Former President, John Dramani Mahama has chided President Akufo-Addo for announcing the absorption of water bills of Ghanaians for the next three months.
According to him, taps are not flowing thus is diversionary propaganda to deceive Ghanaians.
The NDC Flagbearer mentioned that the NDC government during its tenure worked so hard to ensure there was improved access to water.
“Even though water tariffs have been absorbed for the next three months, there have been loud complaints of interruptions in the supply of treated water through pipes and/or water tankers,” he said
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) used the opportunity to urge the government to redouble its efforts in this sector in order to give meaning to the campaign for regular handwashing with soap under running water”.
President Nana Akufo-Addo says that the government will fully cover the bills of low-income consumers of electricity in the country for April, May and June 2020.
The remaining consumers who fall outside of this category will enjoy a 50 percent reduction in the cost of electricity for the same period.
