Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Attah, Member of Parliament for the Atiwa West Constituency in the Eastern Region and current Minister for Roads and Highways, has promise Ghanaians that his government will build 6,000 kilometers of roads, 200 bridges, and 20 interchanges in the next four years.
In the first term of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-presidency, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Attah said about 4000 kilometers of roads had already been completed, seven interchanges had been built, and more than 40 bridges had been built, all in the first term of Nana Addo presidency. He went on to clarify what it would take to complete these projects in the next four years.
Most Ghanaians, however, believe the New Patriotic Party's road promises are untrustworthy since, prior to the 2020 general elections, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo promised Ghanaians a "Year of Roads," but nothing came of it.
They said that the President cut a lot of sod for a lot of roads to be built, but only a few of them were finished, and the rest were abandoned, resulting in avoidable road accidents. They went on to say that there is the need for major to minimize road accidents in Ghana.
As a result, most Ghanaians expect the government to complete unfinished and promised roads before making new promises. This is because they are fed up with the government’s empty promises.
