The Ministry for Special Development Initiatives has debunked assertions that dams built under government’s One Village One Dam project are not fit for purpose.
It said claims by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) that the dams were not properly constructed were only meant to score cheap political points.
Communication Director at the Ministry for Special Development Initiatives, Kabori Awudu Moro said the dams cited by the NDC had already been declared uncompleted by the government itself.
The Opposition National Democratic Congress at its 8th edition of the party’s “Moment Of Truth” series held on Wednesday [March 12, 2020] toured three of the dam sites in Adibo and Nakpache in the Yendi constituency and at Zakpalsi in the Mion constituency.
The National Communication Officer for the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi who led the team said the dams in their current state would not be able to serve their intended objectives.
But Kabori Awudu Moro said the NDC “got it wrong” with their assessment of the dams they toured.
