The Vice Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofu, cited “strategic purposes” for the manifesto launch in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Ofosu Ampofo who is also the Director of Elections of the NDC said the party considered the political nature and political history of the region before choosing it as its venue.

Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM he said “Brong Ahafo is a “very strategic region for us for organisation and strategic purposes. It is one of the three swing regions in our country and so in our scheme of things, we thought that having launched our campaign in the Central Region, which is also one of the swing regions, we will move to Brong Ahafo to launch the manifesto so it is for very strategic reasons.”

He said they also considered the centrality of the region to all other regions and the easy transportation access for all who travelled to the Coronation Park in Sunyani for the launch.

Speaking at the launch of the manifesto on Saturday, the president said the manifesto is: “The authentic blueprint with which we envision the transformation of our country in the next four years. We are poised to change more lives and to transform Ghana."
