2 min read

The 2020 manifesto of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is ready, 3news.com can confirm.

It was presented to the party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, by the manifesto committee on Thursday, July 30.

The manifesto, dubbed the People’s Manifesto, is scheduled to be launched in August.

But the former president last Monday, during a ceremony to outdoor his running mate, touched on some of the policies contained in the manifesto.

“I will leave the rest for my Policy Dialogue Sessions, and the launch of our manifesto in August, during which we will discuss and debate the NDC’s solutions and plans for our country,” Mr Mahama told the gathering at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).

“Our plans include an aggressive job and entrepreneurial programme in the public and private sector; that will deliver a minimum 250,000 jobs every year. A total of one million jobs across the country by the end of my term in office in 2024.

“We will put Ghanaians to work to earn a decent living.”

Before the drafting of the manifesto, the flagbearer met some key stakeholders, from whom he took some suggestions.

“We don’t think that it is good to make [the manifesto] top-to-bottom,” he had told the Ghana Medical Associaton (GMA) in October when he met its leadership.

“It is bottom-up so that we incorporate what the genuine opinions of people who are working in those particular sectors have to influence government policy so that when we are implementing the policy, you don’t only own it but you know that you have been part of drawing the policy.”
