Former President, John Dramani Mahama has insisted good governance is no about putting money in people’s pockets but by creating opportunities for the citizens and infrastructural development.
He said “If someone gives you money today, by tomorrow it will finish. But if you build that hospital, the school it will be there for generations, so governance is common sense and not rocket science”.
He made this known when he was addressing the king of Dagbon, Ya-Naa Abukari Mahama II, and his subjects at the Gbewaa palace in Yendi during a courtesy call on the overlord.
When this government took over, they ballooned the size of the central government, 125 ministers. I intend to cut down the size and use it to pay our hardworking assembly members, we can pay them, it’s possible,” he told Ya-Naa Abukari Mahama II.
