John Dramani Mahama, the NDC’s presidential candidate, has declared his plan to cancel a number of government initiatives considered to be unnecessary expenditures, including the ambitious ‘One Village, One Dam’ project.

Mahama pointed out that by diverting resources from these endeavors, it would be possible to make meaningful investments in projects that are likely to enhance the country’s economic development and yield significant profits.

The ex-president underscored the critical need for judicious financial management and strict budgetary control in response to the prevailing economic difficulties.

He expressed disapproval of the incumbent government’s approach, which has been to concentrate on increasing revenue without effectively tackling the fundamental issues causing fiscal waste.

Mahama committed to a course of action that, if elected on December 7, would involve the discontinuation of unproductive projects and the redirection of those funds into more lucrative ventures.

“This government made many mistakes and we find ourselves in this crisis again and we need to cut down expenditure. This government is not willing to cut expenditure. In a crisis, you slash expenditure and increase revenues.

“All they are doing is increasing revenues but without reducing expenditure. We are going to eliminate all those wasteful projects; One Village, One Dam and all those things that they spent billions on so that we can use that money in the more productive sectors to make the economy grow again. Like Planting for Food and Jobs.”
