The scale of infrastructural work going on under President John Dramani Mahama is “humongous, incredible, ambitious and audacious,” Chief Executive Officer and publisher of Ovation International magazine, Chief Dele Momodu, has said.
The Nigerian journalist and businessman, who has been residing in Ghana for over a decade, heaped these praises on the Mahama-led administration on Inside Politics on Class91.3FM on Thursday, August 11.
According to the business mogul, the future of Ghana is assured thanks to the infrastructural development being undertaken by the Mahama administration, adding that news about Ghana’s development had gone viral.
“I can tell you very confidently that the scale of what President Mahama is doing is so humongous, it’s so incredible, it’s so ambitious, and it’s so audacious. …I have travelled extensively, I have taken pictures, I am a journalist, my job is to report, I don’t embellish, I don’t do Photoshop. Even when I photograph celebrities, I tell my people: ‘Leave them naturally’, we will show the world what is going on in Ghana, and we are already showing a bit of it on social media,” he stated.
“I am telling you Ghanaians that my friends are calling me from outside Ghana, in Nigeria, our people are telling our leaders: ‘Go to Ghana’ and my friends say: ‘Why don’t you invite your friends in government to come and see what is going on in Ghana?’ Someone in Sierra Leone’s post I saw on Facebook said: ‘While our leader is building roads, come and see the kind of hospital that [President] Mahama is building in Ghana.’
This thing is going viral, they cannot believe this is Ghana and some people wanted us to hide that, in fact, some people even suggested that these things that I am showing, why didn’t I wait until after the elections? And I said: ‘What is the best time to show the good works of a man? Is it not when he has exams that you bring out all the tutorials, all the course works? That’s what we are doing and it’s for Ghanaians to judge.”
Dele Momodu, however, added that: “There is no way I have said you must go and vote one way or the other. All I am saying is that the man who is there now, nobody should tell us that he is not working. And the person who wants to come has the right to say: ‘I know better and I can do better…’ but I am telling you the scale of work that I see, the future of Ghana is assured and I have no doubt about it.”
