A communication team member of the governing New Patriotic Party in the Damongo constituency, Kanyiti Saburu Kantama (Alhaji NABCO) has intimated that Ghana’s Former President, John Dramani Mahama has no major legacy to show in the Region where he hails from to his name as then President of the Republic of Ghana.
He asserted that unlike Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo who as a President can be credited for the creation of the Savannah Region and other major developmental projects on which same can not be said about the former president John Mahama.
Amongst others, he cataloged the construction of the Bunjai-Fufulso road, the creation of North East Gonja District, the construction of the Buipe accident and Emergency Hospital, the Construction of Agenda 111 district hospitals for North Gonja and North East Gonja districts and the Sawla District hospital as some of the gargantuan infrastructural projects executed by the Nana Addo led NPP administration.
He maintained profusely that there’s no major legacy in the Region to credit Ex-President John Mahama with despite the wanton electoral fortunes he enjoyed from voters within the area.
He opined that he is often baffled by attempts to credit the Ex-President with the construction of the Fufulso-Sawla road which was funded by the African Development Bank.
According to him, the Late Professor John Evans Atta Mills should rather be credited for the construction of the road as a President and not John Mahama.
He dared the NDC to pinpoint any major legacy of Ex-President John Mahama in Gonjaland for that matter Savannah Region when he reigned as President of the Republic of Ghana.
Alhaji Nabco as he is widely known further stated that the 2020 Presidential candidate of the opposition NDC is taking the people of the area for granted because he is of the conviction that the people will still rally behind him despite neglecting them for no apparent reason.
Mr. Kantama, therefore, rallied voters in the Region to massively vote for the New Patriotic Party come 2024 for what he described as the massive development undertaken in the Region by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to enable them to continue with the good work for the Savannah Region and the nation at large.
