The People Of Tarkwa Recieves Good News As Akuffo Addo Fulfills His Promise And Gives More Promises

The President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo is on a tour to the Western and Western North region. At Tarkwa, the president has cut sod to the reconstruction of the 66 km Tarkwa - Agona Nkwanta main road which is in a very poor state. The contract has been awarded and will be completed in 36 months (3years). The contract is worth 95 million euros, and it is fully sponsored by a Dutch bank called AG Frankfurt.

The president in his speech first of all thanked the people of Tarkwa for their support during the elections and voting him into power. He mentioned that during his campaign rally, he traversed the area but because there were some conflicts in the area, he could not accomplish his mission.

However, he is now grateful that all disputes have been settled and there is now peace reigning between the traditional rulers in the area. He admonished the people to continue to maintain peace and keep supporting them so that they can work more for the people. With the president was the Roads Minister, Hon. Kwasi Ofori Atta. Hon. Ofori Atta speaking on the damaged Tarkwa - Agona Nkwanta road said the road was damaged because of the spoilt western railway line.

He added that a lot of big trucks also use that road. To rectify the situation, the road minister detailed that the road will be transformed into a two-lane road also known as a double lane. He added that with the commencement of this project, other protects will continue in the area and they will never stop.

Some of the other projects he mentioned were the improvement of drainage systems on the stretch as well as in all the towns and villages in the area. Again there will be street lights along the road and all the towns and villages along that stretch will have access to electricity.
