Deputy Minister of Information, Pius Enan Hadzide has fired a shot at former appointees in the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration claiming Former President John Dramani Mahama borrowed to build their stomachs instead of investing in the Ghanaian populace.

“They built infrastructure in their pockets and stomachs”, the Minister jabbed in an interview monitored by on Kumasi-based Fox FM.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during his tour in the Oti region announced that work on the 54-kilometre Jasikan to Dodo-Pepesu stretch of the Eastern Corridor Road will commence from the 3rd quarter of 2019, which is from July.

Former President John Mahama has also disclosed that contracts for the construction of the 54-kilometre Jasikan-Dodo Pepesu road has been inflated by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo accusing the President of falsifying facts and figures on road contracts awarded by his government before the NDC left office.

Responding to the former President’s allegations, Pious Enam Hadzide urged Ghanaians to treat Mr. Mahama’s claims with the contempt it deserves since the latter and his appointees did little in terms of infrastructure while in office to ameliorate the lives of Ghanaians.

“Former President John Mahama claims he has brought Dubai to Ghana for building the Kwame Nkrumah interchange. Go there and see when it rains. Every place gets flooded. Same to terminal three”, the Deputy Information Minister fumed.

“They borrowed huge money and use themselves to develop big stomachs", Hon. Pius Enam Hadzide mocked.
