The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo has accepted the challenge of President John Mahama to debate him over what the president says are “contentious statements” made by the former.
President John Mahama in an interview on TV3’s New Day show Monday said “I’m willing to debate Nana Addo any day, even if you call him today, we’ll put it here and start debating the issues. So i don’t have a problem debating Nana Addo.”
The president further indicated that “he has made a lot of contentious statements so i would have wished you had him here so that we debate the issues.”
President Mahama’s statement came on the back of consistent criticism of his administration by the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate, Dr. Mahmudu Bawumia.I will put it here and start debating the issues. So I don’t have a problem with debating Nana Addo. He [Nana Addo] has made a lot of contentious statements that I would have wished that you had him hear so that we would debate those issues,
But in a tweet late Monday, the NPP’s leader said he is ready to debate the President only on condition that such a debate will fix the numerous problems facing the country, saying “will John Mahama debating me solve Ghana’s Problems? If so then i’m ready to debate him anytime, anywhere, anyday.”
