President Akufo-Addo has declared the year 2021 as the second year of roads after the first year of roads in 2020 failed woefully due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Akufo Addo announced this in Parliament during his investiture as President for the second term.
“Our roads are being constructed at a much faster pace than before, and, yes, I acknowledge there are still many more kilometres to construct. We defined last year as ‘The Year of Roads’. This year will be the second ‘Year of Roads’, as we continue with our focus on dealing with the deficit in our road infrastructure”, he stated.
“The development of our rail sector, on which considerable resources and energies are being devoted, will open up the country, and lead to the creation of a more connected society, and will, also, help realise the goal of regional and continental integration,” the President added.
