The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Flagbearer, John Mahama says he won’t abandon developmental projects started by the Akufo-Addo administration if he wins the 2020 elections.
According to him, it is wasteful for administrations to abandon projects started by predecessor government.
“We will continue because our taxpayers’ money has been put into those projects and policies, and so we will continue with them. And we will introduce ours too in addition to what we will come and continue. And I think that is how it should be for every government,” Mr. Mahama said at the maiden edition of the Young African Leaders Summit in Accra.
His call comes at the back of the former President pointing towards the Volta Region as evidence of his similar comments concerning abandoned projects in other regions.
According to Mr. Mahama, schools and road projects initiated during his time as President have been left unattended to in the region.
Speaking to market women at Sogokope in the Volta Region, Mr. Mahama insisted that the government has failed Ghanaians.
“All the projects have come to a standstill because the NDC left office. The Community secondary school has come to a standstill. All the road projects have come to a standstill.” he said.
