|Audio Attachment:Listen to Kwesi Pratt Jnr on Peace FM's 'kokrokoo' programme|
Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. has asked political parties to be measured by the promises they make to Ghanaians.
Kwesi Pratt believes some promises made by political leaders do not have any basis but are targeted at winning votes for their parties.
He recounted some promises of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the petroleum sector that both parties failed to fulfill after coming into power.
Mr. Pratt was commenting on the 'One Village, One Dam' campaign promise of the NPP Flagbearer, Nana Addo.
He reiterated on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' that Nana Addo's promise is not feasible.
He explained that it is impossible to construct a dam in every village in the country because scientifically, some villages cannot be dammed no matter the efforts by Nana Addo.
Touring the Upper East Region, Nana Addo pledged to construct a dam in every village in the Northern Region when elected President of the Republic of Ghana.
He was hopeful his initiative will boost Ghana's agricultural sector.
But Mr. Pratt has called the bluff of the NPP flagbearer, stressing that “just the geology; it’s not possible to get water in every village to dam in every village, it’s not possible. I’m ready to argue out my point with anyone who will challenge me . . . The geology does not support this claim, to have a dam in every village.”
He added that every promise made must "be backed by something. You don’t just give promises without any basis.”
