Former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has part of the measures in rescuing the ailing Ghanaian economy and is proposing that government prioritizes projects.
He believes that projects undertaken at the time Ghana is faced with economic challenges should be projects that are of higher value.
An example of projects he believes must be shelved now is the proposed building of Constituency Offices for Members of Parliament.
John Dramani Mahama believes that at a time when the country is struggling, it will be misplaced for the country to invest in such buildings.
He, therefore, suggests that in the interim, office spaces can be found at the various Assemblies or other government buildings can serve the purpose so that the building can be put up in the future when the country’s economy is out of the woods.
“The proposed building of Constituency offices for MPs should be shelved until the economy is out of the woods. In the interim, office space can be found within the District Assemblies or other government buildings.
In our current economic state, public funds must go into projects that are necessary and which meet the pressing needs of our people in the communities. Such projects must have a tangible and measurable impact on job creation and national development,” he said in a post shared on Social media.
