The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Flagbearer, John Mahama has again accused the Akufo-Addo administration of abandoning development projects started by his administration. This time the former President pointed towards the Volta Region as evidence of this after making similar comments in other regions.
According to Mr. Mahama, schools and road projects initiated during his time as President have been left unattended to in the region. Speaking to market women at Sogokope in the Volta Region, Mr. Mahama insisted that the government has failed Ghanaians. “All the projects have come to a standstill because the NDC left office. The Community secondary school has come to a standstill. All the road projects have come to a standstill.”
Mr. Mahama most recently made similar complaints when he visited the northern part of Ghana.When he visited a completed but not in use Community Day School at Mpaha in the Yapei Kusawgu Constituency of the Savanna Region, he condemned the government for not paying for ongoing projects and refusing to open up other completed ones.
Speaking during a campaign tour of the Northern Region, back in 2018, Mr. Mahama described this situation with development projects as unfortunate.“It is a pity because everything that we started has come to a standstill. I go round the country and most of the roads, where we left them on 7th January 2017, that is where the roads have ended.
All the community based Secondary Schools, where we left them on 7th January 2017, that is where they have ended.” “And the tragedy is, if you ask the New Patriotic Party (NPP) what are they doing about the road they will say free SHS. If you ask about the CHPS compound, they will say we have given you free SHS, when you ask about jobs, they will say we have given you free SHS.”
