Asiedu Nketsiah Makes An Extraordinary Statement About NDC's Manifesto, And NPP Must Be Concerned

General Secretary for National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketsiah moved the audience at the launch of the party's manifesto with a spectacular presentation. His comment centred on how innovative the party was in developing the manifesto which has been titled the 'People's Manifesto'.

According to Mr. Asiedu Nketsiah the party's leadership just as the founder, Jerry John Rawlings beleived in the representation and inclusion of the ordinary Ghanaian in drafting of the 1992 constitution, adapted a more inclusive voice to the development of the 2020 manifesto, so as to reflect on the dreams and aspirations of the people. Johnson Asiedu Nketsiah argued that such innovations sets them apart from their political opponent [New Patriotic Party], as they are yet to admit the interest of the people is paramount.

He recounted that the Dr. Busia tradition and the Ghana Bar Association expressed their disapproval of Rawlings' approach and yet that constitution has become the most powerful document ever in our democracy.

He said that they opposed the idea claiming "...that they could not sit side by side with butchers to draft the constitution"

"But that constitution has survived twenty-eight years" Mr. Asiedu Nketsiah added.

He justified that same approach is what drives the spirit of the manifesto.

"We thinking outside the box" he said.

To him, the party's ideology is to have an honest representation of every Ghanaian its transformative agenda for the country's development, hence "we are presenting to you a product of the people's own thinking"
