The Savannah Regional Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Malik Basintale says the $49 million Damongo Water Supply Project is scam.
President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday, 29th July, 2020 as part of his working visit to the Northern, North East and Savannah Regions commissioned the project aimed at ending the water challenges in the area.
The project is expected to be completed by 1st December, 2020.
However, Mr Basintale in a statement said President Akufo-Addo lied to citizens in region indicating that the project will not materialise.
He called on traditional authorities in the region to bannish him from Damongo if pipe borne water flows through the tapes of Yegbonwura, the King and Overload of Gonjaland before the 2020 elections.
“Ladies and gentlemen at this point i can confidently say without any dot of doubt and put my integrity on the line that if the NPP fulfills their Damongo water project promised, before this elections as they promised or if by the 1st of December 2020 Ghanawater flows through the taps of Yagbon- wura, I should be banished from entering Damongo by the chiefs and people of our land. This i say with all my heart!,” Malik Basintale stressed.
He continued “I will not just end my bitter expressions here but will demonstrate in full what i mean by the So called Damongo Water project as launched by the President today is a scam of the highest level, a 419 of the 21st century and no different from the gargantuan “Kalabule” that brought about the revolution for the 4rd republic.”
