President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has revealed that he’s secured funding for every project undertaken under his administration since his assumption of office on 7th January, 2017.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made this known at Enchi during day 2 of his 3-day tour of the Western North Region, where he cut the sod for the construction of the 71.25-kilometre Enchi to Elubo road, which will cost $116.2 million.
“When I came here a year ago, I assured the Chiefs and people that I will work hard to ensure that the Enchi to Elubo road commences. There were a number of processes, like the contractor and funding sources, that had to be completed before today’s ceremony could take place. All those processes have been successfully completed”
“I am not like some people who rush to cut sods without securing the requisite funding for the projects. I will never do that. When I cut the sod, it means all the processes have been completed and the money for the project is available. I am not out to deceive anyone,” the First Gentleman of the state posited.
Portion of the above statement is believed to be a response to former President John Dramani Mahama’s claim that the sitting President is going about cutting sods as a way of confusing the Ghanaian electorates.
