“Any contractor who is lax in the performance of his duties will be shown the exit,” said the president, stressing that the Ministry of Roads and Highways should ensure strict supervision of all road contracts.
President Nana Akufo-Addo, speaking to a durbar of the chiefs and people of Manso-Adubia in the Amansia South district of the Ashanti region, said that the execution of road projects in the country should be profitable.
The President, who was in the Region for a three-day working visit, was not satisfied with the deplorable nature of the District’s road network.
Therefore, he said, his second term would work harder to improve the situation if the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) were given the mandate in the Dec. 7 election.
Despite its enormous gold deposit and economic potential, the region’s road network is nothing out of the ordinary, making it difficult to facilitate socio-economic activities.
President Nana Akufo-Addo said that the economic performance and management of the nuclear power plant has brought many benefits to citizens, citing the implementation of “ One District, One Factory (1D1F) ”, “ One District , a warehouse ”, “ Planting for food and employment ” and the “Planting for export and rural development” programs.
Under the 1D1F program, the government had completed 76 factories over the past three years, while more than 230 were in various stages of completion.
Regarding the “Free Senior High School (SHS)” program, the president justified the government’s determination to launch it, saying that the underlying objective was to develop a significant level of human resources in Ghana.
