The Deputy Campaign Manager of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mustapha Hamid has said that the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has no moral right to call for debate with President Akufo-Addo.
The Nana Addo-led government has rejected calls from the opposition NDC for a debate concerning infrastructural projects done by each administration.
“That challenge is unnecessary. Taking it or not is unnecessary. First of all, this challenge by Mahama clearly shows what we have told the Ghanaian people that he is a person who has no principle and stance on anything. He is a flip flop, he is wishy-washy and indecisive.”
“In 2012, he said clearly to the people of this country that debate about records is a recipe for mediocrity. So what has changed that he wants a debate on infrastructure records that he wants us to descend into the mediocrity that he is in? We are not ready for his mediocrity. He is indecisive and wishy-washy. We are not interested in any debate. It is not necessary”, he said on Eyewitness News on Thursday.
Mr. Abdul-Hamid believes Ghanaians are already “awarding their marks”, on the achievements of the NPP in comparison with that of the NDC hence any debate to set the record straight in a “theoretical debate” will make no significant change.
“For me as far as I am concerned, I don’t think theoretical debates are necessary. People feel what we do in their everyday lives, and they are in a better position to make their judgement on December 7 with or without debate,” he added.
