Akufo-Addo will continue my projects - Mahama

President John Dramani Mahama has expressed confidence that the incoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) government under President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo, will not truncate ongoing projects initiated by the outgoing National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.

“I'm assured by Nana Akufo-Addo's assurances that he'll continue the ongoing projects,” Mr Mahama said in his last State of the Nation address in Parliament on Thursday, 5 January, in accordance with article 67 of the 1992 constitution.

Mr Mahama will be handing over power to Mr Akufo-Addo on Saturday, 7 January.

The President-elect has already expressed his commitment to continue projects initiated by the outgoing administration. Mr Mahama said such continuity was necessary adding that “the well-being of the people [of Ghana] must come first in all things”.

He was of the view that “regardless of whose tenure under which the visions are realised, the success belongs to Ghana”.
