Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ade Coker has described as overambitious government’s plan to build a sky train.

In his view, the NPP government should cut their coat according to their size and quit embarking on ‘overambitious’ projects.

“When I heard that government is working towards sky train project, I laughed and asked myself where would they use that sky train to pass. We are unable to even fix footbridge and we talking about sky train” he scoffed.

His advice comes after government signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Africa Investment (Ai) SkyTrain Consortium.

With Accra experiencing ever-increasing road traffic congestion, with its detrimental effects on economic activity, pollution and the quality of life, the SkyTrainÔ project, Hon. Joe. Ghartey emphasized, is the solution to these problems.

The MoU was signed on Tuesday, 8th November 2018, on the sidelines of the ongoing Africa Investment Forum, being held in Johannesburg, South Africa.

But Mr. Coker on Adom TV’s Morning Show “Badwam” Monday advised government to initiate projects it can complete.

The NDC man wondered which area in Ghana such a utopian sky train will pass given the architecture of Accra.

“Would that sky train pass Maamobi or where. Do you know what goes into it? They should just cut their coats according to their sizes. Even Britain does not have sky trains and you African country, you talking about sky train. It’s laughable” he said.


  1. This is a typical NDC Man “Visionless”, the only policy NDC can have as their credit is Creat , Loot and Share. That is their hallmark. They dont have any dream and they have no better plan for Ghana so how can Ghanaians entrust the nation to them. Visionless Party with Visionless People.
    People like Ade Coker who could not even manage Great Olympics, “Visionless Man.

  2. You see. I’m interested in a full background of Mr. Arde Coker: his educational background, working life (both public and private) and any remarkable landmarks in his entire endeavors. I’m not interested in his failure. Only successes.
