All the road projects the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration commenced in the Volta Region have come to a standstill under the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration, former President John Dramani Mahama, has said.
Addressing a crowd of NDC supporters as part of the party’s Unity Walk in the region on Saturday, 9 June, Mr Mahama promised that a new NDC-led government will complete all those projects.
“I want to make a commitment to you that whoever leads a new NDC government come 2021 will be committed wholly to the development of the Volta Region. We have done a lot of work including the University of Health and Allied Sciences, one of the new universities with probably one of the best campuses in the whole of Ghana.
“We did a lot of work in the extension of electricity, water and road construction. All the roads that we started constructing have come to a standstill. My heart bleeds for the Eastern Corridor road. However long it takes, I assure you that the NDC government will come and finish that Eastern Corridor road,” he added.
Mr Mahama further stated: “…We are determined to find the needed resources to complete the Eastern Corridor roads. As I have heard it said among the Ewes, that which is important, you cook in an important pot.”
