Former president John Dramani Mahama has criticised the Akufo-Addo government over the type of dams being constructed under the One Village-One Dam policy.

According to him, most of the projects look more like dugouts and are therefore not qualified to be called dams.

Speaking to the chiefs and people of Jindabor in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency, Mahama described the dams as “inferior”.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer said the dams lack quality and easily get destroyed whenever it rains.

Always remember that when you deceive people, the reality catches up with you. By God’s grace, the NPP came to power and they have started building what they call dams,” Mahama said.

It turns out that the dams they were talking of are the same dugouts that we were digging under the John Mahama administration.

“Their dams are even of inferior quality because when it rains, the dams are breaking and the water is flowing away,” he added.

The ‘one village, one dam’ was one of the NPP’s major campaign promises going into the 2016 general elections.
