Akufo-Addo's 'inferior' dams are my 'dugouts' – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama Former President John Dramani Mahama

The dams being built under the One Village-One Dam policy of the Akufo-Addo administration lack quality, former President John Dramani Mahama has said.

According to the flag bearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2020 polls, the dams get destroyed whenever it rains, an indication of their inferiority.

Mr Mahama made these comments when he visited the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency where he interacted with the chiefs and people of Jindabor as part of his tour of the Savanna Region.

He later interacted with the people of Gbiniyiri, also in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency, along with the party’s National Chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.

Mr Mahama indicated that the current government was copying a similar initiative he started during his term in office.

He said: “Always remember that when you deceive people, the reality catches up with you. By God’s grace, the NPP came to power and they have started building what they call dams. It turns out that the dams they were talking of are the same dugouts that we were digging under the John Mahama administration”.

“Their dams are even of inferior quality because when it rains, the dams are breaking and the water is flowing away.”
