“There is no alternative to the NPP government that has discharged its work so well…Akufo-Addo and Bawumia over the last three years have done wonders,” the former president said.
He added “see how they have managed the covid situation, see how planting for food and jobs is performing…they need another four years to continue the development of the country.”
The NPP launching its manifesto for the 2020 polls today August 22, 2020 at the University of Cape-Coast.
President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia are expected to speak at the launch.
The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NDC) John Boadu speaking at the launch said the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has delayed in launching their manifesto because they are waiting to copy ideas from the NPP.
He said even though the NDC gave hints two months ago that their manifesto is ready and submitted to the party executives, they have been unable to launch because they have no fresh ideas.
“They announced two months ago that their manifesto is ready but they have not been able to launch, Obviously they are waiting for us to launch our manifesto so they can copy as usual, since they have no original ideas. Well, we have launched so they are free to copy,” Mr Boadu said in his address at the party’s manifesto launch at currently ongoing at Cape Coast in the Central region.
