“President Mahama has created more potholes in people’s pockets than he has fixed…he should concentrate on fixing the pot-holes he has created in our pockets and stop boasting about the infrastructure which every government undertakes…,” he said.
Dr Okoe Boye said this while reacting to claims by the Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs that the Mahama administration has achieved a lot in terms of infrastructure.
According to him, the monumental achievements, is going to lead to the victory of the President and the NDC party especially in the Central Region.
Allotey Jacobs projected that the party was going to win 20 out of the 23 seats in the region. And this included the seat occupied by the NPP ‘firebrand’ Legislator, Kennedy Ohene Agyepong.
“NDC will win not less than 20 seats in the Central Region and I can bet you that that includes that of Kennedy Agyapong, we just finished working on that…we know he is tired and would force him to retire…,” he said.
The NDC currently have 16 Parliamentary seats in the region as against the NPP’s 7.
But the comments, Dr Okoe Boye said were just a ‘political talk’ which he said would never come to fruition.
He further called on President Mahama and the NDC Communicators to ‘stop boasting about infrastructural development’ as according to him, every government the country has had since independence has embarked on one form of infrastructure or the other.
“President John Mahama and the NDC government should stop boasting about infrastructural development…since Acheampong’s time, each government has built schools and roads etc.…what is the big deal in executing a basic function of government…,” he quizzed.
Dr Okoe Boye also said that ‘the time was up for the government to concentrate on sealing the potholes in people’s pockets since there is disconnect between infrastructure and growth rate.’
