Ghana’s ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) will today, Saturday, August 22, 2020 outdoor its manifesto ahead of the general elections in December.
The event is scheduled to take place at the University of Cape Coast, but will be held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The general secretary of the party, John Boadu, in a statement said Zoom platforms have also been created for all other party members across the nation to virtually join the launch.
“For persons other than members of the party’s National Council who wish to participate in the event to join the feed, such persons are encouraged to converge at the various regional offices of the party where the proceedings will be projected on large screens,” the statement added.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and other experts drafted the 2020 manifesto. The team hopes that the policies outlined in the manifesto will make Ghanaians retain the Akufo-Addo administration in office for another four years.
Ahead of the manifesto launch, Dr. Bawumia has been touting the achievements of the NPP administration, especially in the infrastructure sector.
He said the infrastructure record of the Akufo-Addo administration is “second to none, with verifiable data to back up my claim”, when compared to any government in its first term of office under the Fourth Republic.
“The investment in infrastructure by the NPP government over the last three years has been massive. I dare say our investment in infrastructure, our infrastructure record, is second to none for any government in its first term under the Fourth Republic,” Dr Bawumia stated on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 during a virtual Government Townhall Meeting and Results Fair showcasing the NPP’s infrastructure record, held in Accra.
