Bawumia: Mahama’s fear of debate reveals weakness of his policies


Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has accused John Dramani Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, of avoiding a debate out of fear that his “empty policies” will be exposed.


Bawumia expressed his eagerness for a debate with Mahama during the second phase of his nationwide campaign at Nalerigu on Wednesday, July 11. He criticized Mahama for refusing to participate in a debate, claiming that Mahama’s reluctance stems from a fear of having his policies scrutinized.


“I am looking forward to a debate with John Dramani Mahama on the economy and governance, but I am afraid he is running away from a debate, and his people say he doesn’t want to debate,” Bawumia stated. “He says he doesn’t want to debate because he knows that I will expose the emptiness of his policies.”


Bawumia further challenged Mahama’s 24-hour economy policy, calling it “as empty as an empty barrel” and suggesting that Mahama and his team are unable to provide a coherent explanation for it. “He says he has a 24-hour economy policy that he cannot explain,” Bawumia said. “None of his people can explain it, and they say they will be exporting lions and elephants.”


Despite Mahama’s refusal to debate, Bawumia vowed to persist in promoting the NPP’s policies to Ghanaians. “When we meet man-to-man, we can debate and the country will see where our policies lie and that is where we should go, give the country an opportunity to listen to us,” he said. “But if he chooses not to debate, I will continue to sell my policies to the people of Ghana and you will take the decision.”
