The flagbearer of the United Front Party (UFP) Nana Agyenim Boateng has rubbished Akufo-Addo’s “One village- One dam” policy.
He has asked the opposition leader to be more realistic in dealing with Ghanaians going into the December 7 elections.
Speaking on Agyenkwa FM’s morning show, Boateng, who is popularly called Gyataba added that the policy may create filth in the country.
“Taking the Ashanti region into consideration, if Akufo-Addo is to implement his Dam policy, I wonder how the region will look like. The whole country will be swallowed up with Dam,” he said.
Akufo-Addo has promised to set up an irrigation dam in every village in the northern part of Ghana should he win the 7 December polls to become President.
“As far as this part of our world is concerned, I want to go further and talk about one village one dam,” he said during his campaign up north. He said the policy is to help Ghana become self-sufficient in food production and even become an exporter of food to the sub-region.
However, the deputy general secretary of the NDC, Mr. Koku Anyidoho has slammed Nana Addo over the promise.
Speaking to the media, Anyidoho said the NPP flagbearer is still sleeping hence the churning out of “impracticable” promises.
