Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has said the dams the Akufo Addo led government have constructed are rather dugouts that are not fit for purpose.
Speaking at the Manwe Naa’s palace in the Upper West Region as part of his campaign tour, former president Mahama bemoaned the poor nature of the dams insisting even some few cows can finish the water in it.
According to him, these so called dams have only been a monumental waste of taxpayers’ money.
“The promises sounded very good and Ghanaians said let’s give them a try. Today the dams that they talked about are dugouts, they are not even proper dugouts because most of our dugouts are able to keep water during the dry season.
“These dugouts when the Minority went to inspect them in January-February most of them were dry…So the one-village one-dam has been a monumental waste of taxpayers’ money,” he stated.
