Government Initiates Rehabilitation of Key Roads in Ejisu Ahead of By-election

The government has commenced the restoration of crucial roads within communities in the Ejisu Municipality, with a commitment to completing the projects on schedule.

Roads and Highways Minister, Francis Asenso Boakye, along with officials from the Ministry, inspected the ongoing projects on Thursday, April 18, and dismissed claims that the projects were politically motivated due to the upcoming by-election in the area.

The Ministry disclosed that the government is executing approximately 32 road infrastructure projects within the Ejisu Constituency, managed by the Urban, Feeder, and Highway Departments.

Minister Asenso Boakye clarified that the contracts were awarded over the past three months while the late Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Ampontuah Kumah, was alive.

He emphasized that the constructions are not exclusively for the upcoming by-election in the Constituency.

He stated, “Currently, about 32 projects are ongoing in the municipality, including urban roads, Ghana Highway authority, and Feeder roads projects. I’m satisfied with the work progress; the contractors are among the best we have.

I’m confident they will continue to work 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; in the past three years, some of the projects have been ongoing.

The MP who passed on was instrumental in ensuring 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 active in communities such as Achiakrom, Abankro, Donyina, Onwe, and Adako Jachie.
