Former President John Dramani Mahama has taken a swipe at the ruling government, accusing it of abandoning projects in the Volta Region.
The former president believes various projects started by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government have been discontinued by the Nana Addo-led administration.
“Projects started by the NDC have been abandoned and others that are to be completed in the region are being done at a slow pace. For some of the projects, this government asked contractors to stop work”, he added.
He identified projects such as the Sokode-Ho road, Jasikan-Hohoe, the interchange at the roundabout at UHAS and the Volivo bridge over the southern Volta river among other projects he believes had been abandoned.
Speaking at the grand durbar marking the culmination of the Asogli Yam Festival in Ho, the former President stated that the next NDC government would place a strong emphasis on the region’s development needs and complete all unfinished projects.
“But I make a commitment of the NDC that, God willing and thanks to your votes in 2025, all these projects will resume”, he concluded.
