President Akufo-Addo has said that the New Patriotic Party is better at protecting the public funds than the opposition National Democratic Congress when in government.
“It is important to put on record, that the original contract design was for a three-tier interchange. However, through efficient management by my government, the interchange was modified to a four-tier structure within the same contract sum,” the President said this while Commissioning the Pokuase Interchange in Accra Friday.
He said his administration spent $289million in constructing three interchanges as against the $260million used by the Mahama administration to construct just one.
“Indeed, 289 million United States dollars has been used by the Akufo-Addo government to construct three interchanges. That is the Pokuase, Obetsebi Lamptey and Tamale, as opposed to 260 million United States dollars being used by the Mahama government to construct just the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange. These are further examples of the fact that we in the New Patriotic Party are good protectors of the public purse,” he stressed.
The President urged drivers to obey to all the road safety regulations to ensure safety on the interchange.
“I appeal to the users of this facility, especially drivers, to adhere to the various road safety measures put in place for the safe use of the facility. The modernization of Ghana is steadily gathering momentum, and I entreat all Ghanaians to join hands in building the Ghana we want,” he said.
