According to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his administration has constructed more roads than any other in the 4th Republic of Ghana’s existence.

Delivering the State of the Nation speech in Parliament on Wednesday, March 8, President Akufo-Addo said the majority of funds loaned have gone into the building of roadways.

“Mr. Speaker, the details of all these roads are attached in the annex to this Message. I have done so because, last year, when I made a similar pronouncement, I was met with howls and gasps of incredulity from the Minority benches, and so I thought it appropriate, this time, to present it as an annex to the Statement, which will be part of Hansard.”

The President discussed additional infrastructure and development initiatives that had been carried out during his administration in addition to the building of roadways.

He claimed that his administration had created the Zongo Development Fund to serve the requirements of Zongo and inner-city neighborhoods, built more railways than any other government during the Fourth Republic, and effectively enacted a National Identification System with the Ghana card.

He said he is proud of the amount of work that his government has done, especially in the road sector.

“Roads constitute the largest number of questions asked in this House by Members of Parliament; a large amount of the monies we borrow are for road construction. Shall we dare stop constructing roads,” he asked?

“Indeed, the evidence of how state funds have been used to improve our society is all over the country. No district or constituency has been left out. And I believe there are many Ghanaians who will vehemently disagree when some say there is nothing to show for all the funds that have been at my government’s disposal” President Akufo-Addo added.
