The yet to be outdoored New Patriotic Party manifesto can take Ghana to the promised land if only there is commitment and the political will to execute it, says a University of Ghana lecturer, Ransford Gyampo.

He was reacting to the highlights of the NPP manifesto which was made public last week.

The party last Saturday adopted the contents of the manifesto which is titled “Transforming our lives; transforming Ghana,” at a Delegates Conference in Accra.

The manifesto, which will be officially launched Wednesday, amongst other things, promises to turn Ghana into an industrialized country.

A member of the Manifesto Drafting Committee, Mr. Yoofi Grant told Joy News the “buy and sell economy,” Ghana has practised for years will give way to a “do and sell economy”.

He said there will be value addition to raw materials produced in Ghana which will subsequently be exported.

On health, he said an Akufo-Addo government will be building three additional first class state-of-the-art hospitals to cater for the health needs of Ghanaians and to ease the pressure on the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital as well as the Komfo-Anokye Teaching Hospital.

Mr. Grant also outlined a number of infrastructural projects the party will execute if the NPP is given the mandate in December.

Whilst conceding that the content of the manifesto is promising, Ransford Gyampo insisted it will take more than just the good policy prescriptions on paper to develop Ghana.

He said many of the previous manifestos of all the political parties equally had good policy initiatives but the total lack of political will to execute them had seen Ghana stagnating in its development.
