The Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Tuesday, August 18 addressed a Town Hall Meet on infrastructure projects executed by the Nana Akufo-Addo government.

The Vice President also touched on value for money and opined that the Akufo-Addo administration is focused on delivering the best value for money for all of its projects.
Bawumia gave an example of the NPP spending $289m on four interchanges and the NDC/Mahama government spending a staggering $260m on a single interchange.
But in a swift response to the Veep’s address, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi described the lecture as false and plagiarized.
Mr. Gyamfi stated that some of the projects listed by the NPP are projects executed by the John Mahama administration.
“Bawumia’s presentation on the so-called infrastructural achievements of the Akufo Addo-government, is a compendium of blatant falsehoods, plagiarized Mahama projects and a comical celebration of mediocrity,” the NDC Commission Officer tweeted right after Bawumia’s presentation.
