The flagbearer and leader of the National Democratic Congress John Mahama has questioned the nature of the dams that have been provided under government’s One Village One Dam promise.

The flagbearer who described the 1V1D as a monumental waste of money said instead of the government constructing dams as promised to the people of Ghana, it has resorted to providing dugouts that are not fit for all-year-round farming because they dry up and some are even not able to hold water.

Addressing a durbar of chiefs and people of Loggu and Manwe in the Wa East constituency, as part of his four-day tour of the Upper West Region, Mr Mahama said the government’s much-touted dams are dugouts which are unfit for the purposes of irrigation.

“In 2016, when the NPP came with the promise of one village one dam, I personally asked what kind of dams they are talking about because there are different kinds of dams but they refused to answer”.

Mr Mahama noted that his observation is consistent with the findings of a recent research conducted by the Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana that about 90 percent of the dams constructed under the government’s One Village One Dam policy cannot be used for irrigation.

Mr Mahama assured the chiefs and people of the area that the next NDC administration will construct fit-for-purpose irrigation dams to support their farming activities throughout the year across the country.
