General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has said that The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) manifesto will open doors to Ghana’s development.
He made this statement during the launch of the NDC’s manifesto which was held at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) in Accra on Monday, 7th September 2020.
“Because this manifesto is inspired by the people and so named the “People’s Manifesto”, Mr. Asiedu Nketia said he was “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.”
He said the essence of the manifesto was inspired by the average Ghanaian and not party leaders.
“We are presenting to you a manifesto that was not developed by leaders of a party who have arrogated themselves the power of thinking for other people. We are presenting to you the product of the people’s thinking,” Mr. Asiedu Nketia said.
He further described this approach as thinking outside the box adding that the thoughts of the people were compiled, “polished and developed into implementable programs.”
He further assured that the realization of this manifesto will be the vision of the people.
We asked the people how they would want to see Ghana in the next four years; what country they envision to live in the next four years and how to build that country and it is out of that conversation that the People’s Manifesto was developed.”
