President John Mahama has denied claims by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) manifesto highlights are stolen ideas from the campaign promises of Nana Akufo-Addo.

The Director of Communication of the NPP, Nana Akomea at a press conference Wednesday said the President “steals ideas from his political opponents only to be found wanting when it comes to implementing them.”

He said the NDC has “no deep attachment to the principles necessary to drive the promises they give. To them, politics is all about ways and means. Nothing to do with actually making lives better.”

But addressing chiefs and members of the Ga Traditional Council on Thursday, the president said the claims by the NPP are baseless.

“I was directly involved in writing the manifesto for the NDC and so I know everything that is in that manifesto because I participated. People did not just write it and bring it to me; I participated in writing that manifesto.

“So, when somebody says we have plagiarised their manifesto, I don’t think he understands plagiarism. Plagiarism is if you steal from a known document and put in another document. But there is no document known as NPP manifesto that we know about so how can we have plagiarised from a document that does not exist? If that document exists, produce it today,” he said.

“We know where we’ve come from; we know where we are going. And so we have the ideas to make this country better and we will continue to do the work to move this country to a new pedestal and I’m certain we will win this election and that by 2021 when I leave office, we would have made Ghana one of the model countries in West Africa and Ghana will be the envy of our sub-region” the President added.
