The Vice Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC),
Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang has expressed concern about the huge
number of projects abandoned by the government all over the country.
She says it is unacceptable that so many projects started by the NDC
administration have been left to rot.
Speaking to journalists during a visit to the abandoned Community Day Senior
High School at Asempaneye in the Joaboso Constituency as part of her tour
of the Western North Region, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang said projects funded by
tax payers must not be left to deteriorate simply because there is a change of
“We have seen gravels over-grown by weeds and shrubs, iron rods that have
disappeared. If we have to definitely return to this project, we have to do
revaluation and spend more money and all of this cannot be very helpful to us
as a nation”, she said.
Describing the situation as unfortunate, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang said the habit
of abandoning projects that were started under a particular administration
impedes progress and must be stopped.
“It is not as if we just cut the sod and abandoned it. We started, the
foundations are done, the columns are being raised. You can all see the
images beside and behind me”, she pointed out to the journalists.
