Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says the Nana Addo led administration has ensured that all two hundred and seventy-five constituencies in Ghana have seen projects been done under the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
According to Dr Bawumia, there was little or no projects undertaken by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) under the Mahama administration.
The Vice President who was speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen show on September 30, 2020, said NDC’s projects only existed in their Greenbook. He said when you visit areas where they had indicated there were projects, there was nothing there.
“There is no constituency that can say we the NPP have not done a project there, under NDC they never saw that. It is not about Greenbook, we are talking about physical projects, go around and check and you will see for yourself”.
In August this year, Dr Bawumia said the government has initiated 17,334 infrastructure projects since its assumption of office in 2017.
He made these comments at the Government Result Fair at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences in Accra.
“We have completed 8,746 and 8,588 are ongoing,” Dr Bawumia said as he addressed the gathering.
He explained that these projected were in agriculture, education, energy, health, housing, industrial, market, railway, road safety and security, youth and development infrastructure.
Dr Bawumia emphasised the government’s commitment to ensure the even distribution of resources to some remote communities and as a result, many of these projects had been cited across the breadth of the country.
He described it as a broad base wide-scale infrastructure taking place in a very district rather than having a few big infrastructure projects localised in a few cities in the country.
The Vice President announced an online portal: deliverytracker.gov.gh, that serves as a database to track all developmental projects currently under construction, courtesy the NPP administration.
