The Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak, has criticized the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for attempting to appropriate a FIFA funded project in the Upper East Region as a government-funded one. The project in question is an Astroturf at Bolgatanga, which is almost completed and set to be handed over to the Ghana Football Association.

In a Facebook post by the NPP Projects Bureau, they indicated that the project was a government-funded initiative. However, Dr. Apaak has debunked this claim and accused the NPP of attempting to take credit for something they had not funded.

Dr. Apaak’s response to the NPP’s post was scathing, calling them a “thieving galamsey party” and accusing them of trying to steal credit for the project. He pointed out that the people of the Upper East Region were well aware that the project was funded by FIFA and not the government.

It is no secret that the NPP has been accused of taking credit for projects initiated and funded by previous administrations. This move by the party is not only an attempt to deceive the public but is also an insult to the people of the Upper East Region, who are well aware of the source of funding for the Astroturf project.

For the most part, the NPP has been caught in the act of trying to appropriate a project that was not their doing. The fact that this is a FIFA funded project makes the NPP’s actions even more questionable. It raises the question of why the party is attempting to take credit for a project that was not funded by the government.

Dr. Apaak’s response is a welcome one, and it is important that more people speak out against the NPP’s attempts to take credit for projects that were not initiated or funded by them. It is important that the public is made aware of the true source of funding for projects such as the Astroturf in Bolgatanga, and the government should take steps to ensure that credit is given where credit is due.
