NPP’s pressers hollow, bereft of ideas – Asiedu Nketia

MosquitoThe New Patriotic Party (NPP) is not living up to its billing as a strong opposition party as press conferences organised by the party do not achieve any purpose, General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia has said.

For him, the party is inefficient as it has failed to live up to its billing.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP), after studying the highlights of the governing party’s manifesto, accused the president of the republic of being empty on ideas to develop Ghana.

The NPP further said President Mahama and the NDC would not deliver on their manifesto promises if Ghanaians made the mistake of re-electing the NDC for 12 straight years this December.

Addressing a press conference in Accra on Wednesday, 14 September, the Communications Director of the party, Nana Akomea, said the NDC “steals our policies and cannot implement them”.

But Mr Nketia has refuted such claims, describing the press conference as “hollow”.

Even though he admitted that the party had great thinkers, the “quality of their press conferences these days leaves much to be desired. The press conference addressed by Nana Akomea supported by John Boadu in my view is a very hollow and bereft of ideas”.

He made these claims during an interview with Prince Minkah on Class FM’s Executive Breakfast Show on Friday, September 16, 2016.

He believed the two executives “did not do any good service to their party”. For him, “NPP can do better than what they are currently doing”.

On the issue of manifesto idea theft, Mr Nketia wondered how “a property-owning democrat will want to own up [to claim] a social democratic policy as their own”.

He said the “noise about stealing ideas demonstrates their lack of knowledge about the basis for the formation of political parties and how manifestos must be formed on the core basis of a party”.
