The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of having no message going into the 2020 elections.
According to the General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, the opposition is clinging on to character smearing and vague suppositions in an attempt to divert attention from the laudable achievements of the Akufo-Addo government.
At a press conference in Accra Wednesday, September 11, 2019, the General Secretary of the party, John Boadu stated that the NDC in the absence of anything concrete and future-looking to offer, have resorted to a game plan aimed at repeating loudly and very often a mantra of “corruption,” to tarnish the president’s name.
This strategy by the NDC, he said, is in the hope of getting that image to stick in not only Ghanaians’ minds but, also more importantly, to try to influence the outcomes of independent surveys – especially foreign-sourced surveys – as a way of vindicating their non-existent approach to fighting corruption.
“In sum, whilst the President acknowledges the presence of corruption, past and present, and demonstrates concrete steps towards sustainable lasting solutions, the NDC prefers smoke and mirrors, shouting as loudly as possible in the unrealistic hope of gaining doubtful political capital,” he said.
The NPP’s General Secretary has therefore challenged the NDC to come out with their policy position about the future of the country.
