Former President John Mahama has taken a swipe at the government for “implementing” the NDC’s manifesto even though the party is in opposition. He said this during a town hall meeting in Kumasi.
According to the NDC flagbearer, the party is bothered by the move because the manifesto was drafted for the people of Ghana.
“We are not yet in power but the NPP has started working with our manifesto….but we don’t mind, we did the manifesto for the country. However, we are confident that we will come back to power come December 7,” he said.
Speaking at the same event, the General Secretary of the party Johnson Asiedu Nketia accused the government of implementing the opposition party’s programs and policies.
“They have always claimed NDC members are dumb, they always say that. Now the dumb people have put together their small manifesto, but they the learned ones are now implementing our manifesto, why is that? But it won’t amount to anything. We gave them four years, you have just a little over three months to finish. What you couldn’t achieve in three years you can’t finish in three months,” he stated at the party’s Townhall Meeting at Kumasi in the Ashanti region.
The claim is coming on the back of several accusations by the opposition party against the government of implementing their policies which were outdoors last week in their manifesto for the 2020 elections.
They cite the government’s stands on Okada legalization as proof of their claim.
