The leading opposition party in Ghana, The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will today September 7, 2020, launch its 2020 manifesto for the December 7 polls.
The NDC earlier postponed the launch which was scheduled for August 30. General Secretary of the Party, Johnson Asiedu-Nketiah said the postponement was to ” enable the National Executive Committee and the Council of Elders to approve the policy principles and strategies promised in the Manifesto,”
The virtual launch will be held in Accra at the party’s headquarters with strict adherence to all COVID-19 protocols.
Meanwhile, ahead of the date scheduled for the launch of its manifesto, some policies believed to be in the 2020 document have already found their way online.
This includes pledges by the party to employ all national service personnel who wish to be employed permanently after service.
Also, teachers will allegedly get clothes, accommodation, and transportation allowance of 10% each, which will also mean a 30% increase in salary.
Again, the NDC is promising Ghanaians that the next government will ensure free education from KG to SHS, no admission fee at nursing, teaching and technical college/Universities
The party will again implement its Agenda 1million jobs for the youth and the BIG Push; $10Billion Infrastructure Program – both aimed at curbing unemployment within the country.
