It would be recalled that President Nana Akufo-Addo fumed over the slow pace of work on the Agenda 111 hospital project in the Bolgatanga East District of the Upper East Region.

The president was in the Upper East Region Friday, August 5, 2022, and visited the Agenda 111 project in the Bolgatanga East District to inspect the progress of work. When the President got to the site, it is reported that the President could not hide his anger.

The President, unhappy about the progress of work is said to have asked, rather angrily, “Adeɛ nu wɔ hene?” To wit, “where is it [the Agenda 111]?”

The president expressing his disappointment with the remark ended the tour and the proposed inspection and returned to the Presidential Villa at the Regional Minister’s Residence.

President’s apparent anger and displeasure are said to have caused a bit of ruckus within the ranks of the party.

But it recently came to light that the President’s anger may have stemmed from the fact that the contractor, as with all other contrators working on Agenda 111 project across the country received a mobilisation fee of 1 million dollars.

This is according to Andrew Atariwini, a member of the NPP’s communication team.

“The Zuarungu Agenda 111, he [the contractor] took 1 million dollars for mobilisation. That is the case. Before you take the conctract, it is 1 million dollars for mobilisation,” Mr Atariwini disclosed.

Mr. Atariwni explained that the total sum for the project is 16 million dollars.

“It is 16 million dollars. You can go and check. You take 1 million dollars as mobilisation. What did you use it for? By the time the president came to check, you [the contractor] were still at foundation level,” Mr. Atariwni queried the contractor.
