Former President John Mahama has taunted government for “implementing” the NDC’s manifesto even though the party is in opposition.
Speaking at a Townhall Meeting in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, the NDC flagbearer said the party is bothered by the move by government because the manifesto was drafted for the country.
“We are not yet in power but the NPP has started working with our manifesto,but we don’t mind, we did the manifesto for the country. However, we are confident that we will come back to power come December 7,” he said.
Also speaking at the event, General Secretary of the party Johnson Asiedu Nketia accused the government of implementing the opposition party’s programs and policies.
“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.
