“In Central Tongu, the construction work on a Police Head Quarters in Adidome which was started by the NPP government but has been put to a halt by the current NDC government.
“A work on the fence wall for the Teraferi Dam was expected to be continued by the NDC government after a plan had been drawn and started by the NPP government on this project but nothing has been done since. In fact there are numerous other such projects in both South and North Tongu that will be mentioned at the appropriate time. We know that you Nana, you are capable of rising to the occasion and will not disappoint us.”
