The National Democratic Congress (NDC), has slammed Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia for citing two communities and some projects said to be nonexistent in Nabdam, a district in the Upper East Region.
According to the party, some of the physical projects Bawumia claimed the NPP government had initiated across the country are "ghost projects".
Using a state’s delivery tracker website as a point of reference, Bawumia, according to the NDC, mentioned an emergency ward with a theatre at Nangodi (the Nabdam District’s capital).
Reacting to Bawumia’s claims, the NDC executives in the Nabdam Constituency told journalists at a news conference convened at Nangodi on Thursday, August 27 that two communities mentioned by the Vice President did not exist.
According to a report by Starrfm.com.gh, a number of the projects he flaunted as the NPP government’s achievements were either non-existent or were projects executed by the NDC in the Nabdam Constituency.
“For the purpose of the records, we wish to state unequivocally and without mincing words that the Emergency Ward at Nangodi was put up by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Nabdam, Mark Kurt Nawaane, in 2017 with an amount of Gh¢230,000.00.
"This is common knowledge even to any ordinary citizen in Nabdam, including every rational NPP faithful. Why must the NPP struggle to use the Honourable MP’s achievements for their political gain even without acknowledging same? If this is not a shame, then, the NPP must be living in a different world. What can the NPP say or boast of in terms of the construction of infrastructure on health in the Nabdam Constituency?"
The NDC officials took newsmen on a tour to show them evidence to back their statements.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, says whether he will take over from his boss, President Nana Akufo-Addo or not, is in the hands of the Almighty God.
According to the veep, he is focused on his work as vice president for now and is not thinking about becoming president for now.
Bawumia made the comment while responding to the question “Would you like to succeed your boss one day?” during an interview on Peace FM on August 26, 2020.
