Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom’s Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has said it does not need a huge and neatly packaged document as manifesto to sell its message to the people of Ghana.
Dr Nii Allotey Brew Hammond, who is the chairman of the party, was explaining to Class News on why there had been a delay this time on political parties bringing out their manifestos for this year’s elections.
Dr Hammond admonished Ghanaians not to wait for manifestos on what the parties intend doing, but rather assess their capabilities.
“Our 10 points is our manifesto,” he stated.
“We want the people of Ghana to hold us accountable to our promise to ensure that if given the power, all of our children will go to school from kindergarten to the senior high school. And then we will abolish the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE). That’s all we need the public to know."
He assured Ghanaians that a PPP government will not only provide jobs, but create jobs as well. “We will also want the public to hold us accountable to our pledge that when elected, we will provide jobs, we will create jobs for every Ghanaian that is looking for a job to do because there are jobs,” he assured.
The PPP also revealed as part of their 10 points in their manifesto, a conscientious effort to address preventable diseases.
“We want Ghanaians to hold us accountable to our abilities to address preventable diseases because they can be prevented, a stewardship that will ensure that there is discipline,” Dr Brew Hammond demanded.

The ruling NDC have been criticized for their ineffectiveness in creating jobs, a situation that the PPP would want to exploit in their campaign as we head closer to the November, polls.
