Credible information coming out of the Flagstaff House has it that Snr. Minister, Osarfo-Marfo, is on a very serious collision course with Vice President, Dr. Bawumia, for speaking about the Heritage Fund without the express permission of the Economic Management Team which is supposed to be headed by the Vice President.
Apparently, Bawumia knew nothing about the proposed use of the Heritage Fund, and when he sought explanation, he was snubbed by Osarfo-Marfo.
It is common knowledge that Bawumia has been sidelined by Osarfo-Marfo who is acting as a defacto Prime Minister.
It would be recalled that during his vetting, Osarfo-Marfo made it abundantly clear that he will be “reporting directly to the President”, and shall have no reporting lines through the Vice President.
Just like the failing Trump Administration in the USA; the Akuffo-Addo Administration is also failing badly as there is a lot of power play at the Seat of Government with so many people taking decisions on their own and not keeping the Vice President in the loop.
To cut a long story short; Bawumia has become a sleeping “dog” at the Flagstaff House.
Of course: Samira Bawumia too has been put in a “cage” by Rebecca Akufo-Addo in order to prevent the “little girl” from outshining Rebecca.
Poor Bawumia & Samira; only God knows the kinds of bitter complaints they are making to close relatives and friends about how they have been sidelined by Akuffo-Addo and his Akyem mafia at the Flagstaff House led by, Gabby Otchere-Darko and Nana Asante Bedietuo.
