Dr. Bawumia’s claim on number of airports constructed by NPP false – Isaac Adongo

The Minority says assertion by Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government has constructed extra airports in Ghana than any administration is factually inaccurate.

Vice President Mahamadu in the course of the Hogbetsotso Za pageant in Anlo, Volta Region on Saturday touted the event initiatives the government has undertaken.

Among others, Dr. Bawumia talked about that the Akufo-Addo-led government has constructed essentially the most airports within the country’s historical past.

Addressing journalists on Tuesday, the Deputy Ranking Member on the Finance Committee, Isaac Adongo said the airports the NPP seeks to lay claim to are literally initiatives began by the erstwhile John Mahama administration.

According to him, the one airport that the NPP government constructed is the Takoradi Airport.

“He [Dr Bawumia] was there at Hogbetsotso saying that they have constructed more airports than anyone in this world. Which airport? ….If you come and continue my work do you become better than me? Then if you had constructed Terminal 3, what would you have said?” he requested.

Touching on President Akufo-Addo’s no haircut remark, he said that the President may not have understood what a haircut means.

Explaining a ‘haircut’, he said: “anytime there is a contractual obligation to somebody in terms of a loan and you plead with that person to shift his position in the original contract into something new, that is a haircut.”

“If I gave you 100 Ghana cedis and you said when I come, I will get 60 Ghana cedis that is a haircut or he thinks that haircut is some activity in a barbering saloon?” he quizzed.
