President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will not be debating ex-president and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on their infrastructure records.
John Dramani Mahama called for a debate with his successor to prove to Ghanaians who had done more in the area of infrastructure.
But Mr Akufo-Addo will not debate his main contender in the 2020 presidential election.
National Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku, said the call by the ex-president is “pointless, unnecessary and insulting to the people of Ghana.”
He said: “facts are out there for people to verify.”
But NDC Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi said the debate would afford Ghanaians the opportunity to know which of the two leading candidates has performed better.
