- Dr. Bawumia has assured that despite delays in building a dam in the villages of the northern region, the project shall take off soon
- During the campaign buildup to the 2016 elections, the NDC had made mockery of the “One Village-One Dam” policy
The New Patriotic Party government lead by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will deliver on promises as accordance to an assurance by the Vice President.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, however asked that Ghanaians in the northern regions of Ghana manage their expectations until later.
He noted that all the irrigation dams tha
had been promised by the NPP to village in northern Ghana would be built despite the delays.
On Friday, the VEEP, speaking at the Bolgatanga Central Mosque revealed that the delays in building the dams are due to the rainy season.
“ After the rains are over, we will start the ‘one village one dam’ because we cannot start digging dams in the rainy season”, he assured the crowd gathered at the mosque to catch a glimpse of him.
When the NPP made the promise of “ One Village-One Dam” during the campaign buildup to the 2016 elections, the National Democratic Congress make mockery of it.
The NDC had then believed that the policy was unachievable as constructing a dam in the northern regions would be a costly venture.
