A former Chief of Staff, Prosper Douglas Bani, has noted that the manifesto document of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in this year’s elections will make it difficult for any person to engage in corruption.
He explained during the launch of the manifesto in Accra on Monday, September 7 that the manifesto contains several measures that prevent government appointees from engaging in graft.
“All the economic issues, all the economic problems and all the economic proposals are listed here in the manifesto.
“If you intend to engage in any corrupt activity under this manifesto please look elsewhere. There isn’t any space for you.”
For his part, the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said the manifesto will to solve the underdevelopment problem of Ghana.
He said the manifesto was drafted to meet the needs and aspirations of Ghanaians in general hence his conviction that it will live up to expectation.
Speaking at the event held at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), he said: “For the first time in the history of any political party in this country, we are presenting to you a manifesto that was not developed by leaders of the party who have arrogated to themselves the power of thinking for other people.
“We are presenting to you a product of the people’s own thinking which we have put together polished and developed into implementable programmes.
“I am very confident that the age-long problem of underdevelopment for this country is going to be solved once and for all by the People’s Manifesto.
“We asked the people how they would want to see Ghana in the next four years, what country they envisaged to live in in the next four years and how to build that country.”
