The presidential flagbearer for the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) John Dramani Mahama has once again called on the President Nana Akuffo Addo to come for a debate.

This comes after Nana Akuffo Addo accused him of passing an ethnicentric comment about Akyem people in the country. 

According to Mahama his main rival in the forthcoming elections should discard his ‘Akyem Mafia’ statement and engage him in an intellectual discourse once and for all.

“You will remember that on two occasions in the recent past I’ve called for a debate with President Akufo-Addo he’s not found it worthy to respond to that call. I can understand Akufo-Addo’s frustration and desperation and deliberate attempt to whip up ethnic sentiments in this particular case. I don’t think it will wash,”the former President said. 

“I’ve advocated a campaign of issues and that is what I’m focusing on as I engage and interact with people in my tour of this country. It is important for me to point out that no one has described his ethnic group or any other ethnic group in the manner in which the President mounts this complaint.”
