The Spokesperson to the Vice President, Gideon Boako, has disregarded previous Head of state John Dramani Mahama’s claim that some dams under the government’s ‘One village One Dam’ program are not yielding results

Mr. Boako said that Mahama’s comments on the policy was unfortunate because those dams has benefitted various areas including his constituency.
“It is really unfortunate that the former President talks about the dams the way he talks about it because, on Tuesday, we went to his own constituency and even in the Bole constituency you could see a lot of dams. It was only a matter of political expediency that the former President decided to cut a slur on the dams.”

He claimed the dams are benefiting people in the north and that former president’s comment is just a political rethoric.

“If you go to all the regions we have visited, you will see dams with water in them. The dams are functioning. Of course, there are others that are at various stages of completion.”

NDC has constantly required an overhaul of the One Village One Dam initiative, urging the government to realign its money to construct standard dams.
