The Ashanti Regional National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described the just ended Presidential tour in the Ashanti Region by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo as a waste of taxpayer’s money in the region.
According to the NDC, the President carried the entourage of about 200 people and 70 V8s from Accra to inspect ordinary and petty projects which were within the domain of Assembly Members.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, 14/10/19 the Ashanti Regional Communication Officer of the NDC, Abass Nurudeen said, the President failed to showcase his so-called achievements to people of the Ashanti region with his 3-day tour.
He said, the NPP promised to build factories under 1D1F but has turned to be the biggest scam that has ever been perpetrated on Ghanaians.
Abass Nurudeen said the NPP government as a result of their failure has now turned to commission private companies as 1D1F projects.
“The Miro Forestry Company Limited which was commissioned by the president at Sekyere Afram Plains was established in 2010 by a private company, so NPP is now turning private companies to state properties”
“We in the NDC thought President Akufo Addo was an expert only in the plagiarism of speeches, we never knew he plagiarizes projects too”
The NDC is, however, calling on the President to immediately answer the following questions in his attempt to expropriate this particular project.
They questioned that how on earth can a private company that was established in 2010 all of a sudden metamorphosed into a one district, one dam(1D1F) program that supposedly started in 2017?
Again, what has become of the promise by President Akufo-Addo to build a brand-new Corn Flakes Factory for the people of Sekyere Afram Plains?
He stressed that..“A house built with saliva will definitely be collapsed by the early morning dew”.
