John Dramani Mahama was however criticized severely by the opposition NPP and some Ghanaians. Some people even argued infrastructure cannot be eaten. Now amidst the wake of the coronavirus outbreak Ghana is benefiting from these infrastructural project.
In the same vein, under the leadership of President Nana Akuffo Addo, Ghanaians saw the procurement of 307 ambulances with

It seems opposition political parties always oppose the initiatives of incumbent government even if the citizenry stands to benefit. It’s a blessing that nature in itself is revealing the importance of supporting each succeeding government policies when it hovers around the development of the entire nation.
