The Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has challenged the President, Nana Akufo-Addo to a debate on infrastructure track records.
“The president said this election is going to be an election of track records, comparing his track record to my track record, we can settle it easily. Let’s have a debate between the two presidents about our records,” Mahama requested.
According to him, it is easy to settle the issue of infrastructure records especially as his governance has a superior record of investing in infrastructure throughout the country.
Addressing the chiefs and elders of Dzolokpuita in the Ho West Constituency on Wednesday as part of his four-day tour to the Volta Region, Mahama also recounted past criticisms on what Akufo-led government said on infrastructures.
He said, “In 2016 when I was talking about the value of infrastructure, my friends on the other side said, we don’t eat infrastructure, we don’t eat roads but today I can see a scramble to grab even KVIPs and any infrastructure and tout it as an achievement”.
The NDC’s presidential candidate has therefore availed himself for debate with Akufo-Addo.
“I am willing to present for a debate on any day, anytime and anywhere to settle the matter once and for all”.
