Vice President for the Republic of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has described Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) as a monumental failure and inexplicable waste of taxpayer resources.
According to him, John Mahama should have realized that he was dealing with his people who are saddled by poverty and should have ensured that the projects can help in the alleviation of poverty.
“SADA programme under John Mahama was a monumental failure and an inexplicable waste of Taxpayers’ resources. And you’re dealing with our people, the poor people and you take money meant for their development for Guinea fowl flying scheme
He described the current President as a different type of leader hence the developmental projects that are scattered in various areas in the country.
The Vice President said because the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has the people of Ghana and especially Tatale at heart, there have been more developmental projects in Tatale in NPP’s 3 years than NDC’s eight years.
Dr.Mahamudu Bawumia noted that the road connecting Tamale to Tatale is in a deplorable state but hinted that a contract will be signed with work to start before the year ends indicating that it’s a world Bank-supported project so it will not stall.
“I travelled from Tamale through Yendi to get to Tatale and it’s no doubt that the road is one of the most important matters that is facing this district. But there is good news, In June this year, the world bank has advertised for the construction of this road and the tenders are being opened so before the year ends we will have a contractor on this road and this is a World Bank funding so it’s not like the contractor will start and government’s money will finish and he will stop and say the government is not paying me this one the world bank is going to pay, the money is there we will get this road done to the border to open up the border as well.” He added
