The party is seeking an ambitious overhaul of the country’s infrastructure and industry with a promise to move Ghana up the rungs of middle income.
With a new manifesto title “Transforming our lives; transforming Ghana” the opposition party says it will harness the huge natural and human resource base to the direct benefit of the Ghanaian.
A banker with the Data Bank and a key member of the manifesto drafting committee of the NPP, Yoofi Grant told Joy News’ Evans Mensah the new manifesto is set to "re-engineer how we do thing to get different results."
We need to “change systems, change processes and the outcomes will change,” he noted.
Yoofi Grant said Ghana has the resources and the can do spirit but lacked the right leadership to steer the country forward in the right direction.
A key part of the manifesto, he noted will be to change the economy which has always being a "relic of the colonial times."
He said the party will add value to its raw materials as it seeks to industrialise.
On housing, he said the party will complete the affordable housing project it started and will institute a social housing policy to ensure that those who cannot afford to own a home but are ready to rent, do so without any difficulties.
With the party flagbearer already touting education as his major issue of concern, Grant said the manifesto provides a clear road map towards the implementation of a solid educational agenda of the NPP if voted into power.
He said with a free but quality SHS education system under a Nana Akufo-Addo government, there will be much better people in the country with a clear vision.
He said the future NPP government will make Ghana a net exporter of energy with huge investments set to be made in the energy sector.
The ultimate aim he noted is to make Ghana a transformed society.
The manifesto is expected to be launched on Wednesday, three days after the the launch of the party's 2012 campaign.
