The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has responded to the opposition New Patriotic Party’s claim that the NDC has been ‘stealing’ their manifesto ideas.
Describing the claims as unfounded and unpatriotic, Asiedu Nketia added that if indeed the NDC is copying the NPP in terms of manifesto, the later should be jumping around in joy and happiness.

Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Kasapa FM, Nketia said the NPP is supposed to be very excited that the development of the nation by the ruling NDC is similar to what they have in their party manifesto – that’s if their claim is true though.
He therefore advised the NPP not to worry about their ideas being implemented by the NDC since all is for the well being of the country as a whole. He also added that his party has got many great ideas for the country in their own manifesto which will soon be launched for all to see.

If indeed there was any truth in their claim, then they should be happy. Because that means that the nation is being developed around their ideas and that should excite them.
If their plan was to come and implement those ideas and someone has taken them and executing them, that should serve their objective and purpose; so there shouldn’t be any issue at all. But the truth is, that claim is baseless.
We in the NDC have great ideas and we don’t mind if anybody stole them. We will still launch ours and everyone will see them.
The two parties in opposition, NDC and NPP has been squabbling over the later’s accusations that their ideologies are often stolen by the ruling party, with particular reference to the free secondary school education.
Speaking on the same issue, President Mahama also said the NDC will soon unveil their own manifesto for the free ‘copying’ of all who wish to do so.
