Finance Minister, Mr Ken Ofor- Atta has assured Ghanaians that all bad roads in the major cities across the country will be fixed by the ‘obedient’ Nana Addo-led government.
“Fellow Ghanaians, I wish to plead with you and assure you to bear with us for your obeying government, the Akufo-Addo government will fix your roads and we shall fix them not with words and pictures.” He assured
Presenting the mid-year budget review statement on the floor of parliament on Monday, 29 July 2019, Mr Ofori-Atta also noted that government is working 'very hard' to ensure that the rate of poverty is reduced.
“The president is always quick to remind us of the urgency to meet the needs and aspirations of the Ghanaian people. Just last week as we discuss the details of this statement, the president reminded us that in spite of all that we have managed to achieve so far, too many Ghanaians must still be taken out of poverty.”
“He reminded us that we are certainly not there yet in spite of our efforts to confront poverty, fix our roads, provided community housing, support our farmers, protect the vulnerable, offer better condition of service to our nurses, teachers, security officers, get business operating optimally.
“He said we are being checked and that we should be bold then in taking steps that will offer us the fiscal space to improve the lives of those who we serve,” he noted
