A Presidential Staffer at the office of the President, Mr Evron Hughes has slammed flagbearer aspirant of the NDC, Mr Alex Mould for expressing his willingness to debate Vice President, Mahamoud Bawumia.
In a post on his Facebook wall, he wrote, “Alex Mould surprises me. Not because he’s still interested in partnering Mahama, (that alone raises a lot of questions about him) but because he frames his pitch to Mahama in the context of being able to “match” Dr Bawumia, supposedly in a debate“.
“While this is flattering – that Vice President Bawumia is THE STANDARD NDC has been struggling to match since the time of the Late Amissah Arthur – it actually reflects the incompetence and lack of strategic thinking which afflicts the entire NDC clan”.
“Anyone who intends to use Dr Bawumia as a lightning rod for his (or her) rise to the stature of a Vice President should be looking at what the NPP Government has achieved with the overwhelming mandate given to them by Ghanaians in three short years, not at whether s/he can win “debates.” If it is debate Alex Mould is interested in, he can be sure there are many hungry to debate him including Madam Akua Donkor”.
“In the scheme of things, this election will largely be about what the Mahama-led NDC did with the mandate they were given, especially in its last four years vis-a-vis the NPP”.
“Alex Mould may look handsome, but as “Pretty Boy” Mahama showed us as Vice President, and then President, governance is not, as my friend Abu The Tailor will say, a “Fa-N-shion” (Fashion) Show”.
