Useless Mills Acclaims a Three-Unit Block

*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

"President Mills has challenged critics who claim his government has not achieved
anything since assuming office to open their eyes to see the numerous developmental
projects across the country. The President made the comments when he commissioned a
three unit classroom block under the Millennium City project at Mamprobi, a suburb
of Accra (Ghanaweb July 18, 2012)
