“Mr. Speaker, I am not surprised if you are a fan of football and I am happy to see you the other day jubilating when Ghana won.
“There was a player in England called Maguire who was playing for Manchester United. Harry Maguire is a defender. He was tackling everybody and throwing his body everywhere and he was seen as the best defender in the world.
“Manchester United went and bought him. He became the biggest threat at the center of Manchester United's defense, tackling Manchester United players and giving assists to opponents.
When even the opponents fail to score, Maguire will score for them. Mr. Speaker in this country we also have an economic Maguire,” he stated.
Adongo compared the English star to Ghana's Vice President, arguing that the latter continues to make costly decisions.
“When we allowed this economic Maguire to be at the center of our defense, he became the risk of our own goal. Bawumia, our economic Maguire, is now tackling all the fundamentals of our economy and destroying them,” he ended.
Harry Maguire is currently in Qatar with the English national team, which is set to play African representatives Senegal in the round of 16 on Sunday, December 4.
