The largest of opposition party, New Democratic Congress revealed their manifesto as part of the preparation in 2020 election. They entitled it as “The People’s Manifesto”
Their candidate,John Dramani Mahama postulated that “Government has clearly failed to contain the virus and has given up providing timely statistics and data on the status of COVID-19 in our nation.
Despite the huge resources made available to Ghana by the IMF, World Bank and withdrawals from our stabilization fund, Government has failed in its COVID-19 alleviation and containment programme.
Public education has been poor, food distribution during the lockdown was chaotic and disorderly. Protective gear remains in short supply, putting frontline health workers at risk.
It is critical that we rescue Ghana from the abyss into which it is sinking. We must prepare Ghana to cope with the current global changes. We must open new horizons and new hopes, to instill a new sense of purpose in our people, catching up on what we have missed while taking steps to enhance our growth.
We must place Ghana in sync with the new developments taking place around the world in order to prepare our economy to become an advanced one.
To achieve this, we must build a knowledge-based economy and move faster into the new world of smart manufacturing and digital services. This will generate not only growth, but prosperity for all Ghanaians. We will create not only jobs, but sustainable and decent jobs, so that people can live dignified lives.
We must put Ghanaian businesses at the center of our economic growth. It is only when Ghanaian businesses thrive that our economy can grow and create jobs and prosperity”
