The Communications Director for the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the Savannah Region, Mohammed Issah, has debunked claims by former President Mahama that the Community Day School at Mpaha in the Central Gonja District, has been abandoned by the Nana Addo administration.
According to him, the Community Day SHS in Mpaha was never abandoned as claimed by the NDC presidential candidate. He said at the time NDC was leaving office, the project had stalled for some months and was a little over 50% complete.
He said around September 2018, the school was completed and ready to take its first batch of students but for an error from Computerized School Selection and Placement (CSSP) secretariat.
‘Twelve (12) Teachers were posted by GES- Headquarters to the School and were introduced to the community by the DCE for Central Gonja District and the management of GES in the District.
The Teachers were reassigned within the District in view of the stated error of the CSSP’.
Mr. Issah revealed that this year, the School is part of the School choices and had it’s 30% catchment Area covering 12 Junior High Schools in the Debre, Tulewe and parts of the Kusawgu Traditional Areas all in the Central Gonja District. The reassigned Teachers are set to be recalled for a smooth opening when school resumes this year.
‘For any candidate, who claims to be a son of the land, but failed to complete and put to use a single Community Day SHS in his home Region to come back with such lies to his own people after all the votes he enjoyed from us is so repugnant. Is it not shameful, that in 2016, about 20 of such schools were completed and put to use across the country without a single one coming from the home Region of the then President Mahama? Is it not insulting to return to your own people who have voted consistently for you and your immediate family with such lies?” He asked
DAMANGO WATER PROJECT
The Savannah Regional Communications Director lambasted Mr. Mahama for peddling plain falsehood in his desperate attempt to claim credit for the water project in the capital city-Damongo.
‘For the records, there’s no single trace of any credible document for approval by either parliament or cabinet for the Damongo water project during the tenure of Former President Mahama’
He challenge candidate Mahama and his group of paid propagandist to produce a single document to that effect adding that checks from parliament shows no committee was presented with any document for consideration.
‘Is it not rather insulting to have a former President rule for Eight (8) good years before thinking of getting water for the biggest city in his home Region? How did Mr Mahama sleep throughout the 8 years when the overload of the Gonjaland had no water to drink?’ he asked
He retreated that president Akufo Addo and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s Damongo Water project is being financed by Deutsche Bank, and to be executed by Biwater. All the processes leading to the approval have gone through all the stages.
Mr. Issah claimed the Salaga Ultra-Modern District Hospital, affordable housing project in Sanzirgu, a Suburb of Tamale, Kukuo ultra-Morden market project and other projects was abandoned by the incompetent NDC.
‘From the above narrative, it is abundantly clear, that Mr Mahama has proven his critics right. He has confirmed the long held notion, that he is incapable of providing any superior solutions to the myriad of problems confronting us as a people. Mr Mahama is a deception and cannot do anything better than the tales told’, he said.
