Produce manifesto and stop needless accusations – Chief of Staff to NPP

julius-debrahThe Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah has challenged the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to release its manifesto and stop accusing the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) of plagiarism.

The NPP recently accused the governing NDC for allegedly ‘stealing’ its ideas barely 24 hours after President John Mahama presented the highlights of the NDC 2016 manifesto.

But addressing the Nadowli Traditional Council in the Upper West Region, the Chief of staff said “some parties don’t have manifestos yet they go around blaming the NDC of stealing their manifesto.

At a point they said their manifesto was missing, the latest news is that they are preparing their manifesto, well it’s all good but the NDC manifesto is out.” A number of political parties including the NPP are yet to launch their manifestos for the December 7 polls.

The NPP has announced it will be launching its 2016 manifesto next month on October 8 in Tamale in the Northern Region.

Julius Debrah is in the Upper West Region to campaign for President Mahama who is in New York, USA, to attend the 71st edition of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) ahead of Ghana’s election on December 7, 2016.

He used the opportunity to explain portions of the NDC manifesto, especially on the ‘Green Revolution’ a policy that will transform the agricultural sector.

The governing NDC launched its manifesto at the Sunyani Coronation Park in the Brong Ahafo Region on September 17, 2016, describing it as a blue print that will accelerate the country’s socio economic development.

The Chief of Staff slammed other political parties for not producing their manifestos a few weeks to the crucial elections. “If I come to you saying give me your mandate and you don’t have anything on paper to show to the people, it means that you aren’t serious with the people’s mandate,” Mr. Debrah stated.

The chief of staff was accompanied by the NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketiah; the Majority leader in Parliament and MP for Nadowli- Kaleo, Alban Babgin; the Upper West Regional Minister, Alhaji Amidu Sulemani and the regional executives of the party.
