He stressed that the government has not supported the judiciary corruption investigations done by Anas’s Tiger Eye.
President Mahama stated this when he addressed thousands of supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Tamale on Saturday.
The former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mr. Martin Amidu, recently alleged that government sponsored Tiger Eye P1 in the investigation of the corruption in the judiciary.
“I just want to put it on record that government did not sponsor Anas in the judiciary corruption investigations,” the president emphasised.
President Mahama stated that he was not ready to engage Amidu in any debate, “I respect him as my elder brother whom I will never ever enter into any altercation with but it is important to correct that allegation, my elder got it wrong.”
Touching on development issues, he reaffirmed his government’s readiness to address the poor road network in the region.
The president assured the people in the region that four roads linking four district capitals in the area would be worked on before next year’s elections.
President Mahama also announced that about 1,000 youth would be trained on various skills under the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).
He stated that the recruitment process would start soon and that youth of the area should make themselves available.
According to the president the youth beneficiaries of the training would be given certificates after two years completion of the course to enable them seek for jobs.
President Mahama said the irregular power supply popularly known as dumsor would soon be a thing of the past as government was work assiduously to fix the problem once and for all.
He said that more than six hundred communities in the region have been connected to the national grid and that more communities were to be connected soon.
President Mahama said the government had rolled out many development projects in the region and that many more projects would be provided when he retain power for another four years term
He therefore entreated the people of the region to renew his mandate by coming out to vote massively for him in the 2016 general elections.
