The Deputy National Communications Director for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Asante Yeboah has dubbed the 2020 manifesto of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as ‘apor’ and ‘okada’ manifesto.
To him, there is nothing new about the 2020 manifesto of the NDC. It is just a repetition of the 2012 and 2016 manifestos.
“They copied aspects of the NPP manifesto with some instances where they changed the wording. In other instances they copied word for word so their manifesto is just an ‘apor’.
“You can’t compare an ‘okada’ manifesto to our NPP manifesto which talks about free SHS, planting for food and jobs. So in summary I call the NDC manifesto an okada and ‘apor’ manifesto,” he claimed.
According to him, before anyone develope the idea of vying for the presidential seat, the least the person must know is the challenges of the citizenry.
“We were told that they the NDC went around the country to seek for opinions from Ghanaians, but if you don’t know the problems facing Ghanaians then you don’t even need to conceive the idea to become President,” he told Shaq B on Darling FM in Cape Coast.
