Manifesto equivalence trying to outdo political equivalence. This is what our last week was all about.

After launching their 2016 manifesto and pointing out how much bigger it was than the NPP document of last year, the NDC party then set out to go head to head with NPP’s Bawumia to paint a picture of a liar and unfair analysis of the metrics which they themselves published.

It seems to have failed, the numbers stack up and Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur is not being allowed to go one on one with the NPP’s view, despite his bold offer to challenge all that the NPP side said the week before. As if they know it, the NDC campaign train seems to have decided that any attempt to challenge Dr. Bawumia on a technical level would not be in their best interest. Not because Bawumia is the only person in this country who has ever pointed out to this government that they clearly are not solving the economic problems, that we are poorer today than we were when they came into office eight year ago, not because Bawumia is any better an economist than Vice President Amissah Arthur, though he could be, if you sjkew the argument that the head of the NDC economic management team is better and more superior, but for political interference.

Critical News, 18th September 2016

Please do not read the NDC 2016 manifesto. It is a litany of promises never to be delivered. Rather, I urge you to go back and find the 2012 document they issued.

Got it? Now read it in detail and look around. Anything there seem familiar? Can you reconcile the crass dumping of words at that time to the physical environment you have today? I am looking for a paragraph, which explains where they said they would develop this country and ready it for take off in the future to come. Does it say anywhere that that they are building an infrastructure-based economy that would move us forward to a Ghana utopia? Because that is the new song on the campaign trail.

Next year we turn 60. If you believe in karma, note this coincidence. After ruling the country for many decades the NDC and its previous versions lost the elections in 2000 and handed over to the NPP just as Ghana celebrated its golden jubilee in 2007. Can’t tell you why, but is it just a coincidence that the NDC party maybe will not get an opportunity to reward themselves on another decade of mismanagement? Read the rest of this entry »
