“ This is a bridge that every government since independence has said it will do and when President Akufo-Addo came here last year said we should find the money to Construct this bridge and Insha Allah we have awarded the contract and the contractor will start work soon to begin work.”
Addressing the people of Daboya-Mankarigu, Dr. Bawumia said the NPP was a visionary government and will transform the country for the benefit of all Ghanaians.
He said the Daboya-Mankarigu area has lots of potential and that government will explore all the natural resources by connecting the areas with massive infrastructure.
