The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, has proposed a debate between Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and former President John Mahama.
Mr. Boasiako believes this debate will settle the question of incompetence between the two statesmen, as they will be required to provide evidence of their work. Chairman Wontumi has expressed his willingness to host the debate on one of his media platforms.
“I own Wontumi TV in Kumasi. I own Movement TV in Accra. I own Western Diamond in Takoradi. I can’t wait for the day all these precious media will call for one-on-one interview with Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and John Dramani Mahama for debate and for everybody to listen to them on what you have done and what you want to do. It is not about talking. It is too cheap,” he said.
Dr. Bawumia has repeatedly criticized Mr. Mahama as incompetent, highlighting that despite three decades in active politics, the former president and NDC flagbearer lacks tangible policies for transforming the country.
On the other side of the political spectrum, Stan Dogbe, a former presidential staffer during John Mahama’s administration, contends that Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia’s perceived competence has dwindled. Dogbe asserts that the Vice President is “simply not fit for purpose.”
The upcoming 2024 presidential race will see Vice President Dr. Bawumia and former President Mahama compete head-to-head, setting the stage for a highly anticipated showdown.
