Strangely, we have a lot of people asking the question of “Who is the biggest liar in Ghana”. It makes one wonder why anyone will be thinking of such a question when there are far more important things to think about.
My question is, what makes one the biggest liar in Ghana? And what parameters are used to determine who the biggest liar in Ghana is? These are the questions that come to mind when I see this question topping Google searches.
However, people have their own opinion about who they think it is and it unsurprisingly always happens to be a politician topping the charts.
What usually informs people’s perception of who the biggest liar in Ghana is depends on which side you belong in terms of Party affiliations.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia
As we speak, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia appears in all searches as the biggest liar in Ghana. He has been given that tag by netizens and Ghanaians as a whole not because it is verifiable or there are laid out parameters to prove that he is indeed Ghana’s biggest liar. However, the renowned economist and vice president finds himself topping the chart as the biggest liar in Ghana.
Maybe his only mistake was perhaps politics. I’m not sure he would have been tagged by many as the biggest liar in Ghana if he had stayed in the corporate world playing the role of an economist. However, here he is acting as a Vice President because President Nana Addo won the 2016 and 2020 elections and as a result earning this tag due to his own actions and inactions.
His comments on how best Ghana and the ghanaian economy can be managed while in opposition are completely different now that he is in power. Hence leading to many tagging him as the biggest liar in Ghana.
Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo
President Nana Addo also ranks high on the lips of many Ghanaians as to who the biggest liar in Ghana is. Till date, there is a section of Ghanaians who believe he deceived the electorates into voting for him at the 2016 and 2020 General elections.
They believe he has failed to fulfill the many promises he made that influenced them to vote for him. Hence as a result been tagged by some as Ghana’s biggest liar.
John Dramani Mahama
Former President Mahama also finds his name on the lips of some Ghanaians as the biggest liar in Ghana. It is always members of the opposition party who have this belief and you can’t fault them for that because everyone is entitled to his or her opinion.
Yes, he may have said certain things while he was President of the country and even now that he is in opposition which may be untrue. However, that certainly is not enough to tag him as the biggest liar in Ghana.
In conclusion, I would say it will require alot of effort from them (Akuffo Addo, Bawumia and Mahama) to change the minds of those who think of them in that manner.
