The Deputy General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has described the NPP’s Manifesto as a Kalyppo Manifesto.
He noted that, the NPP’s Manifesto, has nothing to be discussed. “This press conference is to just position the Volta Region as the World Bank of the NDC. The NPP launched its Manifesto on Sunday, the Kalyppo Manifesto,” he noted.
Koku Anyidoho was speaking at a press conference held by the Party in Ho yesterday.
The Volta Regional Chairman of the NDC, Gyapong Cudjoe, who also addressed the press, said the NDC would rally behind the President, John Mahama, to win the upcoming elections.
He noted that, the NDC, has to be given the mandate to rule the country, since according to him, the NPP’s Manifesto is an empty one.
He, however, admitted that the NDC government has not fully developed the region, but was quick to add that when given a second chance, the NDC will further develop the region.
“We cannot say that the entire Volta region, has been fully developed under the Better Ghana Agenda of the NDC since the days of Professor Atta Mills.
We are more than confident that the good work that has been done, should not be truncated with the change of the current leadership of the country,” he admitted. Mr. Cudjoe, has also accused the NPP government of mismanaging resources in the Volta region under the Kufuor Administration.
He also questioned why the NPP plans to establish a middle belt development authority for Northern Volta and coastal development for the coastal part.
He said, the NPP, was sidelining some parts of the Volta region and noted that the NDC, has the region at heart.
