The Deputy Minister for Information, Pius Enam Hadzide, has described the NDC’s manifesto as a rehash of old unfulfilled promises by the erstwhile John Mahama government.
He said touting the NDC manifesto launched on Monday as a People’s Manifesto is a deception engineered to hoodwink Ghanaians to vote for the NDC in the upcoming December elections.
“It was a rehash of old promises not kept, especially the payment of assembly members was an old John Mahama promise not kept
“…what I am worried about is the credibility of the promises, we must benchmark their promises against their track record because they have made promises in the past that they have not kept.”
Announcing highlights of the NDC manifesto on Monday at the University of Professional Studies, Accra, Professor Opoku Agyemang, stated that a future NDC administration will make the free SHS better and more inclusive.
“We have every plan and desire to make the free SHS much better,” she said adding that and NDC government will abolish double track system by completing all educational structures and e-blocks abandoned by the NPP government.
According to her, an NDC government under Mr John Mahama will expand the free SHS policy to cover students in private senior high schools.
