Speaking on  projects abandoned by previous governments, Dr Bawumia called for continuity in the execution of the projects, saying Ghanaians were the ultimate losers of such decisions.

“I recall that this project was began as I said in 2014 under the previous government and it was at a cost of Ghs101 million. When we came into office the amount outstanding for completion of the project was GH¢45 million and thanks to the pressure put on the Minister of Finance by the Minister for Defence as well as the Minister for Works and Housing, government made payment of about GH¢38 million in December and I think the rest will be done soon.

“So thankfully the project was not abandoned and we have to make sure that this is the way governance continues. As the President has said, when one government starts a project, (the next one should) not abandon it; try and complete it,” he added
