The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) says the 2020 election is about the performance of the two leading candidates and not their manifestos.
According to the party, manifestoes can be written by any political party but delivering on those manifestos cannot be done by any political party.
The party adds that it takes the credibility and integrity of the presidential candidates to deliver on their promises.
The NPP made this known via a press conference organized today, Monday, September 21.
According to Nana Akomea, the Chief Executive Officer of the State Transport Cooperation, who addressed the press conference said thus urged Ghanaians to not take promises made by John Mahama serious.
“John Mahama in 2016 said Ghanaians should be careful with promises made by people when they are out of government because they don’t know the reality. So today he is out of government and he is making promises. Do we take him seriously? He himself has instructed us (Ghanaians) not to take such people seriously because they don’t know the reality. What do we do? Its the track record is what we must look at not your words.”
“So that is the choice that is before the people of Ghana because as for putting words in manifestos, every political can do that but when you have somebody putting words in a manifesto but that has had a chance to be in government, then you have measured the performance in government and the not words in the manifesto.”
