Addressing a small gathering in his house, made up of the Abuakwa North constituency includiong the newly-elected MP of the area, Gifty Twum Ampofo, President Kufuor maintained that president Mahama’s comments were false.

The former president mentioned the Keta Sea Defence Project as one of the main improvements the NPP government brought to the region.

“  The NPP’s achievements in the region are uncountable. A typical example is the Ho Polytechnic. Even the students of the University of Ghana were jealous at the level of infrastructural investment we made in the University.”

Former president John Agyekum Kufuor added that “ It was under the NPP’s administration that the Keta Sea Defence Project that had stalled for years was completed. The loan that the NDC had taken for the project. We had to look for more money, even though no one would give us a loan at the time, to finish it.”
