The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in its quest to respond to Former President John Dramani Mahama’s recent comments made while on his “Thank You” tour have accused him of peddling falsehood.
They also accused him of campaigning under the guise of a “Thank You” tour despite it being eight solid months after the December 2020 general elections.
General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu in press briefing laughed off comments from former President Mahama about the creation of the new regions citing that they were embarrassing. He debunked the claim by Mr Mahama that the new regions have not been developed to be operational.
“On developmental projects in the newly created regions, the Hon Minister for Local Government Decentralisation and Rural Development has been more than emphatic. He tells us that Ninety-six projects are currently ongoing with over 70% complete whilst a few have been handed over. 6 regional administration blocks, 24 blocks for decentralised departments, 66 staff bungalows. 30 motorbikes and 66 new vehicles have also been delivered. Furthermore, Agenda 111 will deliver regional and district hospitals as well,” parts of the NPP statement read.
Mr John Boadu further criticized the NDC for leaving no legacy to be abandoned as they claimed. He catalogued the projects under the NPP government which cannot be compared to any under the Mahama-led NDC government. He mentioned the 1D1F and Agenda 111. Also included were opportunities which include the attraction of multinational companies to set up offices in the country to create opportunities for Ghanaians. Examples given are the location of the African Continental Free Trade Secretariat in Ghana and the setting up of Google and Twitter offices in Ghana.

In response to the recent petition on electoral reforms that the NDC sent to the Electoral Commission, Mr John Boadu said “we the NPP are not going to play to the gallery. We are a serious political party and if the NDC want their petition to get the required response they should channel it through the right source”.
