I did not go to IEA Debate to speak grammar - Hassan Ayariga


Hassan Ayariga (PNC)I did not go to IEA Debate to speak grammar - Hassan Ayariga

02 November 2012

The Presidential candidate of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Hassan Ayariga has replied his critics who say his performance at the IEA Presidential debate was far below expectation, saying, the platform was to outline policies and not to speak grammar.





Civil society groups and most Ghanaians have described his performance as abysmal with some describing it as very poor.

But Mr. Ayariga insists he put stellar performance at the debates.

He said: “I think that I excelled even more than the President and Abu Sakara, including Nana Akufo-Addo. At the debate, I was treated unfairly because at the debate hall, you realized that all the three contestants came with some kind of booklet which they referred to. I was the only person who walked to the hall without a piece of paper. If a debate is going to be based on you coming and people coming to ask you questions; why do we go there with documents, manifestos and notes?”

“I don’t see it to be a debate, but I see it to be the three political parties coming to outline their visions. So I stand tall in the first place; I stood there without a note, I stood there without a pamphlet, I stood there without manifesto to refer to but they did that. So can you compare Ayariga’s performance with their performance even though I excelled than them?” he asked.

In response to public comments that he wasn’t eloquent in his presentation and made grammatical errors, he said: “Some were just speaking oral English; speaking slangs; that is not what we are looking for. I am a German trained; 20 years I have been in Germany. If I want to speak German, none of them will understand one word. I am not here to speak German or speak slangs. I am here to outline visions and I am here to outline policies.”

The PNC flagbearer however admitted he may have erred in one or two instances “but even English lecturers and graduates make mistakes and everyone does from time to time,” he added.
