Ace political activist Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has said that the NDC’s assessment of the NPP’s 2016 manifesto promises was an exercise in futility looking at history.
According to the editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, that NDC press conference on Monday was a misplaced priority especially with just five months remaining in the build up to the 2020 general elections.
Appearing as a pundit on Peace FM’s Kokrookoo with Chairman General Kwame Sefa Kayi on Wednesday June 17, 2020, Mr. Baako stated that Manifestos do not have any effect on the general electorates as their contents usually does not target the ordinary Ghanaian voter.
He revealed that Manifestos are usually aimed at academicians, researchers, historians, civil society and pressure groups, foreign envoys, among others who will have keen interest in Manifesto promises.
The experienced journalist also added that the NDC’s rating of 14% was not factual and conclusive enough because if those few fulfilled promises has had the needed impact on the populace, then the government has been a success.
