The General Secretary of the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said the party’s 2020 manifesto, christened ‘The People’s Manifesto’ is the result of out-of-the-box thinking which holds the solutions to Ghana’s problems.
Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia said on Monday, 7 September 2020 during the launch of the NDC’s manifesto at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) that the party thought it wise to seek solutions from the ordinary people of Ghana rather than pretending its experts and technocrats had all the answers.
He said the NDC used the same strategy used by former President Jerry John Rawlings in forming a Consultative Assembly of ordinary Ghanaians to draft the country’s 1992 Constitution.
Even before the manifesto launch, former President John Mahama had promised to create one million jobs for the youth, legalise okada business, provide free primary health care, fight corruption among other promises
