I believe Mahama’s promise to complete stalled projects before starting new ones – Franklin Cudjoe

The Founding President of IMANI Centre for Policy and Education says he believes former President, John Mahama’s promise not to construct new projects until existing ones are completed and put to use.

Mr Franklin Cudjoe said the former President is sensitive to the country’s current debt situation. 

According to him, the country’s paranormal debt situation is worrying.

“John Mahama is sensitive to our paranormal debt situation. He says he won’t start new projects until thousands of stalled ones over decades are completed. I believe him.”

Former President John Mahama has said his next administration will not construct new projects until existing ones are completed and put to use. 

Mr Mahama insisted the current economic crisis requires new ways of doing things other than the usual. 

The former President said an inventory will be taken of all ongoing projects with strict timelines to ensure their completion to prevent the wastage of scarce resources. 

Engaging delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Tano South in the Ahafo Region, Mr Mahama said the interest and needs of Ghanaians will be paramount to his next administration. 

“With the economic crisis that we currently have, by the time the NDC comes into power in 2025, we are still going to have a restricted fiscal space because of the economic difficulties. 

“A new NDC will not be in a hurry to start new projects. What we will do is that the projects that have been ongoing and have been abandoned and uncompleted, we will take an inventory of all of them and with the little resources, we will dedicate it to finishing them.”

Mr Mahama accused President Akufo-Addo of abandoning many of the projects started during his government’s tenure.
