Infrastructural development has featured prominently in our political campaign for some time now. The two major political parties in Ghana have always engaged in comparison of infrastructure records in all election years as basis or which they should be voted for.
The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia says the government is not just building infrastructure but a nation. Dr. Bawumia was speaking at a sod-cutting ceremony for works to begin on the upgrading of inner roads within all the Garrisons of the Ghana Armed Forces across the country on Friday, 22nd May.
“We are not just building roads and infrastructure; we are building a country. We are building an inclusive, modern economy while at the same time reducing the suffering of our people. Even though the data shows that there is no first-term government in the history of the Fourth Republic that has built more infrastructure than the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, we know, and we have always known, that building infrastructure is not enough; we need to build a nation. The record that we have established between 2017 and 2019 is very very clear. We have restored macroeconomic stability, we are putting this country on the road to self-sufficiency in agriculture and we are industrializing this country.” he said.
