Former President John Mahama has recounted how projects he started during his tenure in office as president have been abandoned by the Akufo-Addo-led government.
According to ClassFM report, he stated that he would continue and complete all unfinished projects of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) if he wins the 2020 elections and becomes president again.
He made this known while interacting with fisherfolk from the Western Region when they paid a courtesy call on him at his office in Accra.
“We constructed a fish processing plant in Elmina to help the community and the fisherfolk but as I speak, the facility has been abandoned because it was constructed by another government,” Mahama said.
He reminisced how he started constructing 200 new secondary schools but the ones that were uncompleted had been abandoned by the NPP government.
Mahama, however, said if he comes to power again, unlike the NPP government, he would complete all unfinished projects of this administration to avoid wasting the taxpayers’ money.
In other news, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has threatened to declare its own results in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary results if the Electoral Commission does not rescind its decision to compile a new voters' register.
Addressing the media in Accra, the Minority Leader in Ghana’s Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu quizzed why the EC wants to change a register that was used to elect President Akufo-Addo.
“Isn’t it the same voters’ register that made Akufo-Addo the President? Why are they saying the register is outdated? Should we then question the legitimacy of President Akufo Addo?… We’re committed to peaceful elections, but we will not accept the fraudulent results," he quipped.
