You can’t question us on Bolga-Bawku road – NPP responds to NDC’s press conference

- Advertisement -

“The NDC cannot question us on the Bolga-Bawku road. I repeat, the NDC cannot question us on the Bolga-Bawku road.”

Peter Ayinbisa Ayamga, the Upper East Regional Communications Director of the NPP made this statement at a press conference held by the party today, February 28, 2023, in the Upper East Region. 

The press conference, according to Mr. Ayinbisa, sought “to question the moral-rightfulness of the NDC to talk about the Bolgatanga Bawku –Polimakom road, punch at some deliberate attempts to suppress the facts for political expediency, offer you some background of the project with up-to-date progress report, highlight on some major achievements of the government on road infrastructure in the region and comment on the purported shortage of routine vaccines in the region.”

Mr. Ayinbisa suggested that the NDC, had no moral right to speak about the construction or progress of the Bolga-Bawku Pulmakom road. 

“Ladies and gentlemen, prior to the coming into office of the NPP government in 2017, the

region was bedevilled with bad roads. The abysmal performance of the NDC in the road sector reflected the terrible nature of our roads at that time. An accurate and true reflection of the NDC’s double standard and indeed hypocrisy is cited by Mr Offei-Akoto Ayeh‟s report as captured by A1 Radio in 2016 which details the travesty of the NDC‟s deceit, concerning this road as far back in 2012.”

” A portion of the statement reads as follows – In 2012, the youth of Bawku and commercial drivers hit the streets to register their displeasure about the state of the road that leads to one of the nation’s busiest commercial towns. The protest was followed with commercial drivers refusing to ply the road, leaving passengers stranded and as expected in an election year, heavy duty vehicles and equipment’s were moved to the site and the supposed fixing begun. However, work on the road seized after the elections with all the heavy-duty equipment disappearing into thin air. – There is no gain saying that the pretense of working on the road was to trick the people of upper east for votes.”

“In the same report, the then sitting President made a categorical pledge to the Kusaug people to fix the road – I want to promise you that the next time I come

to Bawku the road between Bolga and Bawku will not be the main issue, as soon as

I go back to Accra, I am going to speak to the road minister and you will see for

yourselves the difference that will take place. – Additionally, in 2015, John Mahama is quoted by the above cited news report promising yet again on this road having done so three years earlier without any work to show. He was emphatic that – I know that is a very important road and I can assure you that by the time I’m coming back next year, it will be in a much better condition than it is now. – Ladies and gentlemen of the press, was this road anything close to better before the NDC left power in 2016?”
