Madam Mavis Nkansah Boadu, the Deputy Minister of Roads and Highways, has assured residents of the Western Region that the government will continue to improve the region’s road network as planned.
Despite the fact that 2020 was designated as the Year of Roads, she said the COVID-19 outbreak had thrown a wrench in the government’s plans, adding that many contractors had already returned to the job site and that work was moving steadily.
As part of her three-day working tour to the Region, Madam Boadu, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Afigya Sekyere East constituency, examined the progress of work on the Dompim and Nsuaem town roads in the Tarkwa-Nusaem Municipality.
Mr Benjamin Kessie, Municipal Chief Executive of Tarkwa-Nsuaem, Mr Ebenezer Annor-Kwarfo, Municipal Chief Engineer, and some New Patriotic Party constituency executives accompanied the Deputy Minister on the tour.
She praised Mr George Mireku Duker, MP for Tarkwa-Nsuaem, for working tirelessly to ensure that the roads in his area were in good working order so that inhabitants could go about their everyday lives without difficulty.
The Deputy Minister urged citizens to be patient as the administration followed through on its commitments about roads in the Western Region and throughout the country.
