President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has once again taken a swipe at former President John Dramani Mahama over the construction of some interchanges in the country.
According to the President, his government is building three interchanges with an amount of $289 million, while the erstwhile Mahama administration built only one interchange with almost the same amount.
President Akufo-Addo made the comparison when he commissioned the four-tier Pokuase Interchange on Friday, July 9, 2021.
“It is important to put on record that the original contract design was for a three-tier interchange, however through efficient management by my government the interchange was modified to a four-tier interchange within the same contract sum.”
“Indeed, $289 million has been used by the Akufo-Addo government to construct three interchanges (at Pokuase, Obetsebi Lamptey, and Tamale) as opposed to $260 million used by the Mahama government to construct only the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange.
These are further examples of the fact that we in the NPP are good protectors of the public purse,” he argued.
