We will use abandoned resources to finish abandoned and ongoing projects – Mahama

Presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama, has announced that if elected in the 2024 general elections, his administration will prioritize the completion of existing projects.

He emphasized that it would be more prudent to allocate resources towards finishing ongoing and stalled initiatives rather than starting new ones.

“I have said that we are not going to be in a hurry to start new projects. Whatever resources that we have, we are going to use it to continue and finish abandoned and ongoing projects so that we can start making use of them,” he said.

Mr. Mahama made these remarks during a townhall meeting in Wa over the weekend as part of his two-day tour of the Upper West Region under the theme “Building the Ghana We Want.” He addressed various groups, including labor unions, emphasizing his commitment to completing existing projects.

Specifically, Mr. Mahama mentioned the stalled projects at the SD Dombo University for Business and Integrated Development Studies (SDD-UBIDS).

He pledged to finish these projects if elected president in 2025.

He recalled the late President John Evans Atta Mills’ promise of three key projects for the Wa campus of the University for Development Studies (UDS): an ultra-modern library, a lecture hall complex, and a students’ hostel facility.

While he initiated these projects during his presidency in 2013, they have since stalled.

“I know that all these projects are very important to facilitate teaching and learning in that university.

And so, when we come we will continue those projects and complete them so that you can make use of them,” he said.

Former President Mahama expressed disappointment over the lack of construction on the Wa-Tumu-Bolgatanga road, which has been neglected by successive governments.

He emphasized the road’s significance as it connects two regional capitals, providing a crucial shortcut for travelers between Wa and Bolgatanga.

Mahama pledged to prioritize the construction of this road if re-elected as president.
