The flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, said the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is desperately implementing the NDC’s People’s Manifesto after chastising the NDC of not having a manifesto.
Reports gathered by Talks Africa Media from Graphic Online source, reveals that John Mahama said the governing NPP had abandoned their manifesto and rather discussing the provisions in the NDC’s manifesto to the extent of implementing the manifesto of the NDC.“
The NPP told Ghanaians that we, the NDC, did not have a manifesto and yet after the NDC launched its manifesto, they have started executing key highlights of the manifesto of the opposition NDC,” he said.
According to the source, Mr Mahama was speaking at a durbar of the chiefs and people of Agona Swedru at the Swedru Main Lorry Park as part of his five-day campaign tour of the Central Region last Wednesday.
He was accompanied by the National Chairman of the NDC, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, former Trade and Industry Minister, Mr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, former Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister, Madam Sherry Ayittey, former Ambassador to United Kingdom, Mr Victor Smith, among other party bigwigs.
Mr Mahama said NDC’s promise to change the Act banning ‘Okada business” had also sent shivers down the spine of the NPP who are claiming that the government had already initiated plans to that effect.
“I wish to call on the NPP not to shy away from implementing the transformational policies and programmes contained in the NDC’ manifesto since it was carefully drafted for the benefit of all Ghanaians” he stated.
