Stop the jokes and tell us your alternatives, NPP tells NDC Featured

The governing New Patriotic Party has accused the National Democratic Congress of lacking the ideas and vision to engage in an issue-based campaign, ahead of the 2020 general elections.

According to the NPP, the content of the press conference by the main opposition party on Tuesday shows clearly that it has nothing to contribute to the competition of ideas and performances.

Addressing a press yesterday, the national youth organiser of the party, Nana Boakye (Nana B), further accused the NDC of reducing the 2020 campaign to tribal politics, citing the party’s bogus list of appointees with supposed family ties with the President.

“What the NDC is doing is clear that they want to play the discredited Ashanti vs Akyem card; Akans vs Non-Akans card. It is a hopeless and irresponsible agenda by an opposition party that is empty of ideas and empty on performance,” he stated.

What’s your alternative?

The NDC, he said, should tell Ghanaians their alternatives for the numerous policies and programmes being implemented by the Akufo-Addo government.

“They should tell us their alternative for Free SHS, Planting for Food and Jobs, the payment of the various allowances and others,” he added.

The NPP national youth organiser said the next general elections is about ‘Vision 2020’, and not for those who have no vision.

“Let us use this opportunity to ask Ghanaians to ask themselves a simple but very important question. Perhaps, the most important question for 2020: What Does John Mahama stand for? What does he believe in? What is his vision?” he stated.

Clear Akufo-Addo vision

At least in Akufo-Addo, he said, the Ghanaian people know what he stands for and has been consistent in what he stands for all throughout his political life.

“In 2008, he promised free secondary education. He stuck to it in 2012 and stayed with it in 2016 and has delivered on it in office. He campaigned on Ghana’s industrialisation and adding value to our natural resources. Today, he has set up the Ghana Integrated Aluminium Development Corporation to add value to Ghana’s one billion tonnes of bauxite.

“It is this same bauxite that John Mahama signed away to his younger brother, Ibrahim Mahama, one week before NPP took office. President John Mahama gave 80% of our bauxite, valued at least $200 billion. Please, listen carefully, over $200 billion, of our national asset was handed over to one person, who is the younger brother of the President, who dashed it to him before leaving office. It took the new government and the Supreme Court, in unanimous decision, to show that what John Mahama did was illegal,” he explained.
