President Akufo-Addo has described John Dramani Mahama’s unprecedented investment in roads as a mirage.
According to him, where ever he has gone to, the nature of roads in the country is a clear indication that John Mahama didn’t do much with regards to constructing good roads for the country like the National Democratic Congress made the people of Ghana believe.
The President who made this known during his visit to the Brong Ahafo Region as part of his nationwide tour said “The unprecedented road infrastructure is a mirage. Everywhere I go people complain of roads, and therefore the claim can only be described as propaganda. But measures have been put in place by my govt to address the problem and Akrodie, Goaso, Kenyasi, Hwidiem and others will their roads fixed soon through the emergency spot improvement programme and contracts will be awarded soon”.
The President therefore indicated that his government is committed to providing the people of Ghana with good roads assuring the people that “government is, therefore, investing GHc 100 million under the Emergency Spot Improvement Project for major road rehabilitation in the country”.
Akufo-Addo assured the people of Brong Ahafo Region of his commitment to turn the fortunes of Ghana around after inheriting a weak economy from the National Democratic Congress.
On the creation of new Regions in the area, the President told residents all that is left is for them to vote massively in the referendum for the creation of the regions as all constitutional work has been done.
