President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured that his administration will fix the Eastern Corridor roads since in his view, the erstwhile John Mahama administration failed to execute the job.
Nana Akufo-Addo made the remarks while addressing the chiefs and people of Hohoe on Day two of his Volta Regional tour.
According to him, his journey to that part of the country was a bumpy one owing to the terrible nature of the roads.
He told the chiefs and people on Tuesday, 10 July 2018 that: “President Mahama was saying that the period of his office has seen infrastructural development that we had never seen in Ghana before, unprecedented infrastructural development, and then I said I don’t see these unprecedented development, everywhere I go, I was on bad roads, and he said I was asleep on the road and that is why I didn’t see the good development that had taken place.
“Today, I’ve come on the eastern corridor road and I didn’t sleep one inch, I couldn’t sleep [because the road was bad]. We are going to fix it, Amoako Atta [Roads Minister] has told you he is going to fix it, we are going to fix it and it will not be for anybody to say whether somebody is asleep or not asleep, they will see that the roads have been fixed.”
Meanwhile the President will round of his tour of the Volta Region today, Wednesday, 11 July 2018.
