The ex-President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has lamented on the discontinuing nature of President Nana Akufo-Addo towards projects he started.
As part of the former President’s ‘Thank you tour’ he paid a courtesy call on the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs in Koforidua on 12th October 2021 the three times Presidential candidate of the NDC bemoaned to the chiefs on how Nana Addo’s administration has abandoned most of the unfinished projects that was started during his term of office.
To him he says this is very worrying an something he cannot avoid talking about.
”Nananom, there’s a very worrying development that I cannot avoid talking about and that is the issue of abandoned projects”, he said.
He noted that ”governments are enjoined to continue the projects began by their predecessors”.
”Unfortunately it will appear that after 2016 , the new government that came has either advertently or inadvertently refused to work on many projects that the previous government started and I can name so many of them: there are road projects, hospital projects school projects”, he stated.
Citing an example he said; I know my brother Kwahumanhene’s jurisdiction, the famous Abetifi Hospital is crying for continuation and completion.
”If you go to other places there are many of such hospitals that have been abandoned”, he cried.
He however said that he is happy to note that the Somanya Hospital has been completed but it needs to be operationalized quickly.
