Public Relations Officer at the State housing company, Mr. Gordon Asare Bediako in an interview with Skyy News indicated that, a total of fourteen of the houses have been completed and handed over to their respective owners.
According to him, the projects were started under the administration of former President John Dramani Mahama but were completed by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia has again indicated that, if the NDC can only find faults in twenty-six (26) of the entire projects executed by the NPP, then it is a clear admission that, the NPP has delivered 99.9 percent of its campaign promises to Ghanaians.
