The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo has taken a swipe at his predecessor John Dramani Mahama during a “Encounter with the Media” event today at the Jubilee house.
According to the President, he prefers flying drones to deliver medicines to people at hard to reach areas than investing in guinea fowls that would fly to Burkina Faso.
He said “I prefer drones flying to deliver essential medicines to our people than an investment in guinea fowls that allegedly fly off to Burkina Faso without any trace”.
This was in reaction to a question from a journalist on the recent proposal by the government of Ghana to use drones for delivery of essential healthcare consumables to very rural areas with poor road network.
It will be recalled that the erstwhile Mahama led administration invested a huge amount of money in a project up North to better the lives of Ghanaians living within the 3 Northern regions. But after being unable to account for the monies, it was reported that the money was used to invest in guinea fowls, and that the guinea fowls has broken their bounds and had flown to Burkina Faso.
