Pettiness in our politics becoming too much; sanction politicians who discontinue state projects

The North Tongu Member of Parliament (MP), Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has suggested that a legislation must be passed to sanction political leaders who refuse to continue projects started by previous governments.

He said there are many uncompleted projects across the country which, when completed, could aid in development but have been left to rot, a situation he observed is retarding the country’s development.

Mr. Ablakwa decried the emphasis put on party manifestoes and blamed the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the stalled growth of the country.

According to him, political appointees should endeavour to finish projects started by their predecessors without looking at who gets the credit for such initiatives.

“The DCE comes to power and he wants to start afresh when you can use about half of the money that you are using to start fresh projects to complete all the existing projects and existing schools. You have Ministers of State who come and want to have their own footprint, their own legacy so they would not continue existing projects.
