NDC runningmate Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang says Vice President Mahama Bawumia is prepared to debate it.
The former University of Cape Coast Vice-Chancellor responded, “Why not?” when asked by Nana Aba Anamoah on GHOne TV if she was ready for a one-on-one with the second gentleman of the country. And if he’s discussing the economy, I’ll discuss literature with him.
She also denied arguments that she can not be chair of the economic management committee because she is not an economist.
My opponents are mainly NPPs. They had Aliu Mahama in their own party. Was he an economist? Cancel the Veep Chairs officers, am I meant to be a security man? I am not an economist, but I am aware of the economy. Why is it a prerequisite that an economist must be a veep? Since when was that a part of it? ‘She was curious.
Mahama encourages Akufo-Addo to converse
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate, John Mahama, is proposing a follow-up debate with President Akufo-Addo.As part of his four-day tour of the Volta Region on Wednesday, addressing the Chiefs and Elders of Dzolokpuita in the Ho West constituency, Mr Mahama said the NPP did not understand the importance of his government’s investments in critical infrastructure in 2016. “My friends on the other side said in 2016 when I spoke about the importance of infrastructure, we don’t eat infrastructure, we don’t eat roads, that’s what they said, and today I can see a scramble to catch even KVIP’s and some infrastructure and tout it as an accomplishment,” he said.
However, Mr. Mahama said it is simple to resolve the issue of infrastructure records, especially as the NDC has a superior record of investing in infrastructure nationally, adding that President Akufo-Addo is ready to debate at any forum. The President said that this election was going to be a track record election, comparing his track record to my track record, and we could easily settle it. Let’s have a conversation about our records between the two presidents,’ he said.
