Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Peter Boamah Otokunor, has stated that he played key roles in the writing of the party’s 2016 and 2020 manifestoes due to his background as an Agricultural Economist and Economic Policy Expert.
The NDC’s Deputy General Secretary recently graduated with a doctorate degree in Agricultural Economics and Policy from the University of Ghana.
“Economic Policy has also been my thing and because of the roles I play in the NDC, my knowledge in policy, particularly economic policy, has helped significantly. As you may be aware, in the last two manifestos that we had written in the NDC, 2016 and 2020, I played a critical role; actually, a critical role in writing all those manifestos. And some of you have judged those manifestos as the best the NDC has ever produced. So that tells you my capacity and knowledge in policy as well.”
Dr Otokunor was speaking to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show. He is seeking to replace John Asiedu Nketiah, who has served the NDC as General Secretary for the past 17 years.
