Ghana Lawmaker Slams VP Bawumia, Says He Is Like Man United’s Maguire

 

A member of the Parliament of Ghana, Adongo Frank Fuseini, during a parliamentary session on Thursday, mocked the country’s Vice President (VP), Mahamudu Bawumia.

Adongo got his colleagues at the Parliament laughing so hard during the presentation of Ghana 2023 Budget, when he shared how Manchester United defender, Harry Maguire, who was once considered one of the world’s best defenders, eventually became a threat to his own team.

“Mr Speaker, this man was crying everywhere that businesses are collapsing because of interest rates.

“Today, Kokumesa enterprise will have to borrow about 36 per cent of the government’s borrowing.
