The Executive Director of think tank Imani Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe, has commended the presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for making this years election an issues-based one largely devoid of insults and mudslinging, as was the case in the past.

While Mr Cudjoe was at pains to emphasise this was not an endorsement of Nana Akufo-Addo, he stated: Its a fact that everyone, including all the political parties is talking about education. This is largely because Nana Addo has made education central to his campaign, and all the others are speaking about it.

Franklin Cudjoe made the observation on Adom FMs Dwaso Nsem morning show on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 ahead of the Institute of Economic Affairs-organised Presidential Debate at Tamale on Tuesday.

Mr Cudjoe pointed out that his organization had critically critiqued the NPPs education proposals and made its opposition to free SHS known, but had not really critiqued the education policies of the other parties because clearly speaking, there is no substance, they are all saying the same thing.

On todays debate Mr Cudjoe predicted: I see Nana Addo making his point and not having any credible alternative from the others, especially from the NDC.

He wondered at the din surrounding the declaration of Dr Mensah Otabils opposition to free education, saying Ive listened to the Mensah Otabil tape, I do not see it as anything original, Imani has been saying the same thing for a long time. It is not new, I think it is those using it for propaganda who see it as new. Clearly he was expressing his view, and he is entitled to it.

He cautioned that the response to Dr Otabils comments shouldnt be insults.
