A Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu has ridiculed government’s $1m per constituency, saying it will be purposely used for the building of public toilets.

The one-million-dollar-per-constituency policy which is focused on alleviating poverty was one of the major promises of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the run up to the 2016 elections.

It is, however, yet to see the light of day since the NPP assumed power.

Delivering the 2018 budget statement in Parliament Wednesday, Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta announced that the policy, which is part of the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP), is ready to be implemented in all 275 constituencies.  

But speaking Accra-based Joy FM Thursday, Felix Kwakye Ofosu said some of the projects being said to be undertaken by IPEP for some of the constituencies are KVIP toilet facilities.

“If all the hoopla and noise about one million one constituency was about constructing toilets then I’m afraid that the people of Ghana have been misled…If you look at what has been advertised, I’m not sure that it is the sort of thing that people were looking out for when they went about touting one million one constituency. That promise for all intents and purposes has not materialised,” he said.
