Vice President Dr Bawumia says a presidential debate ahead of the 2020 general elections between the leaders of the two major politicals parties, NPP and NDC, is unnecessary.
Dr Bawumia said the two leaders have records that can be assessed by the electorates to determine who to vote for, therefore, there is no need for a debate.
He said the citizens are already doing the assessment and they will vote for NPP government.
Dr Bawumia explained that the debate will be interesting but it is unnecessary.
He said this on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen.
Bawumia also said the activities of the Western Togoland group is criminal and the government is not willing to go to the negotiation table with them.
The Vice President said the government and the security agencies are working hard to bring their activities to a halt.
He went on to say that their basis for the violent act does not fall in line with the law and they are overstepping their boundaries.
“We promised to protect the people of Ghana and we have done it. What is happening is criminal behaviour, all Ghanaians should be worried because we are a very peaceful nation. Ghana has not been a place where you will find these issues coming up. The history does not support what they are saying and that is a figment of their imagination. Ghana must come together and this is not a political matter because this is a situation we have with some criminals who want to distort history and that is where we must be worried. We have invested a lot in the security services and we trust them to do a good job, so far they have been able to contain the situation”
When asked if the government will be willing to sit and negotiate with the group he answered: “Why should we sit with criminals, if we do that then we would have to engage everyone, it does not make sense because their activities are unlawful”
