President Nana Addo Dankwa Afuffo-Addo has declared 2021 as “a second year of roads”.
On Thursday, January 7, 2021, during his inauguration as the president of Ghana for his second term, he mentioned in his speech that he will largely focus on the development of roads to improve infrastructure this year.
“Our roads are being constructed at a faster pace than before, and yes, 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 deficits of our road infrastructure.”
He also added that he will improve railway lines in his second term.
“The development of our rail sector on which considerable resources and energies are being devoted will open up the country and also help realise the goal of regional and continental integration.”
President Akuffo Addo also pledged that he will launch more projects in his second term.
“The percentage of Ghanaians without access to potable water is said to be reduced significantly, following the commencement of water projects across the country. The majority of Ghanaians live in unacceptable housing, and we shall tackle the problem with vigour.”
