Desist from abandoning inherited projects …Dormaahene bemoans

Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II, the Paramount Chief of Dormaa Traditional Area, has bemoaned situations where governments abandoned projects they inherited which stalls progress, growth and development.

He explained that successive governments should endeavour to complete inherited projects so that beneficiary communities do not suffer for such unfortunate decisions.

Osagyefo Badu slammed the politicisation of critique aimed at getting the government to sit up and do what was right to the benefit of the citizenry and accelerate socioeconomic development.

Addressing a durbar of chiefs and people of Asunsu Number One in the Dormaa Central Municipality, he also decried the abandonment of projects inherited by successive governments and openly expressed support and assistance for groups and individuals pushing for political probity, transparency and accountability through different channels.

Osagyefo Badu, who is the President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs, specifically cited the case of the Saglemi Housing project started under the late Professor Atta Mills administration but had been abandoned since which he described as“sad and unfortunate for the project to be abandoned and made to waste away years after construction when workers and millions of homeless Ghanaians can live in them.

“When you speak your mind about this, they say you are engaging in politics however,citizens have a key role in speaking up and pushing for probity, transparency, accountability, action on corruption, other ills that bedevil democratic governance and development.

“I will lead the campaign to fan the flames of activism, probity, transparency and accountability to keep leaders on their toes so that some meaningful, significant and appreciable level of progress, growth and development are seen across the country so such activism are in the right direction and must not be seen and portrayed as insults against certain political and traditional leaders,” Osagyefo Badu postulated. –GNA
