Netizens react to the video of the abandoned Saglemi Housing Project
The video sparked several reactions among Ghanaians, who commented on the post to share their thoughts. YEN.com.gh compiled some responses below.
EMPEROR SELASi DOE said:
What did the NPP do about it, and why were they not arrested? If the rest of the money is with NDC, why are they not arrested yet? NPP is a failure.
Hmmm, this is Ghana oo. We don't like a president who is for development but the ones that loot state coffers. Time will tell .
Frederick P. Mills remarked:
Let's be serious as a country for once. Equating NPP to NDC is wrong. This project is near completion. What stops NPP from continuing its use?
GLORIA DZOKOTO opined:
Crazy and wicked leaders, but the youth refuse to see the truth.
Say something better. What you are saying is not necessary.
4 abandoned mega projects that could transform Ghana if completed
In an earlier story, YEN.com.gh wrote about abandoned projects in Ghana that could put Ghana on the path to development if they were completed. Seeing enormous structures like the Saglemi Housing Project and the Ho Youth Center left in disrepair is upsetting. Given the high construction cost, it may not be easy to restore such large projects fully.
