Government's recent sod-cutting ceremonies are 'sakawa'


Summary short_text

His comments are in view of the recent sod-cutting ceremonies for the commencement of various projects across the country by the President, Akufo-Addo and other officials of government.

"If they come to your town to cut sod for a project ask them two questions, let them tell you if the project were captured under the 2020 budget or whether parliament has approved a loan for the project. If they're unable to answer then it means the sod cutting is a scam, it's because of the elections. It is sakawa or 419," Mahama said.
