'Where are the factories and dams?' Mahama asks Akufo-Addo
Where are the factories? Where are the dams? Where the warehouses? Where is the one million dollars per constituency? These are the questions that former President John Dramani Mahama is asking the Akufo-Addo government.
Addressing delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Tatale constituency, ahead of the party’s flagbearership race, Mr Mahama after crisscrossing the constituencies and districts of the Northern Region for three days as part of his five-day tour of the region to interact with NDC delegates, he has yet to see a single factory from the One District One factory NPP manifesto promise.
The former President says the lesson in the unfulfilled promises is that it is easier for promises to be made but not kept.
“It is easier to give political lectures on the economy than to manage the economy”, he said.
Mr Mahama further said “any Economics lecturer can give lectures on the economy. But not every lecturer can manage the economy”.
