The content of the 2020 campaign manifesto of the National Democratic Congress (NDC)which was launched on Monday is full of populist approach which doesn’t help in nation building, Akwasi Addai Odike has indicated.
After giving a hearing to the reading of the litany of promises by the flagbearer John Dramami Mahama, he said “I was worried so much yesterday after watching the event”.
He defended his emotions and impression by explaining that the NDC’s promise of legalising the operation of Okada shouldn’t have been factored in their manifesto.
“Legalisation of “Okada” shouldn’t be a government or a party’s policy. Issues revolving around that can only be told when having a meeting with operators or a small group of people. Factoring it in a manifesto is immaterial”, he stated.
The outspoken Founder, National Chairman and leader for United Progressive Party (UPP) Mr Odike told www.leakynews.net that after comparing and contrasting the manifesto of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and NDC, he realised that the duo were full of concerts and insinuations.
He underlined that both parties were attacking each other with their contents “just like a verbal banter”.
Dwelling on NDC’s he fingered that “they should have pick thematic areas for the development of the country like Agriculture and spell out what they can do within that sector”.
“All the two parties left behind the fundamentals for development”, he added.
