Ghanaians have however flooded the post with their comments and suggestions
@Worlanyo Gbenya believes a smaller budget would have reduced the pressure on the public purse.
Woww! This will certainly alleviate the plight of beneficiary communities. But how about a little above $310, 000 spent on average or for just one of these? This may not be saving the public purse
@Ike Godson believes the project would have an overwhelming impact
Very enormous project with overwhelming potential impact. Well done Ghana government.
@Thundyrock Akosa Berko believes the money used for the commissioning sould be used for another project
The money spent for commissioning such projects could be used to facilitate another.
