In Ghana, the continuation, and completion of projects started by the previous government always seems a challenge for the new government. There are a lot of projects started by Former President John Dramani Mahama which have left in the bush by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's administration. Some are affordable housing projects, schools, hospitals, roads among others.
The reason has been that the previous government will be given the credit for starting the projects. This perception is soo wrong that we keep on wasting taxpayers' money on every change of government. Normally, you will be seen as an enemy in politics for trying to convince your government to complete a previous government project. But the incumbent Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Yao Latsa has taken a bold step for these projects started in 2010 to be completed by his New Patriotic Party's administration.
As we are all aware, all projects started in 2010 were definitely commenced by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Ex-President John Dramani Mahama. Some NPP folks may see this as a wrong call on the side of the Minister but it is the right thing to do.
According to Dr. Archibald Yao Latsa, a 1-Storey 8-Unit Classroom Block and 1-Storey 300 Bed Capacity Dormitory all started in 2010 need to be continued and completed. In view of that, he paid a visit to Mawuko Girls' Senior High School (SHS) where these projects are located to inspects the projects in order to make a strong case to his government to continue and complete these projects.
He made this inspection on Friday, 4th June 2021 after the Governing Board Members and Management of Mawuko Girls' SHS visited him on Wednesday, 26th May 2021. Dr. Archibald Yao Latsa also used the visit to interact with some students of the school. He encouraged them to remain resolute and focused in their studies notwithstanding any challenges they faced.
