NPP will launch long awaited manifesto on October 8 in Tamale



The long awaited manifesto of the largest opposition party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will be launched on October 8, 2016 at the Tamale sports stadium, the northern regional chairman of the party, Mr Bugre Naabu has announced.

It is expected to spell out policies and programs that the NPP should it win this year’s election will use to help address Ghana’s developmental problems.

The NPP has been criticized by the governing National Democratic Congress (NPP) for not presenting its manifesto to the people of Ghana as an alternative political party yearning for change of government.

But the party maintained, it has resisted pressure to rush its manifesto into the public domain, and accused the NDC of waiting to steal NPP ideas, an accusation the ruling party vehemently dismissed.

Mr Naabu said the launch of of the party’s manifesto shows the confidence the national leadership repose in the rank and file of the party and urged all party members to get him or her self involved in the campaign to ensure victory for Nana Dankwa Akuffo Addo.

Mr Naabu said the party is poised to win not less than 25 parliamentary seats and 70% in the presidential election.

The outspoken NPP chairman also dispelled the notion that the party is in disarray or divided. The regional executives Mr Naabu noted are more than united and poised to win the elections and host a big national event to celebrate their victory contrary to the perceived division and acrimony in the party.

The NPP flagbearer, Bugre said, will win all the ten regions come the December 7 polls. He assured party members that, a NPP government will not neglect Ghanaians and encouraged them to work hard.

Mr Naabu told party members and some invited  assembly members from Sagnarigu district and the Tamale metropolis at Ed-Ul Adha reception at his private residence in Tamale that Ghana’s economy is worsening on a daily basis and that the electorate will be making a big mistake in retaining the NDC in power, pointing out that how to eat in Ghana now is a problem.

The Ed-Ul adha get-together was initiated by the late Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama as an occasion for merry-making for everyone irrespective of their party affiliation.

The event he noted was also to seek Allah’s blessings to see Ghana under a new regime which he said will end the suffering of Ghanaians as well as to pray for good health and strength for Nana Addo and Dr Alhaji Maahamudu Bawumia.

He made a passionate appeal to assembly members who attended the event to help NPP to win this year’s elections so that the numerous developmental problems confronting their electoral areas can be solved.

Campaign strategy

Mr Naabu in outlining the party’s campaign strategy charged members to campaign door to door, or one on one, and to reach out to Ghanaians on the need for a change of government.

“Go to the people, talk to them, let them see the need for a change,” he pleaded.
