President John Mahama has jabbed the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) for saying that it is deliberately delaying the release of its 2016 election manifesto because it does not want the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) to copy it.
Speaking at an event to mark the NDC’s 24th anniversary in Accra, President Mahama said his party would go ahead and launch its manifesto.

He said the party was not worried that opposition political parties would copy its ideas.
“We as a party will not say that we will not launch our manifesto because we are afraid someone will copy it. Our ideas are original and we will launch our manifesto and if anybody wants they can copy us.”
The president said the NDC manifesto would also engage Ghanaians and provide them with a clear understanding of what the party planned to do for them.
