Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to set up an irrigation dam in every village in the northern part of Ghana should he win the 7 December polls to become President.

Speaking to the Bolgatanga Traditional Council in the Upper East Region about his plans for Ghana’s agriculture in a future Akufo-Addo government, the three-time flag bearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) said: “As far as this part of our world is concerned, I want to go further and talk about one village one dam.”

Mr Akufo-Addo said his ‘1 village, 1 dam’ policy is to help Ghana become self-sufficient in food production and even become an exporter of food to the sub-region.

Speaking to the issue on Accra100.5FM’s mid-day news, Mr Akufo-Addo’s spokesperson, Mustapha Hamid, said his boss intended ensuring that the northern part of Ghana becomes the country’s food basket through the ‘1 village, 1 dam’ policy.

“It has happened before under ‘Operation Feed Yourself’ in the Acheampong regime, so why can’t it be done again?” Mr Hamid asked.

Mr Akufo-Addo’s latest promise comes on the back of his earlier ‘1 district, 1 factory’ promise which he made a few months ago. It was described as impossible by the governing National Democratic Congress.
