Agenda 111 projects can’t be completed – Salifu Abdallah

The Upper East Regional Communication Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jonathan Abdallah Salifu, is doubtful the Agenda 111 projects dotted across the country can be finished. 

When Mr. Salifu Abdallah spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, he mentioned that while the government had committed $1 million for each project to commence,  there has been no further commitment or the indication of same from the government. 

As such, when the contractors exhaust the initial amount given to them for the projects, the projects would stall. Even worse, according to Mr. Abdallah, the President’s judgement on the initial completion date for the Agenda 88 that were promised first was a deception. 

“Agenda 111, you remember? The first promise was made in April 2020 when the President addressed the nation. Those days, he spoke about 88 hospitals and said they were going to be completed in a year. The President is not a small man. He is the most important person in this country and touted as one of the most experienced by his own people. He should have known that in the one year he was mentioning, there is a time to look for land, time to look for money, time to cut sod and there would be challenges. One year passed.”

While some projects have begun across the country, Mr. Salifu Abdallah has predicted that they would stall immediately if the contractors run out of funds. 

“Even though some of the projects have started, they are going to have serious problems. Let my brother help us if he has the opportunity, he should tell us which part of the budget makes provision for Agenda 111. After they had mobilised something for the contractors to move to site, some of them have raised several certificates and they are not being paid. Don’t be surprised, by next month, you would see many of them pull out of site,” he said.
