Politics of Tuesday, 6 September 2016
Flagbearer of the United Front Party (UFP) Nana Agyenim Boateng, aka ‘Gyataba’ has rubbished Akuffo Addo’s one village, one dam policy.
He has therefore asked the opposition leader to be more realistic in dealing with Ghanaians.
Speaking on Agyenkwa Fm’s morning show, Gyataba added that the policy may create filth in the country.
´Taking the Ashanti region into consideration, if Akuffo Addo is to implement his Dam policy, i wonder how the region will look like. the whole country will be swallowed up with Dam’ he said.
Akufo-Addo has promised to set up an irrigation dam in every village in the northern part of Ghana should he win the 7 December polls to become President.
Speaking to the Bolgatanga Traditional Council in the Upper East Region about his plans for Ghana’s agriculture Akufo-Addo said: “As far as this part of our world is concerned, I want to go further and talk about one village one dam.”
Mr Akufo-Addo said his ‘1 village, 1 dam’ policy is to help Ghana become self-sufficient in food production and even become an exporter of food to the sub-region.
Deputy general secretary of the NDC, Mr. Koku Anyidoho has also asked Nana Akufo-Addo, to wake up from his sleep and stop the dreaming fake promises of providing one dam for every village in Ghana.
Speaking to the media on the recent promise made by the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, that, he will create one dam in every village across the country, the Deputy General Secretary said Nana Addo is still sleeping and dreaming, that is why he is making so many impracticable promises.
The presidential candidate for the GCPP Dr. Henry Lartey says, Akufo-Addo’s promise to build 1 dam in each village of the Northern region is an avenue to breed mosquitoes.
”Does Nana Addo want to breed mosquitoes in these villages? Have they put in an infrastructure for feeder roads? Have they put in infrastructure to help farmers? What do they want to grow there? Just because you want to win an election, you are promising 1 village, 1 dam. This is not feasible. It is a hoodwink.”Dr. Lartey said.
