Mahama to give highlights of NDC manifesto today
President John Dramani Mahama will today [Tuesday], present to a cross-section of Ghanaians, the highlights of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Manifesto for 2016.
The event, arranged as a prelude to the main launch of the Manifesto on Saturday September 17, at Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region, will also be attended by representatives of International Organizations, the Diplomatic Corps, Business Associations and Youth Groups.
Today’s event will be held at 7:00pm at the State Banquet Hall, State House, Accra.
A statement signed by Joyce Bawah Mogtari, spokesperson for the NDC’s 2016 campaign team said the presentation of the highlights “is intended to give the public an insight into the focus areas of the 2016 NDC Manifesto.”
“With the ‘Green Book’ effectively outlining the key policies we have implemented and the projects arising out of these policies, President Mahama will use the occasion to explain his vision for the next four years, and provide details of the key interventions he will be implementing in his second term,” the statement added.
“We’ll first release highlights of NDC manifesto The NDC Campaign Coordinator, Kofi Adams last week told the Citi Breakfast Show team that the party will first release the manifesto highlights before publishing the full document.”
“The NDC decided that for highlights of the manifesto we could do it in a week day, considering the fact that all these activities are being occupied with one major event or the other. Let His Excellency the President and Vice President lead the process in doing the highlights of our manifesto which has long been ready,” he added.
