Election 2024: Bawumia dares Mahama to two-man debate

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has challenged former President John Mahama to engage in a two-man debate ahead of the December 7, 2024, general election.

In a statement released by Dennis Miracles Aboagye, Communications Director for the Bawumia campaign team, it was emphasised that the debate would provide Ghanaians with the opportunity to choose their next leader after President Akufo-Addo.

Mr Aboagye highlighted that the debate would focus on the achievements of both candidates and their proposed solutions to address the current economic challenges facing the country.

Furthermore, he stated that the debate would help voters discern between the two candidates, particularly regarding their governance track records and approaches to addressing national issues.

“The big issue for 2024 comes down to the two personalities. Which of the two main candidates will Ghanaians want as their next leader after 2024? The one who was given his chance and blew it through his incompetence or the one who has shown what he can do even as a Vice President and is now asking to also be given the opportunity to show what he can do as President? We are daring the main opposition Party to come to a debate on the two personalities.”

“Dr. Bawumia’s Campaign invites the Ghanaian voter to focus on the credibility and weight of the policies of each of the two foremost presidential candidates – Bawumia and Mahama. In the next few months, the Bawumia campaign will humbly but decisively address all major issues facing our nation and how, with the current positive turnaround, he intends to consolidate the gains and tackle the outstanding issues head-on if given the mandate in December,” an excerpt of the statement said.

Dr Bawumia is set to launch his political campaign today, Monday, April 29, in preparation for the December general elections.

Starting in the Eastern Region, the campaign will span across all 16 regions over the next month.

During his tour, Dr. Bawumia intends to engage with a diverse range of stakeholders, including traditional leaders, clergy, youth groups, traders, drivers, farmers, students, and business owners.

The campaign will focus on interacting with citizens from various sectors of society, with visits to marketplaces aimed at engaging both traders and consumers.
