President Akufo Addo will later today (Friday) commission the Tema Motorway interchange project.
There’s however, political controversy over who should take credit
for the $57million project as the opposition National Democratic
Congress(NDC) has in a series of press conferences warned President
Akufo-Addo against taking credit for a project initiated by Ex-President
According to the NDC, Ex-President John Mahama secured full funding for the project before being voted out of power.
“Let it be known that the current President only saw the completion
of that project. Never anywhere did the NPP actually promise the project
So the President should do the right thing, the
must acknowledge the fact that the Tema Motorway Interchange is the baby
of the NDC he just inherited the construction phase of it. Even if he
installs a statue of himself at the Tema
Motorway interchange it will
not change history,” the Minority Spokesperson on Roads and Highways
Kwame Agbodza stated.
The NDC has demanded that ex-President John Mahama be invited to the commissioning ceremony.
