Joyce Mogtari, Special Aide to former President John Mahama, has hinted on how the National Democratic Congress (NDC) intends to prepare its victory manifesto ahead of the 2020 general election.
She indicated that “the action plans in the party’s document will be developed by people I described as ‘great minds’ whose ideas which will fall in line with the expectations of the citizenry to bring them the relief they desire and deliver them from the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP’s) “shackles of poverty”.
“We have more time to come up with a manifesto, when it comes to ideas, I think everybody knows the NDC has great minds led by fantastic individuals who have done amazing things, in terms of churning out ideas for the citizenry and it is never in doubt we have solid ideas that are going to come up.
“That is why the NDC called on well-meaning citizens to consult extensively to bring out ideas that the citizenry want to see, I do believe finally, when the manifesto committee comes out with our manifesto, it will be the winning document to take us to the next election and win convincingly,” Ms Mogtari assured.
She stated that the defeat of the party in the 2016 elections had left the citizenry in a remorseful state, according to her, a country tour she embarked on recently showed that they are in despair by what she feels was hash economic conditions and extremely difficult living standards brought on them by the governing NPP.
Ms Mogtari noted that she was convinced the propaganda NPP trumpeted on issues such as better conditions and fight against corruption might have won them the elections, and had not been honoured as promised by the government, a situation she thinks makes Ghanaians regret handing over power to the Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration and wished the NDC and its flag bearer, former President Mahama had stayed for a while.
“I have actually been going around the country. I sense there is certain nostalgia in Ghanaians on some of reasons and issues they stood upon and decided to vote us out, there has been some expressions of regret in that regard and they now realise there was enormous propaganda,” Ms Mogtari bemoaned. -citinewsroom.com
