NDC Manifesto NDC has delivered 7 out of 500 promises - Franklin Cudjoe

Speaking on Citi Fm's news analysis show on Saturday, Cudjoe said: “We have been combing through the manifesto as you will recall. We found out 540 promises with only 7 of them having some form of a metric.”

President of policy think tank IMANI Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe, has accused the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) of delivering seven out of "over 500 promises" they made in their 2012 manifesto.

Speaking on Citi Fm's news analysis show on Saturday, Cudjoe said: “We’ve been combing through the manifesto, we found out over 500 promises with only seven of the promises that are having some form of a metric."

"Thankfully about four of them were in the arena of the economy and the first one was single digit inflation throughout every year, an 8% annual GDP,” he added.


He highlighted four of such promises that has not been materialised.

“Single-digit inflation obviously has not materialised; an 8% GDP growth annual has not also materialised. There was a budget deficit figure also in the realm of a single-digit, which obviously has not also materialised.”

He continued: “They promised 5,000 megawatts of power, but as of July 2015, it was approximately one hundred and eighty-something, which accounts for 0.16%”.

In addition, Cudjoe skewered the NDC for inflating the cost of the renovation of the Tamale and the Kumasi Airport runways.

“I do not think the Kumasi runway should cost about twenty-something million when in actual fact, it should cost about three [million dollars]. The Tamale Airport should not cost $100million but about $25 million," he said.
