The 2016 Presidential Candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akuffo-Addo has been running away from an opportunity to debate President Mahama on issues surrounding his term in office.

President Mahama made this assertion in an interview with Ovation Magazine.

“I have challenged him (Akufo-Addo) to a debate, I have said bring all these points you are raising one by one and lets us have a debate. Let me and you debate to the Ghanaian public about the points you are raising; inflation, infrastructure and things. But he has ran away.”

The leader of the NPP has often accused the governing National Democratic Congress of corruption, mismanagement of the economy, and poor governance but President Mahama said he would rather prefer a debate than mere accusations.

Nana Addo has also called the President incompetent. Asked whether he (Mahama) was not running away from a debate, because his party had said he will not participate in the IEA debate.

He answered by asking “How can I run from a debate? I want a productive debate, one on one with Nana Akufo-Addo. What they are talking about is the IEA. I want a debate on all the contentious issues he has raised. And I will respond and Ghanaians will be the judge.”
