NPP Supporters commend NDC 52.9% Manifesto coverage
Some New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters that thronged the International Trade Fair Centre La, Accra to witness their long awaited party’s (NPP’s) manifesto launch have commended President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC government for covering an acceptable percentage of the party’s (NDC) 2012 manifesto promise.
This follows a report released by IMANI Ghana, a Think Tank led by its President, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe based on a survey his outfit conducted on the NDC 2012 manifesto which indicated that the party (NDC) has covered about 52.9% (ie. 53%) programmes and policies contained in its manifesto.
The NPP supporters who came from outside the Greater Accra Region to support the manifesto launch in Accra admitted they saw some developmental projects on their way to and within Accra.
According to them, what they came to see as also contained in the NDC green book hugely contradicts what they were made to believe, they said to The Republic Newspaper in Twi.
The beauty and smoothness of the Giffard Road through El-Wak to 37 Military Hospital from the T-Junction (opposite the La Palm Beach Hotel), generated the discussion amongst this NPP youth activists whilst the manifesto launch was going on.
One of them, Kofi Asare from the Atiwa West Constituency, said he was marveled when they got to the site of the on-going construction of the Kwame Nkrumah Circle interchange due to the magnificent architectural design of the fly-overs.
“It takes only a driver who plies this Circle road always to find his way here. This is good,” he added.
Those who came a day before the manifesto launch on Sunday, said they toured some few places in Accra to see for themselves certain claims made in the NDC Green Book and were marveled to see a ‘brand new’ Ridge Hospital with the inscription, ‘Greater Accra Regional Hospital’, Kasoa Interchange construction,Job 600,Police Hospital among others.
According to Kofi and his NPP friends, even though their political sympathies lie with the NPP, they cannot help but commend President Mahama for the good job he has done and still doing across the country.
