President John Mahama has described the ‘one to one’ promises made by the presidential nominee of NPP as an ancient style of campaigning.

The President was speaking on Metro TV Tuesday. He argued that until Nana Akufo Addo explains his implementation strategy of his promises to the electorates his current style remains one that was primitive.

"Maybe when his manifesto comes we will understand what exactly he wants to come and do. Like I said, these promises are not new. They are yesterday's campaigning style; my father's time, you just throw out something and people just take it; 'one village one dam, one district one factory' what kind of factory are you going to build? Is it a car assembly plant or a manufacturing unit or what?" he quizzed.

“This 'one district, one factory' issue came up in the past, it is not a new idea, it is an old idea. But you need to take so many things into consideration, like the proximity of the company to resources...the promises are not new.”

According to President Mahama even the ‘one village one dam’ is a project they (NDC government) are already undertaking.

"There are several things that are happening in the North already. We are revamping a lot of the dams there and there is huge irrigation project that is going to take place in that area soon and so if you just come and say ‘one village one dam’, you really haven't said anything.”

President Mahama was optimistic the NDC would win the December polls because the parties promises are “realistic and achievable”.

Nana Akufo Addo on his campaign trail has made numerous promises. Key among the promises is the ‘one district one factory’ nationwide and ‘one village one dam’ in the three regions of the North.
