The Northern Regional capital, Tamale, will no longer host the manifesto launch of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The party will now launch its manifesto at the Trade Fair Center in Accra on October 9.
The initial venue was the Tamale Sports Stadium, where the NPP held its national delegates congress, and the Party had said the choice of Tamale was to maximize the party’s electoral fortunes in the Northern Region on December 7.
It also said the NPP Presidential nominee, Nana Akufo-Addo’s successful campaign tour of the Northern Region necessitated the choice of Tamale.
But sources within the party told Citi News the Tamale arrangement has been cancelled, and did not explain why.
As to what the manifesto may contain, the NPP running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has indicated that, the manifesto will place emphasis on job creation and creating an enabling business environment for economic growth.
So far, only the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), have released their manifestos ahead of the polls in December.
In September, President John Mahama launched the NDC 2016 manifesto at Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region, in front of thousands of party supporters from across the country.
