NDC set to launch manifesto in Accra Monday
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has set Monday, August 31, 2020, as the date to launch its manifesto.
According to him, the launch of the manifesto dubbed “The People’s manifesto” will be held in Accra.
The party’s National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, disclosed this at a press conference in Accra.
“The flagbearer of the NDC has indicated that our manifesto will be launched this month. I am 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.”
The NDC’s announcement comes after the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) launched its manifesto in Cape Coast over the weekend.
General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, who spoke at the manifesto launch accused the NDC of delaying the launch of their manifesto to copy ideas from his party.
John Boadu said even though the NDC gave hints two months ago that their manifesto was ready and submitted to the party executives, they had been unable to launch because they lacked fresh ideas.
“They announced two months ago that their manifesto is ready, but they have not been able to launch. Obviously, they are waiting for us to launch our manifesto so they can copy as usual, since they have no original ideas.
“Well, we have launched, so they are free to copy,” Mr. Boadu said in his address at the party’s manifesto launch at currently ongoing at Cape Coast in the Central region,” he said.
