Akufo-Addo will not debate Mahama on infrastructure – NPP

The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rejected a debate challenge over infrastructure by the Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President John Dramani Mahama.

According to the party, there was no need for a debate to tell Ghanaians what the Akufo-Addo government has done in the provision of infrastructure and that Ghanaians “can see those infrastructure for themselves.”

The NPP’s National Organizer, Mr. Sammi Awuku, in an interview with Accra-based Joy FM on Thursday, August 20, 2020, said President Akufo-Addo will not debate Mr Mahama.

Former President Mahama on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, challenged the Akufo-Addo-led government to a debate over infrastructure in order to settle the issue of whose government has performed well in the area of infrastructure.

Mr Awuku said in the areas of both infrastructure and industrialization, "you don't need someone to tell you about what is happening; you see it, you walk through it... "
