On Wednesday, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo gave instructions for the first phase of the construction of a four-storey traffic junction in Pokuase on the road to Akkra-Nsawa.
The president, who is on a two-day pre-election trip from Greater Accra, crossed an intersection to partially open the $84 million worth of road sections.
The Pokuase Junction, which connects the Nsawam Strait with the George Walker Bush Highway, is jointly funded by the African Development Bank and the Ghanaian government.
The project was originally planned for October this year and is expected to be completed in March 2021. Work on the fair started in 2018.
China Zhongmei Engineering Company Limited is carrying out the project.
Once completed, this infrastructure, the most important in West Africa, will increase mobility on the Accra-Nsawamam route of the Accra-Kumasi road, reduce the number of accidents in the ACP centre and promote sustainable economic growth in the region, and facilitate transport between the Tema-Ouagadougou and Bamako corridors.
President Akoufo-Addo had previously unveiled the statue of the late Teresa Amelie Tagoye, former minister of state, member of parliament and the first national women’s organization of the ANP, on the Densman roundabout in the western district of Ablekuma.
He described Mrs Tagoe, who died 10 years ago, as a courageous participant in our fight for freedom and democracy in Ghana. ”
She was determined to break through the glass ceiling and the glass barrier and make it clear that women, like all men, can make a great contribution to the public life of our country.
She was a politician from the first night, she founded the women’s wing of the nuclear power plant, she was an energetic member of the nuclear power plant until her early death … she served with zeal and enthusiasm on the board of present-day Kufuor.
Today’s ceremony reminds me of my life of contribution, the life of participation, the life of helping your community Your parish will not forget you.
I am glad to have lived to see this monument in memory of him, his sacrifice and his work. This is a clear example of what is possible for each of us if we remain true to our beliefs, he said.
The president also stopped at Mallam Market and Odorkor Truck Station, both located in the northern district of Ablekuma and the Agbogbloshi market area, where he could talk to dealers, business drivers, residents, community leaders and identifiable groups and sell continuity reports.
He told them that the success of his government’s policies and programmes since he took office in 2017 was an appeal to the Ghanaians to extend the mandate of the New Patriotic Party to lay the foundations for the transformation and prosperity of the country.
The President was accompanied by the Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyeremateng, the Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Atta, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, and other government delegations and leaders of the New Patriotic Party.
