The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in his latest address to John Dramani Mahama, former president and flagbearer of the NDC has outlined what the NPP government has used the various monies they’ve borrowed in their 4 years in office for.
Known to be one of the major critics of the NPP government, John Dramani Mahama during his tour in the Volta Region argued that despite the excessive borrowing attitude by the Akufo-Addo led government, there is nothing to show for it.
He said, “In four years, the Akufo-Addo government has borrowed more than ¢140 billion, so the simple question Ghanaians should ask is, what have you done with the money? Where are the schools, roads, electricity, water, hospitals, and harbours?”
According to him, between 2013 – 2016, his administration borrowed a little over ¢54 billion, and the record is there for all to see in the region of roads, schools, healthcare infrastructure, electricity, water, harbours and airport terminals, among others.
But in a sharp rebuttal to John Mahama in response to his claims of the NPP government has little to show for, despite their wide margin of loans taken, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has outlined the Akufo-Addo led administration has done with the loans they’ve taken.
Taking to Facebook to address John Mahama’s “what have you done with the money?” question, the 57-year-old economist indicated that “The NPP in its first term has undertaken more infrastructure projects than any other Government in its first term in the Fourth Republic.”
