Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyepong has said that the governing NDC has not stolen any manifesto idea from the opposition NPP.

Agyepong revealed this in an interview with Accra-based Adom FM. He said: “no one has stolen your ideas, you simply have no proof”.

He explained that, the NPP has no proof of allegation since the NDC only delivered the highlights of its manifesto recently.

“It’s about time we stopped this child’s play and focus on issues that will move the nation forward. We are in an election year and as an opposition party ready for power, we can’t afford to counter the ruling party over unnecessary issues…most especially when we want power”, he disclosed.

“You can see now, what they [NDC] call the highlights of their manifesto was just a photocopy of what the New Patriotic Party has been saying and it is amazing that we still have these people talking to the people of this country,”  John Boadu, the acting General Secretary of the NPP told journalists on Wednesday in Accra.

Meanwhile Kofi Adams, who is the campaign coordinator of the NDC said, “nobody is copying Nana Addo,” and that the policy highlights presented by President Mahama are captured in the government White Paper.

He revealed that the NDC since its inception in 1992 have been social democrats and that it is simply untenable to claim that they [NDC] are stealing social democratic ideas from a capitalist entity [NPP].

If today, you have seen the sense in what we have stood for since 1992 and you are coming towards our side then you now want to claim what has been our right all this while,” he added.

He further emphasized that the ruling party is poised at retaining power after the 2016 election and will not meddle in such trivialities.

“Nana Addo has never come out with any such good ideas. Nana Addo is talking about one dam one village. He doesn’t see the difference… at least yesterday (Tuesday 13th august)  the president taught him the difference”.
