Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Builsa South Constituency in the Upper East Region, Dr. Clement Apaak has accused the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) of clandestinely converting their promised one village one dam into one village one dug out, saying it is tantamount to deception.
According to him, the NDC has raised the issue of the NPP’s government’s new variation of dams to include dugouts when indeed the party in its manifesto never talked about dugouts.
Dr. Apaak who was speaking on Accra based okay Fm and monitored by BestNewsGH.com accused the current administration of failing in almost everything it promised the generality of the Ghanaian people.
‘’We have actually made the case that we are making, which is that we cannot trust this government when it tries to deny or to parry off allegations that we make legitimately. We raised the issue of the obese size of government, 110 ministers, then we raised issues about the poor and lackadaisical implementation of the Free Senior High School policy, then there is this issue about this government’s new variation of dams to include dugouts, when indeed the NPP in its manifesto never talked about dugouts and we raised issues about the lack of seriousness in the fight against corruption where upon by and large those alleged to have been engaged in corruption are cleared. These are not insults. We are not insulting the president. We are not blind and we are not death’’ he said.
He explained their concerns are legitimate and that government must get serious at fulfilling the promises it made to the people of the country.
‘’We have the right to raise issues and draw attention to the people who are being paid, who are being fed and clothed by the tax payers money, to improve the conditions of the people of this country’’ he added.
