The Member of Parliament for North Tongu in the Volta Region, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says the opposition National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) soon to be outdoored 2020 manifesto will be condescending than the released by the governing New Patriotic Party.
In a Facebook post,he said Ghanaians will appreciate the wisdom in the NDC manifesto when it is launched on Monday, August 31, 2020.He added that the NDC’s manifesto will be driven by the real needs and aspirations of Ghanaians.
“One can therefore immediately see the wisdom of the NDC leadership when they chose to embark on a people’s manifesto which our opponents ridiculed. Clearly, you cannot get it wrong when you go to the people and engage them directly on what constitutes their needs, hopes and aspirations. Certainly, the NDC is better positioned to present a far superior manifesto on Monday. A manifesto from the people and for the people as it ought to be.”
He further stated that President Akufo-Addo is ‘running away’ from a debate with former President Mahama because the NPP government has failed to implement most of its 2016 manifesto promises.
“It can now be understood why President Akufo-Addo is running away from a debate with former President John Mahama despite the latter’s passionate appeals. When your record is defined by ghost projects and blatant deception which has resulted in a gaping trust deficit, you will obviously not present yourself to the Bukom Boxing Arena, not because that is another JM legacy but more because you need to desperately avoid a TKO from Sumaila Ndewura Jakpa’s descendant.” he said.
