The Chief of Staff Julius Debrah has challenged the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to come out with their manifesto and stop the excuses.
Addressing the Nadowli Traditional Council in the Upper West region, Mr. Debrah said “some party’s don’t have manifestos yet they go around blaming the NDC of stealing their manifesto. At a point they said their manifesto was missing, the latest news is that they are preparing their manifesto, well it’s all good but the NDC manifesto is out.”
Mr. Debrah is in the Upper West region to represent President John Dramani Mahama who is in New York to attend the 71st edition of the United Nations General Assembly.
He reminded the Chiefs at the Nadowli Traditional Council of the relevance of party manifestos, saying “manifesto is basically a document that expresses the real intent of a political party seeking the mandate of the people.”
The ruling NDC last week launched its manifesto, describing it as a blue print to accelerate the country’s socio economic development.
He said: “If I come to you saying give me your mandate and you don’t have anything on paper to show to me, it means that you aren’t serious with the people’s mandate.”
The chief of staff is accompanied by the NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the Majority leader in Parliament and MP for Nadowli- Kaleo Alban Sumana Babgin, the Upper West regional minister Hon. Aminu Suleman. Mr. Debrah is on a six-day campaign tour of the region.
