The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of using its eight year term in government to practice capitalism.

According to him, the NPP has a track record of lying to the good people of Ghana via their manifestos in order to score cheap political points.

He said, “They are missing in their path. They are a capitalist party that believes in creating the environment for the rich to thrive and for the poor to fend for themselves even if They cannot afford to do so by themselves."

Addressing party supporters at the NDC manifesto launch in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region,he said the NPP cannot win the fight of providing social amenities for Ghanaians.

"So why are they now coming to lay claim to the social policies that are the preserve of a socialist party like the NDC. We have an ideology that says that even though the rich must still make their money, the state must take care and protect the interest and welfare of the needy and weak in society. That is why we have no difficulty in continuing the school feeding, leap and the various social protection programs."

He said Sunyani was selected for the launch because as the name of the town suggests they are going to slaughter the elephant, which is the symbol of the opposition New Patriotic Party.
