President John Dramani Mahama has thrown an open challenge again to opposition leader, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his running mate Dr. Mahammudu Bawumia to a debate on the economy.
According to him, this will give Ghanaians an opportunity to know the true state of the Ghanaian economy because his main contender and his running mate have been churning out a lot of misinformation about the country’s economy.
“If we have a one-on-one debate, we will all have our statistics and our figures and Ghanaians will be able to see who is telling the truth and who is not telling the truth.”
This comes after an earlier accusation by Mr. Mahama that Nana Akufo-Addo has always been running away from a one-on-one debate with him.
However, the President in an interview on Volta Star Radio during his campaign tour of the Volta Region said: “when I threw the first challenge, I threw it because a lot of misinformation was being thrown all over the place and Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate continue to misinform the Ghanaian public and that is why I said let us have a one-on-one debate.”
He stressed :“I believe that Ghanaians deserve a debate between myself and Nana Akufo-Addo and I hope that they will respond and rise to the occasion.”
