Nana Addo doesn't even know what a dam is to even promise one - Prez. Mahama

According to President John Dramani Mahama, the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo does not know the inner workings of some of the things he promises.

Speaking at Nandom in the Upper West Region, Mahama, flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress, accused the NPP of using promises that lacked merit as political gimmicks only targeted at garnering votes.

He thus called on Nana Addo to clearly spell out to the people how realistic his promises are.

"It is easy to promise, when you are watching a football match from the stands, you can score as many goals you want with your mouth. Your mouth can score goals easily but when you are on the football park, it is not as easy to score.

"So you stand outside and say, 'if it were me I would chest the ball, I would put my one leg on it and I would beat this and that player, but you have never been tried and tested," he said.

He went on to question Nana Addo's knowledge of what a "dam" is.

"Can't tell a dug out from a dam, a barrage dam or an irrigation dam?...what does one village one dam mean? You say one village one factory, what does that mean? Is it a gari or bread making factory?," he quizzed.

One of Nana Addo's main campaign messages is how he intends to built a dam in every village of the three Northern Regions, a factory in every constituency, a theatre for all 10 regions of Ghana, free senior high school, creation of an additional region among others. However, John Mahama told the electorate present that Nana Addo was just going on a promising spree and could not show the type of factory he intends to put up adding the gari, bread and its related factories have already been put up by his government.

The President also said it does not make any sense for his opponent to go promising a million dollar per constituency.
