The Minister in charge of the Agriculture sector, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto has revealed that the government’s One Village One Dam initiative is an expensive venture.

According to him, for the initiative to be implemented effectively, it requires a lot of time to be done.

He used the opportunity to, therefore, ask that the good people of Ghana would retain the Akufo-Addo-led administration come December 7 to continue with the dam infrastructure they have initiated in the northern part of the country.

“The irrigation is very expensive and restrictive. Four years is not enough,” he explained.

He made this known while speaking of the sidelines of the government’s Town Hall and Results Fair which was held on Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

As part of the Akufo-Addo administration’s commitment to facilitate the growth of agriculture, it embarked on a One Village One Dam policy to improve irrigation all year round.

In other news, 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.
