The District Chief Executive of Akatsi in the Volta region has panned Nana Akufo-Addo's promise to give each constituency $1 million if his party wins power.

James Gunu told journalists the promise is to hoodwink Ghanaians into voting for the New Patriotic Party, boldly claiming "it is a lie."

According to him, during the erstwhile Kufour administration, new districts were created but were never supported with seed capital, adding that the party cannot be trust to support district assemblies with $1 million due to its history.

"The NPP created some districts in their time, they couldn't give the districts seed money, but when the NDC created districts including my district, we were given seed money of GH¢1 million Ghana, that helped the district to take off," Mr. Gunu told journalists on the sidelines of a ceremony to present educational materials to schools in his area.

"So if today they (NPP) are promising that they will give every constituency $1 million, it is not true. They couldn't do it when they had the opportunity and they can't do it now,
" he added.

The promise to spend $1 million on every district is targeted at alleviating poverty and local intervention programmes, Akufo Addo has said.
