The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has disclosed that no new project would be initiated in his first year in office if voted into power again.
The decision not to initiate projects in the first year, Mahama said, will allow his government to take stock of uncompleted projects.
He made this known while speaking in an interview on Woezor TV after his three-day tour of the Oti Region.

“We will start no new project in the first year and what we will do is to harness all resources that are possible to continue and finish abandoned ones," he said.
His comment comes after the traditional leaders complained of projects in their localities that have been abandoned.
Mahama also indicated that individuals will be held accountable for abandoned projects that the state made resources available to be completed.
