Akufo-Addo to inspect work on Madina-Adenta footbridges as he tours GAR

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected will from Tuesday, December 4 embark on a tour of the Greater Accra region to crown his regional working visits across the country.

The President has so far visited nine regions where he spent some time to interact with key stakeholders and the Regional Security Councils.

He also uses the opportunity to inspect on-going government projects across various sectors and where completed, commission them.as he tours GAR.

Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah told a news conference in Accra at the weekend that the President’s tour of the Greater Accra region will see him commission and inspect some major projects.

Some of these projects include ongoing works on the Eastern Railway line in Accra, Motorway Interchange as well as work on the Madina-Adenta Highway footbridges.

The President will also cut sod for the construction of a fishing harbour at James Town, and he will also commission a multipurpose Astro-Turf and community centre in Ablekuma Central.

According to the Information Minister, the President will be using the opportunity to apprise himself of the status of work as well as urging agencies and contractors to ensure diligence and value for money.

He said Government is committed to ensuring that these projects are completed despite the limited resources available.

“These and the many other projects that the President has inspected or commissioned on the other 9 tours have been funded even in the midst of the limited fiscal space and huge arrears inherited by the Akufo-Addo administration,” he said.

The Minister said the President expects that as outlined in the 2019 budget, the improving fiscal environment and significant reduction in arrears will afford the administration the opportunity to ramp up more economic infrastructure projects nationwide.
