The Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has stated that Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu’s comment illustrates Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s ignorance.

According to him, even in war zones couples manage to do the needful.  

The Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu, has said the former President John Mahama’s proposed 24-hour economy will create broken homes.

According to him, the policy will prevent men from sleeping with their wives at night which will eventually cause challenges in various homes.

The regional minister said this on behalf of the Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia at a durbar of traditional chiefs in Nabdam, a district in the Upper East Region on Saturday.

Reacting to the Upper East Regional Minister’s comments, the Builsa South lawmaker stated that Ghanaians will not vote for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after inflicting such economic hardship on them.

“What has a 24-hour economy got to do with farming at night and sleeping or not sleeping with wives at night? Don’t men in 24-hour economies sleep with their wives? Even in war zones, couples manage to do the needful. The comments of the Upper East Regional Minister in reaction to JM’s much welcomed 24-hour economy proposal in the attached video typifies the silly and deliberate ignorance of Dr. Bawumia and the NPP.

“Indeed, Bawumia and the NPP have nothing to offer Ghanaians.  Ghanaians are not that stupid to give the USELESS, corrupt, and reckless Akufo-Addo/Bawumia NPP gov’t an extension in office,” Dr. Apaak stated.

He continued: “No rational human being will choose a group that has inflicted such pain and suffering on him/her whiles living large as if there is no tomorrow. The Akufo-Addo/Bawumia NPP gov’t must pay dearly for the excruciating hardship they have subjected Ghanaians to.”
