Shift in NDC manifesto launch date: Mahama lacks message – NPP

The National Communications Director for New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has said that the postponement of the launch of the manifesto of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) shows that the largest opposition party has no message for Ghanaians ahead of this year’s elections.

The NDC shifted the date of the launch from Monday, August 31 to Monday, September 7.

But at a press conference in Accra on Monday, August 31, Mr Buaben Asamoa said the NDC cannot even be trusted to launch its manifesto as scheduled.

“Months before Covid-19 hit the world, John Mahama’s NDC set up a manifesto committee on a perilous journey to go and find out what Ghanaians want.

“After 16 years of NDC in the 28-year-old Fourth Republic which he [Mahama] has ruled in 6 years of those years and the final decision maker in Ghana, he is still struggling to find out what Ghanaian governance priorities are.

“On July 1st 2020, the whole world was told that candidate Mahama has received the people’s manifesto and he said he was going to launch in August but when the NPP announced August 22 to launch its manifesto, the whole world was told theirs will follow on the August 29 and then came the bomb.

“Our manifesto hit them so hard making them postpone to 31st August and as we speak we are not sure it will come on as announced again on the 7th September,” he said.
