The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Monday, September 7, launched its manifesto ahead of the December 7 elections at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), Accra.
A statement signed by James Agyenim-Boateng, the Campaign Spokesperson, said the National Executive Committee (NEC) unanimously approved the manifesto following a presentation to them by the manifesto committee.
“The manifesto, which addresses the felt needs of various interest groups and individuals, comes after months of consultations with professional groupings, opinion leaders, market women, groups and individuals from all over the country,” the statement said.
