Bawumia Narrates How 1V1D Ended Communal Fights



Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has touted government’s one village one dam initiative, describing how it brought an end to communal fights in the Northern Ghana.

Speaking on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ morning show, Bawumia responded to flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama’s claims that the dams do not exist.

He stated, “recently, the former President John Mahama said the One Village, One Dam hasn’t materialized but there was a documentary on one of the Television stations where they went to Bole, his own Constituency and Ten dams were functional and people are using these dams for irrigation and so on and they are very useful and there are talks about how it has saved communal fights over water in the constituency, fulani herdsmen the fight over water is very high in the North and so these dams are providing water and you should know that some people use tube wells to irrigate farms so the One Village, One Dam has helped a lot of farmers and then people who need water for their cattle, to wash cloth and to build houses and so on during the dry season. I’ve followed the various testimonies of the farmers but when you sit in Accra you may not understand the impact these dams are, you have to go down and see”.

According to Bawumia, a total of 435 One Village, One Dam contracts have been awarded out of which 372 have been completed with 63 ongoing in some constituencies in the North.

He charged critics of the Akufo Addo led government to move to the grounds and see the ongoing and already established works for themselves.
