Hawa Koomson challenges Mahama over "One Village, One dam" claims

The minister of Special Development Initiatives, Mavis Hawa Koomson, has claimed that former president John Dramani Mahama is mistaken about the present government's delivery on promises of "One Village, One Dam" (1V, 1D).

The former Ghana leader in a campaign speech in Wa said that the government had failed on its promise to build a dam in each farming village in Northern Ghana.

Classfmonline.com reports that the Mahama told National Democratic Congress (NDC) faithful that dugouts in some northern towns had been there before he left office in January 2017.

But Koomson pushed back. with the minister offering to take the former president on a personal tour of completed sites if Mahama cared to know.

At a conference at the Ministry of Information in Accra on Tuesday, 13 November, Ms Koomson is quoted as saying: “If he [Mr Mahama] wants to know where the dams are, he should contact me and I’ll take him there.

“When you go to Kpandai, we have one there; when you go to Salaga, from Yeji you cross the river to Salaga, there is one village there called Garishegu, there is one dam there. Yendi and Yeji, too.”

Prior to the 2016 election, President Akufo-Addo promised to build a dam in each farming village in Northern Ghana as part of agricultural irrigation policy.
