President Akufo-Addo is touting his infrastructural achievements in the last four years.
Nana Akufo-Addo says under his tenure, five interchanges are being constructed simultaneously across the country.
Commissioning the first phase of the Obestebi Lamptey Interchange as part of his two-day campaign tour of the Greater Accra Region, President Akufo-Addo outlined the interchanges that are currently under construction in the country.
“Currently the following interchanges are under construction throughout the county; Pokuase interchange which is the first four-tier interchange in West Africa is 85% complete and sections of the interchange will be opened to traffic this very week. The Tamale interchange, which is the first interchange in Northern Ghana is 65% complete and is on course to being completed by the first quarter of 2021. PTC roundabout interchange in Takoradi, which is also the first interchange in the Western part of the country is progressing steadily. Nungua interchange, which is part of the La Beach world completion project is also progressing steadily. And Tema motorway phase 1, which has been completed and is being put to use, will see work start on the second phase very soon.”
He charged Ghanaians to extend his mandate, so he can continue to do more of the good works he has started.
“Completion of phase 1 of the Obetsebi Lamptey interchange shows the seriousness that my government attaches towards reducing the congestion in some of the major cities within the country.”
“This is the first time in the history of this country, that more than 5 interchanges are being constructed in the first-term administration. If there are any more reasons to give Nana and Akufo-Addo four more years to do more, this is one of them,” he added.
