The National Women Organizer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Hanna Louisa Bisiw has described President Akufo-Addo as a liar.
The female politician slammed the president for claiming that he has paid all contractors when there are some who are yet to be paid.
President Nana Akufo-Addo has told wives of contractors that he has paid their husbands and, so, this year’s Christmas season would be an enjoyable one.
“We have started paying contractors”, President Akufo-Addo told market women and traders at Okaishie on Tuesday, 3 December 2019.
To the women, in particular, the President said: “Some of your husbands who are involved have been paid, so, if they have not made you aware, kindly tell them that I say they have been paid”.
“They [your husbands] are aware”, the President insisted, adding: “So, this Christmas promises to be great for you traders and for all of us”.
He added: “The Ministry of Finance has released GHS2.2 billion to the Ministry of Roads and Highways for payment for works done by road contractors across the country”, the President announced, adding: “This will improve the cash flow of our contractors, and ensure that those who had left their construction sites return to complete their projects”.
But appearing on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the former deputy attic minister said it would be prudent for the president to provide a list of all the contractors paid.
According to her, that’s the only way Ghanaians would take him seriously for the claims he made.
She said the current government has performed abysmally, increased the hardship if Ghanaians and failed to deliver on their promise to put money in the pickets if Ghanaians.
