Twitter fans exposes the lies of Ofosu Kwakye

Felix Kwakye Ofosu, a former Deputy Minister of Information under the NDC, shot himself in the foot on Twitter when he attempted a daring reaction to Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s comparative analysis of the NPP and the NDC’s record on currency rate management.
Speaking earlier today at the Government’s Town Hall Meeting in Kumasi, Dr. Bawumia presented Bank of Ghana data from 1992, indicating that the current government’s average annual Cedi depreciating record of 8.7% was the best management of the Cedi by any government in its first term under the 4th Republic.

Dr. Bawumia compared the present government’s “best record” of 8.7 percent from 2017 to 2020 to the previous NDC’s annual cumulative depreciation of 18 percent from 2016 to 2019.
Felix Kwakye Ofosu was ridiculed on social media for accusing Dr. Bawumia of lying in an attempt to respond to him.
“The Ghana Cedi depreciated by 13.7% in 2019. How can Bawumia say they have performed better? Perhaps he believes our media won’t fact check him,” Kwakye Ofosu wrote, in obvious misunderstanding of the subject.

Following his tweet, other Twitter users, most likely supporters of the ruling government, pounced on Kwakye Ofosu.
“Bawumja said average depreciation for 3 years ooo…..just sum the yearly depreciation and divide by 3….that’s the average. Argue with facts,” A twitter user by name Stephen Anim replied Felix Kwakye Ofosu.
“I guess you didn’t hear average. How do we calculate average. Ahwala Ankasa, gyama eny3 serious,” a twitter user Stephen Anim told Felix Kwakye Ofosu.
Eghan Osei also replied Kwakye Ofosu “Ur head die paa oo…..he said average depreciation for 3 years. Check the yearly depreciation rate and divide by 3 wai…..come again.”

“Wo ne b)n de3…..keep quiet and listen to him well. Quote what he said properly,” another twitter user with the handle @GordonGyamera told Kwakye Ofosu.

“Stop this. If you are listening, then listen to the Vice President well,” another Jojo Stephen told the former Minister.

“He said average depreciation Mr Felix. Over a 4 year period,” another said to Kwakye Ofosu.

He then faded out from his replies to Dr. Bawumia’s presentation.
