    Snakes, grasscutters taken over my abandoned E-Blocks – Mahama

    Former President John Dramani Mahama has said the Akufo-Addo-led government has abandoned his uncompleted E-Block projects allowing snakes and grasscutters to take over the buildings instead of high school students.

    Mr Mahama lamented that the culture whereby projects are abandoned whenever there is a change of government was inimical to the growth and development of the country.

    Speaking at a durbar of chiefs as part of his SpeakOut tour of the Western North region, Mr Mahama said: “When there’s a change of government, it appears everything the old government did is bad and abandoned.

    “When we spoke of Free SHS, I promised and started to build 200 Day Secondary schools so that when we begin free SHS, all the students can get admission.

    “We completed some of the schools, we fully furnished some of them with desks and everything to accommodate students but the schools have been abandoned.

    “The uncompleted ones, too, have been abandoned in the bushes and snakes and grasscutters are the ones studying in them.”

    The NDC flag bearer noted that because of fewer schools and lack of infrastructure, the Akufo-Addo-led government has been forced to introduce the double-track system.

    In Mr Mahama’s opinion, the double-track system is not helpful, as “children spend three months on vacation and they forget everything they study during this period.”

    Mr Mahama has promised to review the Free SHS policy if elected president in the December polls.
