President Akufo-Addo owes former President John Dramani Mahama an apology for his attacks on him while he was busy constructing roads across the country, Amadu Sorogho, former lawmaker for Abokobi-Madina has said.
Speaking on Kasapa FM, he reminded Ghanaians how Akufo-Addo in the build up to the 2016 elections told Mahama that Ghanaians do not eat roads so he should rather focus on putting money in the pockets of Ghanaians.
However, Akufo-Addo now finds himself in government and has since been promising the Ghanaian people roads, with his road minister, Amoako-Atta saying that 6,000 kilometers out of 11,000 kilometers of roads are to be completed under government’s second year of roads programme.
According to Mr Sorogho, President Akufo-Addo owes Mr Mahama an unconditional apology for turning Ghanaians against him when he was constructing roads.
“What President Akufo-Addo and the Road Minister Amoako-Attah should do is beg former President John Mahama for all what they have done to him, so he can forgive them. You’ll recall that when the NDC government was constructing roads in this country what the then NPP in opposition said was, do we eat roads? we want money in our pockets, and you are here talking about roads.”
“The NDC decided to embark on numerous road construction in order to ease the burden of transportation and enable Ghanaians to move freely without stress. But the NPP then underestimated the economic benefits of Mahama’s road projects.”
