NPP’s manifesto will destroy Ghana - Mahama

President John Dramani Mahama President John Dramani Mahama

The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has described the manifesto of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as empty warning that the policies and plans contained in it will destroy the country.

Speaking Wednesday at a rally at Afienya in the Ningo Prampram constituency in the Greater Accra region, President Mahama said "When the NPP read their manifesto, it was obvious that their economic plan would destroy this economy.

"If you take the NPP's economic plan, they are reducing taxes on everything; removing taxes on raw materials, reducing VAT on several items, reducing corporate income tax so when you do that you are reducing your revenue.

"If you look at that economic plan they showed Ghanaians, it is unworkable, it will ruin this economy, it will take inflation back up, it will raise interest rates and it will put us back where it just came from and so it’s the craziest economic plan I have ever heard.”

As a result, he called on Ghanaians to reject the NPP and retain the NDC.
