One village, one dam: Akuffo Addo’s ‘losing touch with reality’ – UFP

gyataba1Flag bearer of the United Front Party (UFP) Nana Agyenim Boateng, aka ‘Gyataba’ has rubbished Akuffo Addo’s one village, one dam policy.

He’s asked the opposition leader to be more realistic in dealing with Ghanaians.

Speaking on Agyenkwa Fm’s morning show, Gyataba added that the policy may create filth in the country.

‘taking the Ashanti region into consideration, if Akuffo Addo is to implement his Dam policy, i wonder how the region will look like. the whole country will be swallowed up with Dam’  he said.


Akufo-Addo has promised to set up an irrigation dam in every village in the northern part of Ghana should he win the 7 December polls to become President.

Speaking to the Bolgatanga Traditional Council in the Upper East Region about his plans for Ghana’s agriculture in a future Akufo-Addo government, the three-time flag bearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) said: “As far as this part of our world is concerned, I want to go further and talk about one village one dam.”

Mr Akufo-Addo said his ‘1 village, 1 dam’ policy is to help Ghana become self-sufficient in food production and even become an exporter of food to the sub-region.

NDC rubbishes the policy

Deputy general secretary of the NDC, Mr. Koku Anyidoho has also asked Nana Akufo-Addo, to wake up from his sleep and stop the dreaming fake promises of providing one dam for every village in Ghana.

Speaking to the media on the recent promise made by the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, that, he will create one dam in every village across the country, the Deputy General Secretary said Nana Addo is still sleeping and dreaming, that’s why he’s making so many impracticable promises.

 GCPP calls the policy a breeding ground for mosquitoes

The presidential candidate for the GCPP Dr. Henry Lartey says, Akufo-Addo’s promise to build 1 dam in each village of the Northern region is an avenue to breed mosquitoes.

”Does Nana Addo want to breed mosquitoes in these villages? Have they put in an infrastructure for feeder roads? Have they put in infrastructure to help farmers? What do they want to grow there? Just because you want to win an election, you are promising 1 village, 1 dam. This is not feasible. It is a hoodwink.”


Mr. Agyenim Boateng was on Saturday acclaimed the flag bearer of the United Front Party for the 2016 general elections . The party is yet to launch its campaign.
