POLITICS: "NDC's Manifesto Is Without Empty Promises" - Jane Opoku-Agyemang
The Vice Presidential Candidate for the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang has hinted that the party's manifesto which is set to be launched on September 7 is without empty promises.
According to her, the manifesto is targeted at addressing the needs of Ghanaians.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Bekwai in the Western North region, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang said “Developing a manifesto is not about gathering some 10 people in a room to write a document on what they think the people need. You end up with misplaced priorities and empty promises"
“The question is, who are you doing it for, and what are the people saying are their actual needs and wants?” she added.
Speaking on the second coming of the NDC, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang noted that Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) will be boosted with funding from the $10billion “Big Push” agenda.
"This will make TVET more attractive and accessible to the youth to address youth unemployment in a proactive manner. The plan for enhanced TVET, she explained, fed into the objective of upgrading polytechnics to technical universities, envisaged under the previous NDC administration" she explained.
