President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has dismissed allegations that his administration has abandoned projects initiated by the previous government.
The President described the allegations as “vile propaganda” by his political opponents to deceive Ghanaians and urged the public to reject them.
In a radio interview as part of his tour of the Greater Accra Region, President Akufo-Addo gave a catalogue of projects initiated as far as the era of former President Kufuor, abandoned by the Mills-Mahama governments, and completed by his administration.
He said his government had completed roads initiated by previous administrations in Ho, Kete Krachie, Bawku, including the Eastern Corridor Roads.
On health, he pointed out that hospitals in the Ga East, Wa, Twifo Praso, Upper West, Konongo, and the Euroget Project initiated by his predecessors had been completed, while others were at various stages of completion.
President Akufo-Addo also spoke on a wide range of issues on the economy, governance, corruption, among others, and expressed satisfaction with the success of his administration since it took over in January 2017.
President Akufo-Addo began his tour of the region with the inspection of the Agbogbloshie reclaimed land site in the Ablekuma Constituency before visiting the Onion Market at Adjen Kotoku in the Amasaman Constituency.
As at press time, the President was interacting with the onion sellers, who previously occupied the Agbogbloshie land site.
