Fact check: Bawumia was wrong about Mahama’s achievements in the North

Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Sunday, November 24, 2019, intimated that former president John Mahama did nothing tangible for the people of northern Ghana during his reign.

Dr Bawumia went ahead to challenge the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag bearer to show proof of his legacies in the northern area.

The Vice President made these comments while addressing the chiefs and people of the Nandom during the 31st edition of the Kakube festival.

But YEN.com.gh's checks indicate that Dr. Bawumia’s assertion that Mahama did nothing for the north is false.

In fact, John Mahama’s legacies in the north abound.

For example, the Mahama-led administration supervised the construction of 160-bed Upper West Regional Hospital in Wa.

John Mahama and his NDC also rehabilitated and upgraded the Wa Airstrip into an airport for domestic flights.

YEN can also confirm that it was during John Mahama’s tenure as President that the Gambaga College of Education was established in the north.

From the above, it is untrue that John Mahama doesn’t have a legacy in northern Ghana during his tenure as president of the Republic of Ghana.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that visa shortage has hit the Ghana consulate in the United States following an upsurge in the number of prospective visitors to the country.

The Ghana consulate in the United State has announced that those seeking Ghanaian visas would no longer get it straightforward.
