Dr. Clement Apaak, representing Builsa South in Parliament, has responded to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s recent comments, where Bawumia stated that his remarks about compensating churches were meant in jest.

Apaak emphasized that the present circumstances demand a serious leader, not one who jests, given the nation’s pressing issues.

Vice President Bawumia clarified that his previous statement about compensating churches rather than taxing them was misconstrued. He explained that he intended to acknowledge the significant contributions of religious institutions in areas such as education and healthcare, advocating for further support for their efforts.

However, Apaak, known for his critical stance towards Bawumia, dismissed the notion of considering a leader he labeled as a “comical liar” for the presidency.

He stressed the need for a competent and sincere leader to address the country’s challenges, advocating for the visionary leadership of former President John Dramani Mahama.

Mr Apaak asserted that Mahama is the best-suited candidate to navigate the nation through its difficulties, emphasizing Mahama’s qualities of sincerity, honesty, and vision.

“Now is not the time to consider a comical liar. Certainly not a joker at this critical juncture.

“With the serious challenges we face as a nation, we need a serious, focused, visionary, sincere, and honest leader. This leader is John Dramani Mahama, the man equipped to tackle our challenges, not a joker.”
