President Mahama living his words – Kofi Adams

Campaign Coordinator of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Kofi Adams says President John Dramani is living up to every word he uttered.

Justifying President Mahama’s ‘Accounting to the People’ tour which he wrapped up in the northern region recently, Mr. Adams said the government has chalked up monumental achievements in the provision of social infrastructure.

“In the Upper West, for instance, President Mahama commissioned a major water treatment plant that will be supplying water to a lot of communities that have never seen treated water since independence, Mr. Adams said pointing out that the sad incident where residents there used to struggle with cattle over the source of water would be consigned to history.

He identified the commissioning of the largest library project ever in Ghana as an avenue will give opportunity to both young and old to have access to materials that will enhance their learning process in the Upper West region.

During the tour also, President Mahama commissioned a basic school for the Prison Service and inspected ongoing road projects.

“In Upper East, the president also commissioned another major water treatment and storage facility which will supply water to Bawku and its environs.

“Then also huge irrigation dam project, when completed, will provide more than 5,000 jobs. What this means is that regularly there would be water supply for agriculture.

“The President is doing roads, building the airports and cargo facilities to move farm produce to the markets.

In the words of Mr. Adams, President Mahama stands tall when we take the books of records in the provision of health facilities, maintaining that the NDC government has commenced work in building regional hospitals to serve as referral centres.

He was emphatic that the 8 years tenure of the NPP administration did not add to the number of regional hospitals or upgrade the existing ones handed over in 2001.

He said,” seriously the President in almost every district in Ghana has something to point to in this short period that he has been president.”

Mr. Adams thus wants Ghanaians to judge President Mahama by the records and give him four more years to continue working.

“We are not satisfied by the level of development now. There are other communities that need water, others need electricity, roads and hospitals.

“The second term will see him work more, “the Campaign Coordinator added. He is, therefore, warning critics to stop the blanket assertion that President Mahama has done nothing.

Touching on the NDC campaign, Mr. Adams expressed satisfaction that the 15-man team constituted will coordinate things to deliver a resounding victory in November general elections.

He asked all party faithful to rally together and deliver the maximum votes for President Mahama.
