WHY HOLD A DEBATE WHEN INFRASTRUCTURAL ACHIEVEMENTS OF BOTH REGIMES ARE ACCESSIBLE
It is the zenith of ludicrousness and foolhardiness for anyone to call for a debate between President Akufo-Addo and John Dramani Mahama over infrastructure when the debate has already been kick-started.
This call by Mahama and his assigns does not synchronize with their own admissions and pronouncements. Mahama is on record to have stated that comparing records on infrastructure is an exercise in mediocrity.
Sam Nettey George, just yesterday, on Citi FM’s EyeWitness News rejected the calls by some Ghanaians to have Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang respond to Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, saying the woman is streets ahead of Bawumia and would not debase her status to engage the Veep.
Sam George, by inference, would want us to believe that a retired educationist has a higher status than the Vice President of the Republic. The same Sam George is angling for a showdown between Mahama and President Akufo-Addo.
They find it an anathema for Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang to avail herself for a debate with Dr. Bawumia for some grotesque reasons.
The NDC, in the run-up to the 2016 elections, compiled a whole book of projects they claimed they had achieved and brandished same to the general public and told us to renew their mandate for a yeoman’s job.
The NPP, in less than four years, has undertaken 17,355 infrastructural projects and has mounted all of them on a website where Ghanaians can surf and acclimatize themselves with same.
Whatever information to be made available to Ghanaians can be accessed from the Green Book and the website designed by the Akufo-Addo administration. This makes the calls for a debate moot.
