Gov’t Commences Road Rehabilitation Projects in Ejisu Ahead of By-Election

The government has embarked on a significant initiative to rehabilitate major roads within various communities in the Ejisu Municipality, with a commitment to ensuring the timely completion of these projects.

Minister for Roads and Highways, Francis Asenso Boakye, led officials from the Ministry to inspect the ongoing projects on Thursday, April 18, emphasizing that these efforts are not politically motivated despite the upcoming by-election in the area.

The Ministry disclosed that approximately 32 road infrastructure projects are underway within the Ejisu Constituency, overseen by the Urban, Feeder, and Highway Departments. Minister Boakye clarified that these contracts were awarded over the past three months, prior to the passing of the late Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Ampontuah Kumah.

Contrary to speculation, Minister Boakye emphasized that these projects are part of the government’s ongoing commitment to infrastructure development in the region, rather than being initiated solely for the upcoming by-election.

“Currently, about 32 projects are going on in the municipality, these projects include urban roads, Ghana Highway authority, and Feeder roads projects. I’m satisfied with the work going on, the contractors are some of the best we have.

“I’m confident they will continue to work very 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, the past three years some of the projects have been going on. The MP who passed on was instrumental in making sure 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 actively engaged in various projects across communities such as Achiakrom, Abankro, Donyina, Onwe, and Adako Jachie, signaling a tangible commitment to infrastructure enhancement in the Ejisu Municipality.
