The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has invited President Mahama to its manifesto launch on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at the International Trade Fair Centre, Accra.
Director of Elections of the NPP, Martin Agyei Mensah Korsah who extended the invitation to the President said it will be in the interest of the NDC and President Mahama to witness their manifesto launch because they will place emphasis on job creation.
“The NDC manifesto launch we know is just a talk without any implementation and so I want to throw a challenge to the President to come to our launch and witness what will happen so that they can learn because they are just deceiving us.
“Mahama and his men should come to the Trade Fair on Sunday and listen to our manifesto launch and learn from us because we have Ghanaians at heart” he stated.
The NPP now launch its manifesto at the Trade Fair Center in Accra on October 9.
The initial venue was the Tamale Sports Stadium, where the NPP held its national delegates congress, and the Party had said the choice of Tamale was to maximize the party’s electoral fortunes in the Northern Region on December 7.
It also said the NPP Presidential nominee, Nana Akufo-Addo’s successful campaign tour of the Northern Region necessitated the choice of Tamale.
However at the last minute, a World Cup qualifying match was fixed at the same venue on the same day by the Sports Ministry, necessitating a change in date and venue for the launch.
The NPP have indicated that the manifesto will place emphasis on job creation and creating an enabling business environment for economic growth.
So far, only the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) have released their manifestos ahead of the polls in December.
Mr. Agyei Mensah Korsah stressed that the launch of the manifesto contains the solutions Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the party propose to help fix the myriad of problems facing the country.
He maintained that it is not the business of President John Dramani Mahama to remind Ghanaians of his achievements if there is any, as they would be visible for the people to see and decide; thus, it is only the panic of losing the 2016 election which will make the President tour the entire country to remind Ghanaians of his achievements.
