NPP Embarks On Massive Distribution Of Manifesto

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is embarking on a massive distribution of its manifesto to all sectors of the Ghanaian society.

According to Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku, National Campaign Director of the Akufo-Addo for President 2008, the party's launch of the manifesto in Kumasi was the first step of the whole process of the dissemination exercise.

He told the Daily Graphic in Accra, that “it is the availability and accessibility of the NPP manifesto that is more crucial, and that the party is making sure it is available.”

Currently, he said, the manifesto was on the Internet so that individuals and organisations could access it whilst an abridged version was available for easy reading.

Dr Apraku said the party had already made efforts to distribute the manifesto to private and public sector organisations, including business groups, universities, tertiary and security institutions, libraries, government organisations, including the ministries, as well as the media.

He said the party had also been receiving calls from individuals enquiring as to how to buy copies to feel a sense of ownership.

He said the manifesto was not yet in the bookshops because “they are free for now and individuals can pick copies from the campaign office and the party headquarters.”

He said plans were advanced for the manifestos to be translated into Ghanaian languages, as well as have a braille for the visually impaired.

He said the party had already met the leadership of the National Association of People Living with HIV/AIDS, and encouraged them to participate in the programmes of the party.

According to Dr Apraku, it was the determination of the party to involve the weak and physically challenged in all their rallies because they were an important part of the society.

“We will do everything possible to let them have a sense of belonging,” he told the Daily Graphic.

Dr Apraku said the NPP was committed to ensuring that “we maximise the value of the blind and all physically challenged in the society to encourage them to develop skills that would contribute to societal well-being”.
