Ghana: My critics in the Ashanti Region will be disgraced for the rest of their lives – Akufo-Addo
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has lashed out at his opponents in the Ashanti Region.
He stated that since taking office, he has initiated numerous development projects in the region.
However, some people frequently criticize his leadership for its dedication to the New Patriotic Party’s base (NPP).
Those critics, he predicted, would be exposed soon.
The President delivered these remarks while speaking to a group of Suame chiefs and residents after cutting sod for the four-tier Suame Interchange Project.
“All those who have been saying bad things about me would be shamed today, tomorrow and tomorrow’s next”, he stated in the local Twi parlance.
President Akufo-Addo, who lauded his administration’s achievements in road building in the Ashanti region, revealed that the region has benefited from 295 kilometers of road developments since 2017, as the government addresses road infrastructure holistically across the country.
“Apart from this project, Government is tackling critical road projects throughout the country in a holistic manner, so that every part of Ghana shall have quality, all-weather roads.”
“In the Ashanti Region alone, the Akufo-Addo Government has completed asphalt overlay of two hundred and ninety-five kilometres (295kms) of roads since 2017.
“Some of the beneficiary areas include Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, that is in Subin Nhyiaeso and Bantama, Asokwa, Oforikrom, Kwadaso, Suame, Old Tafo, Asokore Mampong, Bekwai, Obuasi, Ejisu, Juaben, Sekyere East (Effiduase), Asante Mampong and Atwima Nwabiagya South.”
Additional 100 kilometres of local roads, he said, have also been constructed.
Again, Government has completed the construction of one hundred kilometres (100km) of local roads in Kumasi, which was undertaken by M/S Contracta. The beneficiary assemblies are Kumasi Metropolitan, Asokwa, Kwadaso, Oforikrom. Suame and Tafo Pakrono,” he said.
“In addition to the one hundred kilometres (100kms) of local roads I just mentioned, the Department of Urban Roads has completed another seventy-five kilometres (75kms) of town roads in Ashanti, including Bekwai Town roads, Kwamo Town Roads, Manhyia Roads (Buokrom) and Ejisu/Kwaso Town Roads. The Department of Feeder Roads has also completed the upgrading of sixty-eight kilometres (68kms) of selected feeder roads in the Ashanti and Western Regions, a project which was undertaken by M/S Sinohydro Corporation.”
On Monday, a group of individuals demonstrated against the President’s convoy as he was in Kumasi inspecting development projects and initiating others.
