NDC Communicator Kobby Fiagbe has reacted to recent comments by Ex-President John Agyekum Kufour about the New Patriotic Party's contributions to the development of the Volta Region.
Speaking on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Kobby Fiagbe rubbished claims by Ex-President Kufour that during his tenure, his administration embarked on a number of developmental projects in the Volta Region.
Ex-President Kufour, addressing the issue at his residence in Accra when the Member of Parliament-elect for Abuakwa North Gifty Twum Ampofo paid a courtesy call on him; expressed disappointment in President John Mahama and his NDC for refusing to accept the social interventions by him (Kufour) to the Region.
He noted that the Kufour government constructed the Ho Polytechnic and roads from Nkonya through to Dambai.
But according to Kobby Fiagbe, Ex-President Kufour did nothing to better the lives of the Voltarians in the country.
He stated that the projects outlined by Kufour were already done by his predecessor Jerry John Rawlings.
He however conceded that the Kufour government only succeeded in constructing the Aflao-Sogakope roads but it took the late President John Evans Atta Mills to bring the project into completion.
Kobby Fiagbe held strongly that Kufour's 8-year contributions to the Volta Region are nothing as compared to President Mahama's 4-year achievements at the Volta Region.
To him, Ex-President Kufour made the comments to sympathize with the NPP because he knows that the “NPP will be struggling in the election on his record and so he must also come and set the record straight so that the NPP can have a certain claim, this thing, to campaign on…As far as I’m concerned, I’m waiting for the next thing that the NPP will bring to prove that that is what they gave as a gift to the NDC in Volta Region. Then we will show them. It is not true at all. There is nothing. In fact, nowhere; nothing in the Volta Region that they can use to say the 8 years that they were in government, they have improved the Volta Region more than John Mahama’s 4 years.”
