She also dismissed claims that she cannot be chair of the economic management team because she is not an economist.
“My critics are mostly NPP, in their own party, they have had Aliu Mahama was he an economist? The Veep chairs police cancel, must I be a security man? I’m not an economist but I understand the economy. Why, is it a requirement that the veep must be an economist? since when did that become part of it?” she wondered.
Meanwhile, Prof. Naana Opoku-Agyemang’s boss, Mr John Dramani Mahama is also calling for one-on-one debate with incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Speaking to the Chiefs and elders of Dzolokpuita in the Ho West constituency as part of his four-day tour of the Volta Region on Wednesday, the flagbearer of the NDC said the NPP in 2016 did not appreciate the value of his government’s investments in critical infrastructure.
“In 2016 when I was talking about the value of infrastructure, my friends on the other side said, we don’t eat infrastructure, we don’t eat roads, that was what they said and today I can see a scramble to grab even KVIP’s and any infrastructure and tout it as an achievement”, he said.
