A former broadcast journalist with the Multimedia Group Limited, Manasseh Azure Awuni, has raised doubts about the promises in the NDC’s manifesto.
Manasseh reveals that even though the manifesto by the opposition is well crafted, it will be difficult for the party to implement the promises even in ten years.
Describing the promises as very ambitious, he says that it is so looking at the devastating effects of COVID-19 on the economy.
“….My other concern is that the NDC manifesto is too ambitious for an ailing post-COVID-19 economy like ours, especially when the current administration is said to have borrowed more than all governments since independence.
“It will be impossible to execute 50% of this manifesto considering the leakage and wastage in the public sector. The manifesto is meant to win votes and one cannot reasonably expect all the promises to be delivered even in 10 years,” he reacted on Social Media after the launch of the manifesto on Monday.
“If the iron-plaited mouth and throat grant passage to a sharp knife, we should be worried about how the delicate anus is going to expel it. It’s easy to promise, but the delivery is another thing.”
