The Chiana-Paga Parliamentary Candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Robert Aloo, expressed his dismay at critics who claim that the NPP government has borrowed extensively without transparently accounting for the projects funded by these loans.

Mr. Aloo, who was once an accountant by profession, defended the government’s borrowing practices, emphasizing that borrowing is a common practice for governments worldwide to fund developmental initiatives.

“Every government, either from developed or underdeveloped countries, borrows, be it internally or externally. So, for people, especially those from NDC, to say the government has borrowed extensively without transparently accounting for the projects such funds have been used for begs the question of their transparency.”

In an exclusive interview on A1 Radio, Mr. Aloo argued that the NPP government, like its global counterparts, has borrowed responsibly to execute crucial developmental projects that contribute to the nation’s growth.

He lamented the criticism directed at the government for its borrowing activities, stating that it often makes him sad when people overlook the tangible evidence of these investments.

Mr. Aloo pointed to several projects as clear indicators of the government’s effective utilization of borrowed funds. “If you say this government has borrowed, then it is proper that you ask yourself what the government has used such funds for. In the Northern sector alone, we can mention several projects that this government has started or helped to complete – notably, the Tamale flyover, the ambitious Agenda 111 hospital projects, and the expansion of the Tamale Airport. You see, we need to be fair to this government.”

According to the PC, these projects are tangible proof that the borrowed funds have been channeled towards initiatives that directly benefit the citizens and contribute to the overall development of the country.

The parliamentary candidate urged people, particularly those from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to acknowledge and appreciate the significant strides made by the NPP government in terms of infrastructure development and other key sectors.

He therefore called for courtesy and constructive dialogue, emphasizing the need to focus on the positive outcomes achieved through government initiatives.
