Editor-in-Chief of the New crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has criticised the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for adding the scrapping of the double-track system in their manifesto.
According to him, if the research team of the NDC had done a good job they would not have put it in the manifesto without much thoughts. To him, NDC’s desire to scrap double track is only propaganda that shouldn’t have found its way into any serious manifesto.
” . . truly, I thought the agitation on double track which I said was propagandist ought not to find its way into any serious manifesto if indeed the manifesto team was researching and knew that there’s a time frame; this thing is transitional…”
“It’s needless agitation but it’s borne out of the earlier targeting of double-track in order to devalue the free SHS policy . . . leading them to put it in the manifesto without seriously thinking thoroughly about it,” he indicated on Joy Newsfile programme.
