The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described the 2016 manifesto of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) as a document of ‘empty English’.

Speaking to Pulse.com.gh a Deputy General Secretary of the NDC Koku Anyidoho said they were expecting the NPP to give details as to how they were going to execute their mentioned projects in their manifesto.

“How come they didn’t tell us how they intend to fund their one district one factory project? How come they didn’t tell us how they intend to fund their ‘one village one dam’ project? How come they didn’t tell us how they intend to go about distributing one million dollars to each constituency?” he quizzed.

Comparing the NDC’s manifesto launch to that of the NPP, Anyidoho said, “When President Mahama delivered and put out the manifesto he spoke to specifics, gave details of what has already been done, what is being done and what will be done. So we were expecting that Akuffo-Addo and Bawumia put together to walk us through specifics somehow they run away from specifics and were just speaking English with no details.”

He said this makes it easier for the Ghanaian electorate to decide which political party to vote for.

“So if less than two months to the election the main opposition party comes out and just speaks empty English with no specifics I’m sure the verdict is out as to which political party has a strong agenda for this country.”

Anyidoho also said the NPP will destroy the local pharmaceutical industry with their plan to waive taxes on imported drugs.

“They say the will waive  taxes on imported medicines. So what they intend to do is to open the gate for all kinds of cheap medicines to be imported into the country when President Mahama is busy supporting the local manufacturing industries to expand and create jobs. Akuffo Addo and his people will close the door on local industries in the pharmaceutical sector and just open the door for importation where their cronies and family members will be doing the importation.”

He said they (NDC) is unperturbed by the manifesto launch and outline of the NPP because they believe the Ghanaian electorate will compare both manifestos and make a decision to give President Mahama a fourth term.

“The verdict is out we believe that at the end of the day Ghanaians will decide to renew the mandate of President Mahama.”

The NPP launched their 2016 manifesto on Sunday, October 9, 2016, ahead of the December polls. The NPP delayed the launch of its manifesto because they argued the NDC would steal ideas from their manifesto.
