Former President John Mahama has said President Nana Akufo-Addo and his government are now going about grabbing the littlest thing that passes for infrastructure to show to Ghanaians as part of their achievements even though in opposition, they ridiculed infrastructural development.
Speaking at Ho West in the Volta Region where he has been on a four-day tour, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) recalled: “In 2016, when I was talking about the value of infrastructure, my friends on the other side said: ‘We don’t eat infrastructure’, ‘we don’t eat roads’”.
“That was what they said” but “today, I can see a scramble to grab even KVIPs and any infrastructure and tout it as an achievement”, Mr Mahama told supporters of the biggest opposition party.
To settle the matter, the former President dared his opposite number to a debate.
“…It’s easy to settle the issue of infrastructure”, he said, adding: “After all, the President said this election is going to be an election of track records; comparing his track records to my track records”.
“We can settle it easily: Let’s have a debate between the two of us”,he challenged the President.
