Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Social media users have reacted to a jab by Former President John Dramani Mahama, which was directed at a top member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Otchere-Darko.
This was as a result of Gabby’s reaction to a campaign poster of the New Democratic Congress (NDC), which promised changes in some aspects of governance.
The poster, which has since gone viral, sought to review the size of the government and deal with challenges in the agriculture, health and financial sectors, as well as insecurity in Ghana.
The assurance did not go down well with Gabby, who wondered how a serious prospective government can promise such reliefs.
In his opinion, the person in charge of NDC’s campaign strategy is certainly confused.
His comments did not go down well with Mahama who wondered how Gabby could take such matters seriously.
He added that it is obvious the advert is not official and Gabby’s obsession with it is a result of psychosis.
Mahama wondered why Gabby, who is branding himself as a Prime Minister, is not concerned about weightier matters of the state but chooses to concern himself with an amateurish design by an NDC supporter.
In other news, information available to YEN.com.gh shows the government is likely to pay temporary incomes to those who lost their jobs following the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The National Unemployment Insurance Scheme (NUIS) will become one of the remedial measures employed by the government to lessen the financial burdens on such people.
Details relating to the nature and composition of the relief are unclear, but it expected the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, will provide details about it.
