The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is scheduled to launch its manifesto this weekend after months of wait. The manifesto is expected to proffer solutions to the ailing sectors of the economy as claimed by the NPP.
Here are six things that party supporters and political pundits should expect on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra:
1. Assembly of Party Bigwigs
The rank and file of the opposition party are anticipated to throng to the event. Former President John Agyekum Kufuor will preside over the launch. The NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate Dr Bawumia will be present. Also in attendance will be all National Executive Committee and National Council members, NPP Members of Parliament and 25 representatives of each region.
2. Colourful Display
The Trade Fair Centre will offer a sight to behold as party members flaunt their attractive colours of red, white and blue. The predominant white will provide a perfect background for the red and blue.
3. Outline of Policies
Having given hints during the various campaign tours, the party officials are expected to add flesh to their major policies. Notable policies including “one village, one dam”, “one district, one factory” and “one constituency, one million dollars” will be discussed in detail.
There will likely be more endorsements of the party by some celebrities and popular figures in Ghana. Already the likes of A-Plus, Agya Koo, Praye, Ruff n Smooth and several others have declared their support for the NPP ahead of the 2016 elections.
5. Morale-boosting Speeches
As the polls draw nigh, the leadership of NPP will deliver well-crafted messages to ginger party faithful across the nation. Former President Kufuor, Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr Bawumia are slated to give some remarkable speeches.
6. Commendable Organisation
The NPP has a history of staging almost perfect ceremonies. The 2012 edition was well-organised so Sunday’s launch will be no different. The party is expected to benefit from the experience of Ms Esther Ofori who is a former chief executive officer of the Trade Fair Company Limited as well as the past NPP national treasurer.
The 2016 NPP manifesto will give Ghanaians an indication of what to expect from the party should it win the elections in December.
