I won’t waste time on opposition lies and propaganda- President Mahama
President Mahama, says he remains focused in his bid for a second term and will not spare any moment responding to lies and propaganda from the opposition.
He said his works will speak for him come December 7.
President Mahama was addressing an enthusiastic crowd at the Nkwanta South district of the Volta region.
President Mahama said the government had given the contractor working on the Anyinase road in the Nkwanta North District two weeks to complete the project or have the contract terminated.
President Mahama asked the Minister of Roads and Highways to terminate the contract awarded to a Chinese contractor for the reconstruction of the Damanko – Nkwanta road because the contractor had not shown any seriousness in executing the work.
The project, he stated, could be given to a serious contractor for execution.
Nkwanta North district was created in 2004 but to date, the district assembly operates from rented offices because there is no permanent office accommodation.
President Mahama explained that before a new district is created permanent offices and seed money should be provided for the district but unfortunately the Kufuor administration did not make office accommodation available when it created the district.
He promised that the government will address the accommodation challenge, while also assuring them that a new district hospital would be constructed at Kpassa in his next term.
Describing the elections as a battle between truth and falsehood, President Mahama explained that the NDC stood for the truth.
However, the NDC’s main opponent, the NPP was only applying falsehood in an attempt to sway voters, he said.
President expressed the hope that the NPP’s tricks would not work.
When he told the party supporters that “I will enter the bush to shoot and kill the elephant,” the charged supporters cheered him on as he addressed them.
The Chief of Nkwanta, Nana Okufradom Kowura, said the people of Nkwanta are overwhelmed by the many projects government has executed in the area. He said the people of Nkwanta will show their appreciation to the President come December 7. Nana Kowura interpreted
