Ghana’s opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will launch its manifesto for the 2020 elections on Monday, August 31,2020, officials have said.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, August 24, the National Communications Officer of the party Sammy Gyamfi said the event will take place in Accra.
“I’m a member of the manifesto launch committee and it was decided that our manifesto will be launched on the 31st of August. And to those of you who are wondering whether it will be in Accra or another region, it will be in Accra,” Mr Gyamfi stressed.
The main opposition’s manifesto launch will follow a week after the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) held theirs this past weekend.
The ruling New Patriotic Party launched its manifesto for the December polls last Saturday August 22, 2020 at Cape Coast in the Central region.
Even before the manifesto launch, the party's flagbearer John Dramani Mahama has promised to create one million jobs for the youth, legalise okada business, provide free primary health care, fight corruption among other promises.
At the NPP's launch, President Nana Akufo-Addo chided the NDC for delaying in outdooring the manifesto.
For example, he said: “You might remember how long it took the NDC presidential candidate to find a running mate, and they have not yet got a Manifesto”.
Meanwhile, Mr. Gyamfi also stated that the NPP government is deceiving Ghanaians with their infrastructure project claims.
Mr Gyamfi said the NDC's investigations into the claims made by Dr Bawumiah revealed hundreds of ghost projects.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says it has not considered any decision to debate the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama.
The NDC presidential candidate is proposing a debate of track record of delivery with President Akufo-Addo.
The former president sent out the invitation to debate the incumbent while addressing the chiefs and elders of Dzolokpuita in the Ho West constituency as part of his tour of the Volta Region on Wednesday, August 18.
