The Vice-President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said no government under the Fourth Republic can be compared with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) when it comes to the construction of roads across the country.
The vice-president was speaking at the commissioning ceremony of a 56.4km road project in the Kadjebi district of the Oti Region.
The project was undertaken by Sinohydro corporation Ltd and funded by the Chinese Government.
Addressing the chiefs and people of the Kadjebi district, the vice-president said, “In the history of the fourth Republic of Ghana, no government has constructed more roads than the New Patriotic party NPP and it is on record.”
According to him, the current hardship in the country is a result of COVID-19 and the Ukraine-Russia war but will soon be a thing of the past.
Adding that the government is making all efforts to resolve the current economic crisis.
The Roads Minister, Kwasi Amoako-Atta on his side said, Ghana will continue to see many road networks open under the leadership of the New Patriotic Party hence the need to support the government.
The minister mentioned that a road network opens many opportunities to communities and places with good roads and that is what the NPP party is doing to ensure places with deplorable roads and given the needed attention.
The project, which is part of the Eastern Corridor Road, links the southern and Northern parts of the country as well as neighbouring countries.
The road also links towns such as Kadjebi, Menuso, Dzindziso, Poase Cement, Koto Nkwanta, Ahamasu, Dodi Papase and Dodo Pepesu among others.
The project is an Engineering and Procurement Contract (EPC) between the Government of Ghana and Sinohydro Corporation Limited of China under the Master Project Support Agreement (MPSA) to support priority projects in Ghana.
