President John Dramani Mahama has cut sod for reconstruction work to begin on the Bolgatanga-Bawku Road.
Speaking on Monday at Zebilla in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region, the President assured Ghanaians work on the 115-kilometre-long international road would not see any delay because “funds have been made available” for the project.
President Mahama is on a two-day visit to the region as part of his “Accounting to the People” tour of the country.
His trip to the region, which began Monday, is the ninth leg of his nationwide tour.
“This road runs through seven districts and runs through a total of nine constituencies. And so, it’s a very important road to many people. And that’s why government is investing in completing this road,’ he said.
Ultimate News’ Edward Adeti reports that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Zebilla and former Interior Minister, Cletus Apul Avoka, summed up the excitement of the region about the project when he addressed the crowd.
