Former Director of Communications for the Ruling National People Party Mr. Yaw Adomako Baafi has described the 2020 manifesto of the NDC as untruth, repetition of failed promises, and a shadow of the NPP’s ideas.
According to the NPP Communication team member, the manifesto put out by the NDC is a masterpiece of frustrations as a result of losing the 2016 elections.
Defining his assertion in an interview with GhanaWeb, September 8, 2020, Mr. Baafi said, “It’s a combination of lies, repetition of failed but broken promises and then again robbing of NPPs ideas. These were the very things that the NDC presented and brought to us.”
He explained that the NDC in their manifesto launched at the University of Professional Studies on Monday, gave themselves up by being contradictory in their claims and propositions.
“The NDC Chairman who was formally their Director of Elections confirmed that if NDC had been elected again they would’ve fixed dumsor. But I was surprised when yesterday out of effrontery and disrespect to the people of Ghana he came to say they fixed the dumsor before their exit….. so if he comes and tells us that they fixed dumsor, you can’t fathom it.”
The NPP communicator mentioned that he has so far outlined over 20 aspects of the NDC’s manifesto which are either lies or repetition of their 2012 manifesto.
He said that having failed to implement such policies between 2012 and 2016 when they were in power, the promises repeated by the NDC in their 2020 manifesto can be best be described as unachievable policies meant to deceive the people of Ghana.
