He claimed that all of his ideas and suggestions were "trivialized and thrown aside" for the project, leaving him with no choice but to resign from the board.

A section of the populace has questioned the relevance of the project with the Minority led by North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa embarking on a crusade for greater accountability and financial transparency.
