The Acting General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has accused the ruling NDC of lacking creativity and hence continue to “steal” intellectual ideas.
The opposition party is on record to have said it is keeping details of its yet-to-be-launched 2016 election manifesto for fear of government copying the party’s well thought of policies for Ghana if voted.
In the last few days, an advert by a pro-NPP group projecting the candidature of flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo made its way onto social media. But 48 hours later, a modified version of the ‘HOPE Campaign’ video promoting the works of President John Mahama also emerged on various social media platforms.

Speaking on #StateOfAffairs Wednesday, Mr. John Boadu who is also the substantive national organiser for the NPP claims their rivals have plagiarized the HOPE Campaign concept and distorted its content.
“The NDC stole the HOPE advert. It is so embarrassing; I can’t imagine,” Mr. Boadu bemoaned.
“They shamelessly did it and they’re so happy. Can you imagine this?
“They don’t really have ingenuity so they will continue to steal ideas.”
“You see, the time they use to steal, why don’t they use it to think?”
“That’s why we are where we are – totally engulfed in debt,” he charged.
Mr. John Boadu claimed the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is strategically planning on when to launch after a botched August 4 plan. He told Nana Aba Anamoah that the original date was abandoned after Parliament rejected the proposed November 7 election date.
