In other news, outspoken Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has lamented how government abandons old projects commissioned by their predecessors to start new ones.
In Ghana, it has been a norm in politics that the ruling government abandons projects commissioned by the outgone government to begin their own projects.
This practice has done more harm to the country’s economy since the old projects which the outgone government spent huge sums of money to complete have been abandoned in the bushes as the ruling government procure more funds to start new projects.
It is at the back of this that Lydia Forson is saying that it is very disheartening for old projects to be abandoned by the government in their quest to fulfill their own promises.
