The General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Johnson Aseidu Nketiah has announced that the party will officially launch its 2016 election manifesto in Sunyani, in two weeks’ time.
He said the launch of the party’s manifesto in Sunyani falls in line with the party’s long-standing tradition since 1992.
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah disclosed this at the launch of the party’s campaign in Cape coast on Sunday.
Addressing party loyalists, Mr. Asiedu Nketiah said the NDC scored a very important victory when they decided to expand their decision-making structures which allowed every card-bearing member of the NDC to participate in the choice of our parliamentary and presidential candidates.
He said the NDC is not scared about its opponents stealing ideas from its manifesto.
“…We are not scared if they [opposition parties] want to take our whole manifesto” Mr. Aseidu Nketiah stressed
The NDC is going into the polls with President John Mahama as its flag bearer. The party is aiming to win a second term in office with Mr Mahama as leader. Mr Mahama’s main opponent in the race is Nana Akufo-Addo, flag bearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party.
