Former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama says the best form of governance is about infrastructural development and not putting money in people’s pocket.
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.

The former President also spoke about the possibility of paying allowances to the various Assembly Members across the country; a promise which the Local Government and Rural Development Minister, Hajia Alima Mahama believes is impossible to implement
He believes that with the reduction of the number of Ministers the government will be able to pay Assembly Members.
“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.
