Making the presentation at the briefing, the immediate past Deputy Minister of Education Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said a total of 631 promises were found in the 2016 NPP Manifesto but only 86 of them were found to have been delivered.
“We have discovered that the 631 promises that we listed, after thorough analysis, combing through documents, what they’ve told us in Parliament, ladies and gentleman, it will shock you to realize that only 86 out of this 631 promise that has been delivered. So the percentage achieved is 14%, not 78%,” he said.
But in a sharp rebuttal on the same day, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah urged Ghanaians to ignore the ignorance and lies of the opposition NDC.
He described the NDC’s press conference as full of rhetorics and inaccuracies.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah also said the NDC’s website, www.nppfailedpromises.com, was inactive as at the time of address the media in Accra on Monday, June 15.

The MP for Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency also said the NDC press conference was a classic example of “intellectual dishonesty".
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has suspended six of its members who are polling station officials in the Juaben Constituency of the Ashanti Region.
The six have been suspended for 21 days for invoking curses on executives of the constituency because their candidate failed to pass the mark for the NPP’s upcoming primaries on June 20.
The suspension took effect on June 12, 2020, and will end on July 2, 2020.
