The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia has accused the Akufo-Addo government of implementing the 2020 manifesto promises of the NDC.
According to him, the government is hurriedly adopting key promises the NDC made for implementation before the December polls.
“They have always claimed NDC members are dumb, they always say that. Now the dumb people have put together their small manifesto, but they the learned ones are now implementing our manifesto, why is that?
“But it won’t amount to anything. We gave them four years, you have just a little over three months to finish. What you couldn’t achieve in three years you can’t finish in three months,” he stated at the party’s Townhall Meeting at Kumasi in the Ashanti region.
The claim is coming on the back of several accusations by the opposition party against government of implementing their policies which were outdoored last week in their manifesto for the 2020 elections.
They cite government’s stands on Okada legalisation as proof of their claim.
Meanwhile, the Transport Ministry has announced that stakeholder discussions on the legalisation of Okada in the country will resume in October.
It comes on the back of the raging debate on the legalisation of the motorcycle transport business sparked by opposition leader John Mahama.
The ministry in a statement said the discussion is entering its second phase after it was halted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
