The People’s Manifesto 2020
As Social Democrats, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) subscribes to a compassionate political philosophy that seeks to create opportunities for all to develop to their fullest potential.
We believe that our pursuit of economic prosperity for all Ghanaians can best be achieved through appropriate regulation and strategic investments. The NDC is, therefore, committed to using the legal, fiscal and trade instruments at our disposal, in an inclusive effort, to safeguard the jobs of today and create sustainable jobs for the future.
This Manifesto is our Social Contract between the people of Ghana and the NDC Government. Creating a bright future for Ghana and our people means delivering on our Social Contract and ensuring that the vision comes to life.
In our quest to build a sustainable society with opportunities for all, we will continue to prioritise quality education and skills development as the cornerstone of progress. We will embark on a US$10 billion accelerated infrastructural plan, dubbed the ‘Big Push’, which will drive jobs and entrepreneurial agenda.
We, in the NDC, re-dedicate ourselves to the expansion of economic freedom and opportunities by providing incentives for small businesses to grow, as well as, encourage local community development. In addition, we will build an environment for digital transformation and domestic manufacturing to support job creation.
Our overarching goal is to deliver Jobs, Prosperity and More.

• Fixing the Economy and Uniting Against Poverty
