The maiden Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) and National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) Presidential Debate came off at the State Banquet Hall in Accra, Wednesday.
Out of the seven presidential candidates contesting in next week's presidential election, five took part in this debate.
They include candidates of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), President John Mahama and Progressive People's Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom.
The rest are an Independent Candidate, Joseph Osei Yeboah, People's National Convention (PNC)'s Edward Mahama and Convention People's Party (CPP)'s Ivor Kobina Greenstreet.
Missing in action were the leader of the biggest opposition party, New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and National Democratic Party (NDP)'s Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings.
Ghanaians on social media tried to score the performance of the five contesting candidates and also expressed their views on what the candidates said or did not say during the debate.
YEN.con.gh, bring you a sample of what Ghanaians said on Facebook and Twitter.
Konadu's first ever opportunity 2 debate @JDMahama and u flee? And @NAkufoAddo rejects FREE publicity but PAY 4 live coverage? Disappointing
This is an interesting country, we just had an IEA debate, we pretended we did not see only three presidential candidates attend.NCCE or whatever GBC platform, YAANOM have started where is HE, where is SHENow you want to see HE and SHE.
My verdict on the debate:
