Former President John Dramani Mahama has said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had a superior manifesto document in the 2020 elections than the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr Mahama said that due to the good contents of the NDC's manifesto, that of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) was relegated to the background by analysts.

He stated that their document contained solutions to all the challenges that Ghanaians are saddled with at the moment.

He stated that the manifesto contained plans for job creation, for the economy and also infrastructure.

There was a plan to create one million jobs for Ghanaians in the document, he said while addressing a group of Ghanaians in the Eastern Region on Tuesday October 12 as part of his thank you tour of the region.

The high unemployment rate, business are suffering, the economy is collapsing. All the answers to what Ghana is going through today are in NDC's 2020 manifesto. The big push for infrastructure, 10 billion dollars into infrastructure to construct our roads, our hospitals, our schools, they are all in our 2020 manifesto," Mr Mahama said.

"After the launch of our manifesto no one discussed the NPP's manifesto, they all focused their attention on ours, the plan to create one million jobs was also in there."
