Former President John Dramani Mahama has advised President Akufo-Addo to put on hold any new projects he plans to roll out and complete all abandoned projects.
He said this while interacting with the media during a visit to the Volta region.
“It’s a major problem; everywhere you go in the country you find projects left by previous governments that were not continued. That is why we said that when we come [back] into office, for the first year, we were not going to start new projects; we were going to use the resources to continue and finish all the projects that have been abandoned by previous governments,” Mahama stated.
“You don’t go building a new secondary school when you have a secondary school that has been abandoned. I think that is what [the] government should do; suspend new projects, spend the resources, and finish ongoing and existing projects.”
