No need for Mahama, Bawumia debate – Joyce Bawah Mogtari

Joyce Bawah Mogtari, the spokesperson for the John Mahama Campaign Team, has rejected calls for a pre-election debate between the NDC flagbearer and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia the flagbearer of the NPP.

Despite appeals from political analysts and other stakeholders, Bawah Mogtari dismissed the idea of a debate between the two major contenders.

In an interview on Channel One TV, Bawah Mogtari praised Mahama’s exceptional energy and vast knowledge but unexpectedly hesitated to accept a debate invitation.

She asserted that the current state of the government’s performance renders a debate unnecessary, expressing supreme confidence in John Mahama’s ability to outshine any presidential aspirant in a debate.

She implied that the NDC’s presidential candidate is so well-prepared and knowledgeable that a debate would only serve to further highlight his superiority, making it an unnecessary endeavour at this point.

“I personally have no appetite for a debate, I think that we debate when we literally know that our issues are probably parallel…When I look at what we have, when I look at the current trajectory, when I look at the failings of this particular administration, I ask myself why do we need to put up with a debate? But of course, this is a decision that the upper people usually will make.

“It’s not my decision to make, as the debates and conversations go along, maybe eventually some conversations will happen around it, and of course, who knows?

“We do know all about the debates between John Mahama and then candidate Akufo-Addo and we know who won those debates. So, I believe that the fact that Mr Mahama is a man whose energy and knowledge is unparallel is not in doubt. And I’m sure on any day, whomever, I know he’s going to win the debate. But I don’t think that immediately I will want to see that you put them through strict proof first,” she told host Bernard Avle.
