The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says its manifesto for the 2020 elections will be centered on identifying problems that affect the Ghanaian people and find pragmatic ways of fixing them.
According to the party, its policy document will also be devoid of what it termed as ‘comic slogans’.
The Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Boamah Otukonor has indicated that, their 2020 manifesto will be people-driven and geared towards solving problems and bringing about development.
Last week, the NDC announced that it is soliciting inputs from the general public, civil society organizations, trade unions and other identifiable groups to draw up the manifesto.
Last month, the party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama also inaugurated a 21-member manifesto committee to draw up “a people’s manifesto”.
But the governing New Patriotic Party, NPP, says the decision by the NDC to take ideas from Ghanaians for their 2020 manifesto indicates that the party lacks what it takes to run the country.
Addressing a news conference, the Director of Communications for the NPP, Yaw Boabeng Asamoah, said the NDC has nothing new to offer Ghanaians.
