NPP working with our 'People's Manifesto' – Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama says the implementation of his party’s 2020 manifesto by the governing NPP is an indication that the document was put together with the people in mind.

Citing the legalisation of ‘Okada’ as one of the promises the Akufo-Addo government claims to be working on, the former President said his party has no problem with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government rolling out some of its manifesto promises.

“We are not yet in power but the NPP has started working with our manifesto…but we don’t mind, we did the manifesto for the country,” Mr. Mahama said.

Speaking at the party’s Town Hall Meeting in the Ashanti region, the flagbearer urged Ghanaians to vote massively for his party, so it can better implement its promises which will address all the needs of the people.

“We are confident that we will come back to power come December 7,” Mr Mahama added.

Touching on the numerous sod-cutting ceremonies for the commencement of various projects across the country by the President, John Mahama described the development as a form of scam.

This according to him is because funding for these projects is non-existent.

“If they come to your town to cut sod for a project ask them two questions, let them tell you if the project was captured under the 2020 budget or whether parliament has approved a loan for the project.

“If they’re unable to answer then it means the sod cutting is a scam, it’s because of the elections. It is ‘sakawa’ or 419,” Mr Mahama said.
