“You Built The Roof Before Building The Foundation “– Akufo Addo Jabs Mahama Hard.

The president of the country Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has has taken a dig at his predecessor and it is not a mild one.

The president who was speaking on Eagle FM as part of his tour of the Central region was reacting to a statement made by former President John Dramani Mahama who a few days earlier had stated that he was not foolish to set up the Komenda Sugar Factory without making arrangements for the provision of raw materials, which in this case is sugarcane.

According to a Technical report in 2017 by some experts, there was never a completed test on the facility before it was commissioned because of the unavailability of sufficient sugarcane for the test.

It was in reacting to this statement that the President, during his interview mentioned that ideally before anyone ventures into something of such a scale, there was the need to ensure that the raw materials were available and could be accessed. According to him, what the former president did was like building the roof of a building before thinking about the foundation.

This statement is surely going to trigger a debate in the country as people are going to jump on it and form their own conclusions.
