The National Tescon Deputy Coordinator of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Madam Rosemond Obeng has commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government for the Synohydro Master Project Support Agreement.

According to People's Mother as affectionately called, the barter arrangement will have 2 billion US dollars worth of priority infrastructure projects delivered across the country.

"Per the compact, Ghana will benefit from two billion dollars worth of priority projects in return for a commensurate value of refined bauxite from Ghana’s rich mineral deposits",she recounted.

She added that each of the 16 regions will benefit from roads, buildings for judicial service, industrial parks, and landfill sites among other key infrastructure within the next 30 calendar months.

Speaking on Power FM’s Dwabo Ase talk show, she reiterated that through the barter arrangement, our bauxite resources will be developed and manufactured into aluminum products and delivered to Synohydro for the benefit of the 16 regions in Ghana to see massive facelift in infrastructure as well as road networks in the country which would meet international standard.

She however lambasted the NDC government for allegedly giving close to 60% of Ghana's bauxite reserves to the younger brother of the former President John Dramani Mahama (Ibrahim Mahama) during his administration.

She therefore maintained that the infrastructural projects through bartering of bauxite under Akufo-Addo's administration for the benefit of every Ghanaian is better than NDCs Era of offering bauxite to one single individual.

Meanwhile The Director of Research for the opposition National Democratic Congress has described as hypocritical President Nana Akufo-Addo’s excitement over projects expected to be funded with the two billion dollar Sinohydro deal.

Dr Ahadzie made this comment on the Ultimate FM's breakfast Show, recounting moments when the former president Mahama had to deal with critics from the then opposition NPP who claimed that infrastructure did not put food on the tables of Ghanaians.

“It only exposes them and their hypocrisy because they campaigned on the message that we don’t eat infrastructure and our argument has always been that infrastructure actually stimulates development and therefore we need that.

“They must make an admission that we were on the right path in trying to build infrastructure for Ghana to increase their earning capabilities and so why are they going to build that?” he quizzed.
