The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has ridiculed the National Democratic Congress (NDC) saying Ghanaians are not interested in their hollow slogans for 2020.
Addressing the media, Director of Communications for the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, said the NDC has nothing new to offer Ghanaians, except comic slogans.
“All those lofty and utopian promises they made is why this government has become a problem for the people to solve. We are not interested in those comedy slogans of politics. What we are interested in is fixing the problems of the people to develop this country. This will create more opportunities and provide jobs for all. So, it is not about those slogans. What we are focusing on is to identify the true and real concerns of the people to provide solid, workable, feasible policy alternatives that will deal with the challenges of the people. This is what will bring growth, development and economic freedom of the people, not the taglines”, he said.
Meanwhile, the NDC says its manifesto for the 2020 elections will be centered on identifying problems that affect the Ghanaian people and find pragmatic ways of fixing them.
According to the party, its policy document will also be devoid of what is termed as ‘comic slogans’.
Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Boamah Otukonor, indicated that their 2020 manifesto will be people-driven and geared towards solving problems and bringing about development.
