The Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Kwaku Asomah Kyeremeh, has described former President John Dramani Mahama’s ”ghost project” response as a mockery of the century.
President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, alleged that projects initiated in the Region by the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) government especially roads are nowhere to be found.
President Mahama during the 2016 electioneering campaign, accused Nana Addo, then presidential hopeful of the New Patriotic Party), of not seeing the ‘rehabilitated roads because he was sleeping as he travelled to do his campaign throughout the country.
In response to the President’s statement, a press release from the office of the former President expressed displeasure in the statement.
According to the statement, it is regrettable that President Akufo-Addo has yet again failed to exhibit candour in his speech, this time to the Chiefs and people of Nkoranza in Brong Ahafo Region. It is even more worrying when there is overwhelming evidence of the massive investment made in the provision of various projects for the people of Ghana.
However, in an interview with Kaakyire Ofori Ayim on Atinka AM Drive Tuesday, Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Asumah Kyeremeh described the Presidents response as a mockery of the century adding that there is enough evidence to prove that the projects are indeed ghost projects.
According to him, President Mahama and the NDC government should even be grateful to President Akufo Addo and his team for completing projects started by the NPP.
“Nana Akufo Addo understands the philosophy of continuing projects started by previous governments. We can list projects that the NDC government abandoned when they took power from the then Kufuor administration in 2009 till we came back to power”, he said.
