I Will Complete All Unfinished NPP Projects When Elected President Again – John Mahama Vows
Former President of the Republic of Ghana and flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has assured Ghanaians that if re-elected in 2024, he will complete all unfinished projects, including those initiated by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
His party, he claims, is a patriotic and well-meaning political party that believes in continuity and will not waste taxpayer money. Such projects are funded by taxpayers, according to Mahama, and abandoning them would be unjust.
The former President stated this during a speech at the NDC Greater Accra Regional Zongo Caucus Stakeholders Forum on September 16, 2023, in Accra. The promise came after he accused the current administration of ignoring landmark projects initiated by his party before leaving office in 2016, particularly in Zongo communities.
“I promise that when we arrive, we will resume all abandoned projects.” Even projects that the current NPP government does not complete, we will continue and complete because they are funded by taxpayers’ money, and abandoning them wastes Ghanaians’ money.
“When we were sharing the E-Blocks, we assigned a number of them to the Zongo and Muslim communities, but many of those schools have since closed.” We have accomplished a lot in our Zongos, but we are not the type to show up with a paper and read. Our people can see for themselves what the NDC accomplished while we were in office, he added.
The forum brought together representatives from various Zongo and Muslim sects and institutions within and outside the party to share their experiences and discuss topics of mutual interest in order to foster social connections and a sense of community.
