The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) is waging a fresh manifesto-war on the presidential candidate of the All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga. The NPP is accusing Hassan Ayariga of stealing portions of their yet-to-be-published manifesto.
Describing Hassan Ayariga as Melania Trump (wife of US Republican candidate, Donald Trump, who plagiarized the speech of Michel Obama)
According to the NPP, "one such policy statement, which Hassan Ayariga, copied from was the speech delivered by Nana Akufo-Addo at the 56th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Ghana Employers’ Association (GEA), at the International Conference Centre, Accra, on Thursday, September 8, 2016”.
The accusation by the NPP follows that of a prolonged rancor between the opposition and main political parties of the NPP and NDC respectively over Mahama allegedly copying parts of the NPP manifesto - allegations President Mahama has rubbished arguing that he personally wrote part of the manifesto by himself.
