The Vice President, Dr Bawumia on Tuesday morning granted an interview on Accra-based radio station Peace FM.

Dr Bawumia answered questions on the 2020 manifesto of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) which was launched over the weekend in Cape Coast.

The NPP has, among others, promised to build a harbour and ultra-modern airport in Cape Coast, set up large recording studios in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale and Takoradi.
