Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has said the New Patriotic Party is ready to take over power and steer government to the heights of development as the party once did under his tenure.

Speaking at the launch of the NPP Manifesto at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra, Mr Kufuor said his government under the New Patriotic Party was able to achieve middle-income status for the country “because it is in our party's DNA.”
