Former Education Minister, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang has described as financial loss to the state, some abandoned projects across the country.
According to her, the situation where projects undertaken by the erstwhile NDC administration were left to rot is unacceptable.
“We have seen these structures taken over by weeds and shrubs as well as iron rods that have disappeared.
“We definitely have to return to this project, in which case we have to conduct a reevaluation and spend more money and all of this cannot be very helpful to us as a nation.”
She was speaking to media men when she made a stopover at the abandoned Day Senior High School project site at Asempaneye in the Joaboso Constituency in the Western North Region as part of her campaign tour.
Describing the situation as unfortunate, the running mate to the NDC’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama said the practice of abandoning projects that have been started under a particular administration impedes the nation’s progress.
“It is not as if we just cut the sod and abandoned it. We started, the foundations are done, the columns are being raised.
“You can all see the structures here,” she said.
