Former president John Dramani Mahama has made a claim that during his tenure as president, he initiated the One Village One Dam (1V1D) policy.

Mahama claimed that the NDC government constructed 120 dugouts before it left office in 2016 but did not indicate where some of the dams are located.

The former president, who is currently on a campaign tour of the newly created Savannah Region, threw shades at President Akufo-Addo and his administration for vigorously pursuing the initiative originated by the NDC.

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

He said cynically that the rains had exposed what he called NPP’s lies since all the dams they (NPP) claimed to have built had been washed away by the rains.

He remarked that the time had come for the people to choose what he called ‘truth’ over ‘lies’ and said the NPP were noted for telling ‘lies’ to win power.

In other news, the National Daily Minimum Wage (NDMW) would be increased by 11 percent from the beginning from the year 2020.

This means the current 2019 NDMW of GHC 10.65 will increase to GHC 11.82 effective next year.

The increment is in pursuance to the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651) section 113 (1) (a) and the Public Financial Management Act, 2016 (Act 921).
