Some residents in the Oti Region of Ghana have narrated that a road that was labelled by the government as completed is actually in a bad shape.

The video report by JoyNews sighted by YEN.com.gh indicates that the particular road which leads to Kadjebi was one of the roads captured as reshaped and completed in the project tracker by the government.

One of the motor riders who usually used the road said:

"This road has been in its bad state for the past two years and there was no work done on it, so as you yourself can see, if they say they have rehabilitated it, then I don't think it is true".

On August 18, 2020, a website to enable Ghanaians to track infrastructural projects undertaken by the Akufo-Addo government was launched.

The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who announced this on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, said the website would help Ghanaians track promises fulfilled by the government.

Dr. Bawumia made this known when he addressed a Town Hall meeting hosted at the Academy of Art and Sciences and Ghanaians have since, started tracking the various projects listed.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh also reported that a video taken in the Volta Region, showing a moment when the National Democratic Congress convoy was welcomed with New Patriotic Party's flags and music has gathered reactions online.

In the video that was made public by a gentleman identified on Twitter as Derrick Amponsah, it appeared as though the residents took time to send a signal to NDC with the staged flags and music.

John Mahama himself was reportedly part of the convoy, although the video did not capture his face but only the fleet of NDC-branded vehicles.
