He says the NDC has a more superior record of providing an equitable distribution of development projects across the country than the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The NPP's National Organiser, Sammi Awuku, in a response to the former president, said the party has its own plans and strategies in the buildup to the 2020 elections, and it does not include a debate with Mahama.
