President John Mahama has announced his readiness and willingness to fulfill and honour all his promises to the people of this country.
“I promised during the campaign time that there will be massive improvement on road development in the Eastern Region,” adding that this is some of the promise he gave to the people of Eastern Region.
He said this when he cut the sod for reconstruction of the first phase of the 20-kilometer Bonsu-Kukurantumi road under the Cocoa Road Rehabilitation Project in the cocoa growing regions.
Daily Express gathered that the project forms part of the phase one and two of the cocoa road rehabilitation project and President Mahama expressed the hope that by the end of the phase five, roads in the region would see much improvement.
President Mahama performed this ceremony as part of his #ChangingLives Tour of the Eastern Region last weekend.
The project is estimated at GH¢ 32,000,000.00.
President Mahama said during the 2012 election campaign, he travelled extensively throughout the Eastern Region and the main demand of the chiefs was the rehabilitation of the roads.
He said he therefore made up his mind to embark on a massive rehabilitation of the roads in the region after winning the elections.
President Mahama said, currently, many road rehabilitation contracts have been awarded in the region and mentioned some of them as Suhum-Apedwa, Apedwa-Kibi-Bonsu Junction road, Suhum-Asamankese road and Nsawam-Asamankese road.
The Regional Minister, Mr Antwi-Boasiako Sekyere thanked the President for honouring his promise to the chiefs.
Osabarima Boamah Darko, Chief of Kukurantumi urged the President to be brave and go on with his development projects and let nothing detract him from his goals.
President later addressed a rally dubbed the 'Agenda 50/50' Rally.
