was the Achilles’ heel of the NDC with his proficient presentation in economic matters.
This was after she was asked how she feels when she hears her husband’s political opponents insulting him.
“I think what the Vice President has successfully done if I may say so myself is that he’s elevated the political discourse in this country to facts and issue-based politics. And so I wish that we as electorates or voters should demand from every politician to do what is in our interest which is to put their policies forward. If the man says inflation is 7.8% and you insult him how does that make you more attractive to the voter? So we should collectively tell our politicians that, that is not what politics should be about.”
She added: “If you have genuine criticisms why not if you have issues with what he says why not, let’s discuss it but it really shouldn’t be about insults. When someone starts insulting, for me, it’s telling on who they are. It tells me that they have no alternative solution. If you have facts and something good to say you won’t resort to insults.”
Samira Bawumia stressed that the NDC is struggling to get a person within the party to counter the economic analysis of the Vice President.
