Kufuor to lead NPP manifesto launch at Trade Fair

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has confirmed it will launch its manifesto on October 9, 2016 at Trade Fair in the Greater Accra Region.

The initial venue was the Tamale Sports Stadium, where the NPP held its national delegates congress.

But the party in a statement indicated that the venue for the event had been moved to Trade Fair.

“The launch of the manifesto, which contains the solutions Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the party propose to help fix the myriad of problems facing the country, including how to resolve the unemployment problem among young Ghanaians, will be held at the forecourt of the Accra International Trade Fair Centre.”

It further indicated that “the event will be presided by Ghana’s most successful democratic leader, President John Agyekum Kufuor.”

The launch is expected to be followed by a major political rally, which, according to the party, will be opened to all members of the general public.

“The rally will be preceded by a stakeholder briefing of the manifesto to Civil Society and Identifiable Groups, Embassies and Diplomatic Missions and Political Parties at the Unique Events Palace, Trade Fair Center at 12pm prompt,” the statement added.

Persons expected to attend the rally include the Flagbearer of the party,  Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his running mate, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia among others.

So far, only the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), have released their manifestos ahead of the polls in December.

In September, President John Mahama launched the NDC 2016 manifesto at Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region, in front of thousands of party supporters from across the country.
