Vice President, Mahamudu Bawumia has said the previous National Democratic Congress (NDC) government failed to complete major roads in some regions in the country. He said this at the government’s 3 town hall meeting and results fair held at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Science on Tuesday, August 18, 2020.
“Under the previous government, after eight years in office, they could not complete one major road in either Upper West, Upper East or Western North Region,” said the Vice President.
Dr. Bawumia revealed the government intends constructing the roads in these regions before the end of the year.
“Before the end of this year, we would have already constructed the Lawra road. We would have also completed the Bolga to Bawku road for Upper East. What we have done in four years is more than what they would have done than in eight years.”
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia further said of 17,334 projects initiated by the government in various parts of the country, 8,746 of them have been completed while the remaining are ongoing.
He said the projects are in sectors including sanitation, agriculture, education, security, and sports.
“We have completed 8,746 [projects] and there is 8,588 ongoing,” Dr. Bawumia said.
