He explained that the government did acknowledge that initial period of President Mahama’s led government had experienced some economic hardship yet the government was focused to put measures in place to ensure that the better Ghana Agenda would be fulfilled before 2016 general elections.
Mr. Kwaku Afrifa yamoah Ponko, appealed to Ghanaians to exercise some constraint as the government was putting things in order to put an end to all the difficulties the economy was going through.
He explained that the work would be done in two phases and said that the first phase would cover about 1.8 km stretch of road from Fumesua to Kyem and the contractor had six months to complete the up-grading of the road.
He indicated that the first phase would cost about GHC 550,000.00 and said that the second phase of the road would cover about 3.5 km from Kyem to New Abrem after the first phase had been completed.
The MCE stated that the execution of projects like the up-grading of the road in the area demonstrated the government’s commitment to the general development of the people in the Ejisu Juaben municipality, more especially in the realm of the road network system.
Nana Asuah Amoako II, Fumesuahene, who chaired the ceremony, commended the government for commencing the up-grading of the road for the people in the area since the road problem had been one of their major challenges over the years.
