The running mate to John Dramani Mahama, Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang, has said that she would prefer debating Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in Literature instead of Economics if given the chance.
In an interview with Nana Aba Anamoah of GhOne Television, the retired professor of English Language indicated that since her field of expertise lies in English Language, that should be her focus should there be a debate between her and Dr. Bawumia.
“If there’s a chance to debate Mahamudu Bawumia, why not. If he debates me on the economy, I will debate him on literature” she told Nana Aba.
Elections and debates, the world over, move together. Ghana’s elections have been characterized by debates either between presidential candidates or their running mates.
These debates have elicited policy directions and proposals from political parties seeking to lead this country. What has always been the dominant topic is the economy.
Questions were asked why Mahama would settle on a running mate who has no knowledge on how to manage an economy since he Mahama himself lacks that knowledge.
It is upon this backdrop that Jane Opoku Agyemang is bent on having a debate not on the economy but English Literature.
