President Akufo-Addo says government does not have the necessary funds to fix, expand and rehabilitate all the roads in the country.
In his words: “We are not going to build all the roads in Ghana, we don’t have that much money, but we will make significant progress in the course of next year.
“But the country will experience a significant expansion, rehabilitation of the road infrastructure in the course of this next year which we have dubbed the year of roads”. noted.
Addressing the media at a media encounter at the Jubilee House Friday, the president said however that Ghanaians will experience significant expansion in the course of next year which has been dubbed “year of roads”.
The Finance minister during the 2020 budget reading proclaimed the ensuing year as the year of roads.
“Today the cry everywhere in Ghana is about the poor state of our roads. It is an unprecedented cry and it makes you wonder where all the roads in the NDC’s Green Book are
“Mr. Speaker, this is why we are going to focus more on fixing our roads across the country in 2020 and beyond. To get the road sector moving and contractors back to work, government will pay 80% of all contractors. Speaker, Ghanaians want action on our roads, not words or plans or Green Book claims about what has been done. We intend to swing into action and let our work do the talking for us,” he said.
