Roads in Mahama’s home region the worst in Ghana – Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has described as the worst in Ghana, roads in the Savannah Region.

According to him, though former President John Dramani Mahama had claimed to have undertaken unprecedented infrastructural development, the roads in his own home region are some of the worst in the country.

President Akufo-Addo who visited the North East Gonja as part of his working tour of the Savannah Region told a durbar of Chief and people at Kpalbe in the Salaga North Constituency.

He noted that in December 2016 before the election, John Mahama had touted his achievements in the delivery of infrastructure as unprecedented.

According to him, his predecessor claimed he (Akufo-Addo) was sleeping in his car when he said he had not seen this unprecedented infrastructural development.

He argued that when he became President the first things the chiefs and people ask him are roads.

“So it became obvious that we have not seen any unprecedented infrastructural development.”

“It was not true, especially in his (Mahama’s) own home region, because this is where some of the worst roads in Ghana are; in his own backyard in the Savannah Region,” he chided.

The President assured the chiefs and people that his NPP government is undertaking these infrastructural developments to put the ghost of the ‘unprecedented’ claims to rest.

Government, he said, is undertaking the construction of the 138 kilometre Tamale to Makango Road, and the construction of the 120 kilometre Binjai-Fufulso road.

The road network being worked on, he said, will come to pass and will be visible on the ground for all to see.

“It will not be in the green book or in the mouth of the president,” he added.
