President John Mahama has begun a nationwide working visit to inspect ongoing projects across the country and to also assure Ghanaians of his commitment to fulfilling ever single promise he made during the last election.
The visit is also to thank Ghanaians for making him the President in the last election.
The President yesterday started his rounds from the Volta region where he met with the chiefs and people of Ho before continuing to Nkwanta for a similar meeting.
At Nkwanta, the President inspected the ongoing Eastern corridor road that will link the Southern and Northern parts of the country.
He later assured a gathering of chiefs and people at Nkwanta that the project would be completed before the next election in 2016.
“I have been here, I have seen the project and am going to speak to the contractors. I am promising you, soon you will see action on the road. During the last election, I told you that I was looking for money to fix the bad road from Oti-Damanko to the Northern region. The good news is that we have received the money for work to begin on that stretch. There is a contractor standing by to start work on the road from Oti-Damanko to Nankpanduri in the Mamprusi area. So by 2016, we would have finished the Eastern corridor road. Work on the Dodi-pepeso and Asikuma stretch also stalled for some time but I have instructed the Finance Minister to release money for the project to continue,” the president said
He reiterated that his government will fulfill all the campaign promise it made to Ghanaians in the last elections.
