Former President John Dramani Mahama, says his next administration will not construct new projects until existing ones are completed and put to use.
Mr Mahama said the current economic crisis requires new ways of doing things other than the usual.
According to him, an inventory will be taken of all ongoing projects with strict time lines to ensure their completion to prevent wastage of scarce resources.
Engaging delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Tano South in the Ahafo Region, Mr Mahama said the interest and needs of Ghanaians will be paramount to his next administration.
“With the economic crisis that we currently have, by the time the NDC comes into power in 2025, we are still going to have a restricted fiscal space because of the economic difficulties.
“A new NDC will not be in a hurry to start new projects. What we will do is that the projects that have been ongoing and have been abandoned and uncompleted, we will take an inventory of all of them and with the little resources, we will dedicate it to finishing them.”
Mr Mahama accused President Akufo-Addo of abandoning many of the projects started during his government’s tenure.
This, he said is disappointing and must be addressed urgently.
According to him, schools and road projects among others initiated during his time as President have been left unattended to.
Mr Mahama is currently campaigning for delegates of the party to vote for him to lead the party into the 2024 general elections.
