The spokesperson for former President John Mahama and former Deputy Minister of Transport, Joyce Bawah Mogtari has charged the government to do the needful by celebrating the benefit of projects of the previous administration even if it won’t acknowledge the vision of the former president.

Her calls are in response to photos and videos of the new terminal building at the Kotoka International Airport, an initiative of the Mahama-led administration which had been lauded by a section of Ghanaians as another major infrastructural facility.

A statement issued and  signed said: “Ghanaians, not only the traveling public, who have seen photos and videos or gone past the new terminal building at the Kotoka International Airport continue to celebrate the completion of yet another major infrastructural facility.

“A number of reforms that began saw the gradual upgrade of existing facilities including new baggage carousels, customs and immigration booths and e-immigration kiosks and a general upgrade of the existing terminals.

“These improvements in line with a national vision promoted by former President Mahama and implemented by the Ministry of Transport have ensured an enhancement of the passenger experience of travelers.

“The ongoing modernisation effort is what has also culminated today in the completed Terminal 3 building at the Kotoka International Airport.

“For aviation watchers, this is a major infrastructural addition for a country that has been working to develop the Accra airport into a hub for the sub-region.

“As we get ready for its eventual inauguration in October and the facility inaugurated for use, the Akufo-Addo-led administration has begun, rather sadly, an unfortunate attempt to run down the project and spread false claims against the initiator of the project, former President Mahama.

“One would have expected this government to commend the NDC administration of President Mahama for its vision and foresight, for actualising what would have probably remained a dream for many more years.

“But just as they have been doing since assuming office in January 2017, the Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration is rather talking down Mr. Mahama’s established legacy again, ahead of the project’s inauguration.

“It has become fashionable and gradually defining the character of this government not to celebrate the successful completion of projects, the benefits to the people, enormous impact on job creation and other business opportunities, but disseminate false information about the actual cost of the project.” – mynewsgh.com
