Spokesperson for the Vice President, Dr. Gideon Boako, has clapped back at the National Democratic Congress. (NDC) for asserting that the Akufo-Addo administration was parading infrastructural projects that do not exist as part of its achievements.

According to Dr. Boako, the 26 flagged projects by the NDC as ghost projects may be as a result of “data input errors”, when the list of projects was being compiled.

His comments come after Sammy Gyamfi accused the NPP government of deceiving Ghanaians as the website for tracking its project had captured a number of ghost projects.

Speaking on Citi FM's Eyewitness News, Dr. Boako argued that “when the data was uploaded on the tracker, there may have been some matters of error.”

Using the bridge project in Tano North as an example, Dr. Boako said that was inputted wrongly.

He, however, stated that the government will have to “cross-check with the tracker to attain the veracity of the claims the NDC has made.
