Fact check: Akufo-Addo's claim Mahama’s road projects exist only in the ‘Green Book’ is false

- President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo believes the National Democratic Congress’ road infrastructure its members boasted about while in power can only be found in their Green Book

- The office of former president John Mahama has catalogued a number of infrastructural projects executed by the former president in response to President Nana Akufo-Addo's “ghost projects” comment

- For example, it is during the tenure of John Mahama that the 74 million Euro three-tier Kwame Nkrumah interchange was completed

President Akufo-Addo has mocked the opposition National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) claim that it embarked on major infrastructural development while in power.

According to the president, the NDC’s much-touted road projects only exist in their Green Book.

Nana Addo said this while speaking at a durbar of chiefs and elders of Assin Jakai in the Assin South constituency.

The road infrastructure the NDC boasted of can only be found in the green book,” Nana Addo said.

He further indicated that the New Patriotic Party will soon begin construction of major roads in the Assin South constituency.

He said the Assin Manso to Otcheso road has already been awarded to a contractor, while works are also ongoing on the Sewiasi to Womaho road.

But YEN.com.gh can state emphatically that comments made by President Nana Akufo-Addo are false, to say the least.

Former president Mahama's tenure as the first gentleman of the land saw massive infrastructural development across the country - from building of schools, hospitals, roads, etc.

For example John Mahama's administration saw the construction of the 74 million Euro three-tier Kwame Nkrumah interchange in Accra.

In fact, the John Dramani Mahama administration between 2013 and 2016, constructed a number of roads across the country.

It is therefore very erroneous for the current president, Akufo-Addo, to suggest that the Mahama's road projects only exists in the NDC's Green Book.
