President John Dramani Mahama has assured the chiefs and people of the Upper East Region of government’s commitment to developing the road network in the area. Speaking ahead of his #ChangingLives forum today[Thursday], President Mahama said efforts are being made to give the region a face-lift.
He said “government is doing a lot in respect of the road projects. When I visited Bawku the last time for the Samapii Festival, I assured the Bawku Naba that soon he is going to see a lot of action on the Bolga-Bawku road.” President Mahama explained that the contractor currently working on the road “is working on a certain phase of it,” adding that “we are going to bring a second contractor so that there will be two contractors working on the road.”
“The other contractor will work from where the other contract ends, and speed up the project as quickly as possible. I know that is a very important road and I can assure you that by the time I’m coming back next year, it will be in a much better condition than it is now,” he added. The President also inspected ongoing renovation at the Bolgatanga General Hospital before addressing party delegates at the changing lives forum.
