Govt begins rehabilitation of major roads in Ejisu ahead of by-election

The government has commenced the rehabilitation of major roads within communities in the Ejisu Municipality in the Ashanti Region a head of the by-elections slated for April 30, 2024.

The government says it is poised to ensuring the completion of the projects as soon as possible.

The Roads and Highways Minister, Francis Asenso Boakye, who led officials of the Ministry to inspect the ongoing projects on Thursday, April 18, however, dismissed assertions that the projects were being done because of the upcoming by-election in the area.

The Minister said the government is undertaking about 32 road infrastructure projects within the Ejisu Municipality which are being carried out by the Urban, Feeder and Highway Departments.

The Minister noted that the contracts were awarded in the past three months when the late Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Ampontuah Kumah was still alive, reports Citi News.

“Currently, about 32 projects are going on in the municipality, these projects include urban roads, Ghana Highway authority, and Feeder roads projects. I’m satisfied with the work going on, the contractors are some of the best we have.

“I’m confident they will continue to work very hard so that we can complete the project as scheduled. None of these projects was awarded in the last three months. These are not by-election projects, the past three years some of the projects have been going on. The MP who passed on was instrumental in making sure that these projects are designed and constructed. Rest assured; these are not by-election projects; these are normal projects the ministry is implementing.”

Contractors are currently working on projects located in communities including Achiakrom, Abankro, Donyina, Onwe and Adako Jachie.
