The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Tamale Central Constituency, Inusah Fuseine , has disclosed that, the NDC could not launch its 2020 campaign manifesto as scheduled because the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) ‘stole’ their manifesto .
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) set August 31, 2020 to launch their manifesto but had to postpone it to September 7, 2020.
It was unclear why the opposition NDC had to postpone their campaign manifesto but speaking on A1 Radio Daybreak Upper East, the Tamale central legislator, accused the NPP of copying their manifesto hence the change in date for the launch of the NDC manifesto.
“Our manifesto was ready in July, we do not want to launch our manifesto because we believed that NPP copied our manifesto, that’s our believe.
In fact the last election, the one before 2012 election, our offices were actually robbed. I’m just saying that NPP copied our manifesto.”
Mr. Fuseini was optimistic, the NDC will win the 2020 elections if there is high turnout of electorates on the day of election because NDC sympathizers are more than NPP.
“ When you go to the statistics, I hope that NDC members in Bolga are listening, when you go to the statistics anytime that we have a high turnout of about 70% of electorates, 70% the election NDC win but when we have a low turnout NPP will win. NDC sympathizers and followers are more than NPP and in history the records are there to show.
In fact until Kufour won the election by the great alliance, NPP never got more than 30% of the votes in this country. So, the needed to enter into an alliance to win. So we want everybody able and available on 7th December to come out and vote.”
He predicted that, the NDC will win 16 out of the 18 seats in Northern Region be most of the seats are originally NDC seats.
But the Deputy National Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Obiri Boahen was confident the NPP will win 200 out of the 275 parliamentary seats .
