“The South Africans pulled pout after Covid… What they wrote to me was that because of Covid, things have changed, they can’t come. That is what they wrote to me, that we have to wait,” he said.

On the question of whether the project was worth resuming, the MP indicated that it is “up to them [government].”

“It depends on how much money you have, it [also] depends on whether the people are prepared to do it,” Mr Ghartey added.

During the interview, the legislator also publicly stated his position about being a potential running mate to the NPP presidential candidate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
