Ghana’s Former President, John Dramani Mahama has jabbed his rival, President Akufo-Addo over what he termed as poor performance of his government.
The Former President has indicated that the Akufo-Addo led government are only interested in cutting sods for projects instead of completing projects.
John Mahama during his ”Thank You Tour” in the Eastern Region paid a courtesy call on the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs in Koforidua on Tuesday where he expressed to the traditional leaders about the Akufo-Addo led government’s decision to abandon several uncompleted projects started under his administration.
He indicated that it is such a bad initiative for Akufo-Addo to abandon projects by the past government. He stated,

“If you go to other places, there are many of such hospitals that have been abandoned. I’m happy to note that the Somanya Hospital has been completed but then it needs to be operationalised as quickly as possible.
“If some have been finished, at least, let them start working while you bring in the extra 111 or if some were ongoing, complete them and add the 111 hospitals. Unfortunately, it looks like there’s more attention in cutting sod for the new 111 hospitals than there is for completing the hospitals that are already under construction and, so, these are things that I think we need to draw attention to…”
