The Vice President of Ghana,Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has dared the Presidential candidate, National Democratic Congress(NDC) John Dramani Mahama to name one of the legacies of his failed programme, Savannah Development Authority (SADA).
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia made this call when he was speaking at a durbar in his honour at the instance if the Paramount Chief of Tatale, Obore Gariba Yonkosor II.
“In the last three years, we have dug 69 boreholes to deal with water problem across the district. We have complete 5 small town water systems. As well, we have built classrooms in many places. We have seven dams under one village,one dam and many toilets which have been built. So there is so much development taking place in just three and a half years. NDC was here for eight years and when they said they were going to develop the North they decided to come up with SADA. I’m sure you’ve all heard about SADA. They sunk about One million dollars into SADA but have you seen any project of SADA in Tatale? Can they point to us one legacy of SADA in the whole five Northern regions. We cannot see the legacy of SADA. They said they’ve invested in Guinea Fowls, we said where are the Guinea fowls, they said they’ve flown to Burkina Faso that is the legacy of SADA. They said they have invested in Tree planting, we said where are the trees, they said they’ve all been burnt by fire.”he said.
Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is on a campaign tour at the North , where he has already paid a courtesy call to Ya Naa in Dagbon.
